Edit: new fans ARE designed to be run all the time to promote balanced temperatures.
If you have a furnace with a DC motor then its hardly a cost at all. If you have an older furnace where the cost is higher then you have another reason to replace it don't you...
can you back that up? I'm only asking coz our home is a year old so we have a new furnace. Can you give some websites that say its better to keep the fan on 24/7 vs auto and there is no real different in cost? I will tell you that before we got the AC we always had the furnace fan on or it would get to hot, but the guy that installed our AC unit said always keep it on auto. It true our upstairs gets very hot compared to downstairs which is prefect.
I have read that turning of the vents on the ground floor will push more airflow up to the second floor and that floor wont cool down so quickly that it turns of the AC, is this true?
PS sorry for the improper sentence structure, to lazy to correct it :P
