Back again with a question about a Thermo Pride OH6FX

HiBack again with a question about a Thermo Pride OH6FX furnace, an Amana ASZC18 Heat Pump controlled by a Prestige IAQ 2.0 thermostat.. As wired the furnace blower runs high speed (1622 CFM) all the time when the heat pump is cooling the house in both low and high stages. After reading the furnace lit I realized it's Dehum connection when activated runs the blower at a lower speed. So I connected the Y1 wire of the Amana to the Dehum and the Dehum to the Y1 terminal of the Honeywell EIM. The Y2 is connected to the Y in the furnace and then to the Y2 in the EIM. The blower now operates at 800 CFM in the low stage of cooling and at 1100 CFM in high stage. I did it to take advantage of the nergy savings of a 2 stage cooling system. Is this correct or is the air flow from the blower now too low.

I have a GeneralAire Dehumidifier in my crawlspace and the

I have a GeneralAire Dehumidifier in my crawlspace and the compressor is running when it shouldn't be. When I bought the unit the fan and compressor turned on/off at the same time unless it was in defrost mode. Now, when the fan shuts off after the set humidity level is reached the compressor continues to run. Besides the compressor issue, the unit is functioning properly and dehumidifying the air like it did when it was first installed. I'm looking for some input on what the problem may be. Here is a link to the product page with some reference info as well. http://www.generalfilters.com/products/de-humidifiers/de-humidifier-1300/DH70-Dehumidifier_PT916.html

I have an Amana ASZC18 heat pump. There is a white wire in the cable coming from the heat pump that the installer didn't connect. It is the l connection. Should it be connected to the l connection in the EIM panel of the prestige iaq 2.0.

We have carrier heating and cooling units with built in

We have carrier heating and cooling units with built in humidistat. My sister keeps turning the humidistat controller all the way to the -20 deg F. Setting/0 % humidity. The controller and manual state you should set the controller to the outdoor temperature and adjust up or down from there. It is summer here. Temps from 70-90 deg. I understand that it is personal preference and condensation on windows, etc...It seems like the "temperature guide" is there for a reason and should be used as the starting point. Am I correct?

There We have an ARUF303016BA HVAC unit in our apartment

Hi thereWe have an ARUF303016BA HVAC unit in our apartment which we rent.When I set the thermostat to 65, the temperature never reaches below 70 degrees indoors.I have tried replacing the air filter to no avail.What I do notice is that there is a lot of dripping from the pipe which is connected to one of the outlets, which leads to a drain in our laundry room (where the AC unit is).Is this something I can fix myself or should I get a pro to come check on it?Thanks!
