How many times does your 90+ furnace cycle per hour?
One cycle is defined by when your furnace starts to blow hot air until the next time it starts to blow hot air.
IF your 90+ furnace cycles more than 3 times per hour it isn't set up correctly. The thermostat is supposed to be set so a 90+ furnace only cycles 3 times per hour.
If not set up correctly your furnace will fail sooner and operate at a much lower efficiency.
What the hell would someone, who states that they are from Hawaii, know about furnaces??

BTW, don't set your thermostat into the "HOLD" mode.

When you do that it will cause your furnace to "short cycle". On a 90+ furnace that will damage your furnace AND cause your fuel bills to increase.

Don't know why there is a hold mode on thermostats. If used it damages your furnace.

Have you checked it to make sure it isn't short cycling?

IF it's a 2 stage, 90%+ furnace it must be set and functioning at 3 cycles per hour, NO MORE or it's losing efficentcy AND will wear out prematurly.

I'm surprised that "hot head" Trigger would even need a furnace!
