Furnace cycles while heating the home
I keep the heat at 65 degrees when I goto bed. When I wake up in the morning, I set it to 70 degrees. The furnace will come on, but it takes lots of breaks as it makes its way up to the newly set temperature. Because it takes so many breaks, it take forever for it to eventually reach 70 degrees. Here is some info I found on the controls that may be helpful to you smart guys:
Lennox Elite Series
Johnson Controls (G776RGD-14)
Intermittent Pilot Ignition Control
85 second trial
15 second prepurge
60 minute retry
When the unit is taking a break, the fan is not blowing, but I hear the furnace still "on", whatever that means. On the Johnson Controls, I see a LED light that blinks 1 second on, 5 seconds off. According to the printed label on the controls:
"in retry mode"
The weird thing is, a "professional" said there was nothing wrong that he could see. Can someone help me figure out why the heater doesn't run continuously until the desired temperature is reached?
