    I've had one in my home unit since 2010 with no problems yet. If you have a 14 inch wide furnace it's going to be a tight fit. Mine is in a lennox g40 series. Nice quite motors.

    I put a 1/2hp one in my HP 2 years ago. Works great. Very happy with it. Got a little more airflow out of it as well.

    Love it. I use a timer to delay my fan in cooling to mimic the profile of a true ecm variable speed motor.

    Do, or do not. There is no try.

    that's a great idea. I think I will order another one for my second floor unit. A lot of our local co tractors are anti ecm motors. I can see the benefit of them.

    I would avoid them due to cost but thats my opinion.

    What's their reasoning for being anti-ECM? I'm curious.
