I agree with Timex's post on using the low speed for noise reduction. I have since installed a Luxpro digital on my Windjammer with an spdt switch. I bought the switch from Radio shack and installed it on bottom of my thermostat out of sight but easy to reach with my index finger. Don't bother unless you just want a longer project on the switch.

Installed this one today but have a question settings. It is a propane only Suburban furnace. Photo below shows the setup options, I only have the ones started. Im confused on the Heat Cycle Rate (CPH: cycles/hour). Can anyone help me select ?

Use setting '5' for the heat cycle.

On the back of most thermostats like that there is a small screw for adjusting how close to temp it turns the furnace or ac on and off. It is there so it isn't going on and off every time it changes 1 degree.
Look on the instructions if you still have them and it should show it there.

You need to check manual. Most of the lower cost digitals do not have hysteresis controls. Some are set for 0.5 degrees and some at 1.0 degree. Because of the lower volume of air and the lower R level of insulation as compared to your house, it is easier on the equipment if you can set the hysteresis at 2-3 degrees. If you have control, it will be programmable via the menu.
