I just had a new Infinity Carrier
System installed, 19VS outdoor unit and the 59MN7 furnace. The WiFi Touch thermostat.
DUMBED DOWN QUESTION....How do I manually make the fan run, without overriding my scheduled fan settings?
ADVANCED DETAILS.... I have the continuous fan speed set to "auto" in all my comfort settings (home, away, sleep, work). Using this setting, the fan only runs when the furnace or AC requires it. Perfect, and as I want it to work.
Lets say I want to turn off the system, open the windows, and turn on just the fan for air circulation....
I select "System" and then "Fan only"... the fan doesnt turn on. If i then go to "features" and change fan speed from "auto" to either low, med, or high..... the fan turns on and runs at the requested speed. So at this point the AC and Heat are off, and the fan is running as requested which is the desired operation.
HOWEVER... when I make the fan speed change as noted above, it also saves this change into my schedule. So if I was in "away" mode, now everytime "away" mode rolls around, the fan will run continually until manually changed back to "auto". Super annoying. It also means that the continuous fan will turn itself off when it switches between comfort settings based on time of day.
What am I a missing? The cheapo thermostats from Home depot will allow fan only operation without permanently overriding your scheduled settings. I find it hard to believe this is the only way!
