And is there an easy way where I can check if they are coming on in stages?

thanks again

also, Someone earlier in this said that using a 10kw unit that comes on full with no staging would be fine. Did I understand that correctly?
10KW coming on not staged is fine. During defrost you'll prefer 10KW over 5KW.
