Very well said Juan. Inverter driven compressors. modulating gas valves that vari the fan speed, Who needs a college education, service techs will be spending their lives learning how to troubleshoot this stuff. No more butt crack showin, techs now must be sharp.

By the way,for York, the Triathalon experiment is second only in failure to their heat pipe furnace. Anybody remember those from what 83' - 84'?
