    Had a RUUD Gas furnace and AC unit installed and just now got around to setting up my Thermostat Wifi. Works great via my Phone apps, but can't figure out where in the menu to setup outdoor...

    Frigidaire gas furnace and A/C products.

    Carrier 80% 2stage furnace (58CVA)

    Looking for a low budget option. Would the 2 stage 80% still be more efficient than my 24 plus year old 80% single stage York?

    So if I'm understanding the Angies list link properly, selecting the right installer is more important than choosing a specific brand since they're pretty much all made thru a few main manufactors.

    Sounds good. So is York still reliable equipment being as I'm going on 23 years with my current furnace? I definitely want a reliable system that will last just as long.
