I've only come across this site a couple of days ago, in pursuit of information on programmable 2 stage thermostats.
I have a 6 month old Lennox G60V 2 stage furnace with a 1 stage thermostat.
I will try keeping this as short as possible. I use this for HEAT only (no A/C needed).
Anyway...I would appreciate anyone's thoughts on the White-Rodgers 1F95-371 2 stage thermostat. I like most of the features on it, but need clarification on the staging it does when it is running. I hope I can make this as clear as possible too
My main question is about the recovery mode: Will it start the 2nd stage right away (or quickly) from night time setback?
I set the temperature at night down to 17 Celsius (62.6Farenheit) and want it up to 19 C (67 F) when I start wandering around (and for sure, before my wife wakes up).
On the 1st stage it can take over one hour to raise 1 C (1.8 F), so having it run forever on stage one during recovery is not a comfortable option, considering the winter temperatures here range from 32 F down to -40 F (0 C to -40 C)
I hope that your knowledge and vast experience can help me out in my decision.
