Customer Question
my new maytag furnace will...
my new maytag furnace will not warm my condo from 66 degrees at night to 72 degrees in the morning within a three or four hour time period. The furnace fires up and then cycles down numerous times warming the house, but in four hours it never reaches 72 before the automatic thermostat resets to 68 degrees during the day.
