Question about Heating & Cooling
I have a RUUD Achieve 90 plus furnace, it seems to keep a good temp in the house. When it is cold out (10 to -0) it seems like it runs all the time. The furnace will shut off, then 2 minutes later it comes back on. The temp is maintained well . The is wife is freak'in out about it running all the time. Is it normal to operate like this?
Aren't they just lovely to mess with! I personaly don't think there suppose to run like that either. Mine did the same damn thing, run for awhile and "poof" back on again in about 2 minutes. Over and over!! All the time. What I did was mess around with the Thermostat. One of those old round ones. Looked like it wasn't Level at all, so I fixed that. Plus on the lnside of the thermostat, there's a little brass pointer (on the righside bottom) there's also a bunch of numbers on there which I have no idea what there for. Some of the numbers on it are: .8 .7 .6 .5 .4 .3 and so on. I'm trying to find out what their for and which one it's suppose to be pointed too. My sister was having problems with her furnace. It's a natural gas furnace. The maintenance man found a few things wrong with it. The air filter was (dirty) replaced. Replaced the Thermostat. Something in the furnace wasn't working right either. Not sure if it was the Igniter or the Jets? inside or not. Maybe it was both. I'd ask her but some women don't pay attention to things like that. lol
Hope this helps out. Good luck!
