As opposed to probe thermostat.

Image of thermodisk fan control dial settings. These are more common on older furnaces than new ones that will use a control module to control the fan.

 Used on furnaces where there is not enough room for a conventional probe type limit control.



Package that thermostat came in. This one was purchased from Aireco in Maryland, you can also get them from Grainger or Johnstone Supply. For a list of supply houses click here.

Carrier part number HN67QC 005 Ths one has two sets of switches (1 to 2, 3 to 4) and two timing functions to minimize use of the second heating element.


  Definitions:
  1. Blower: usually a squirrel cage centrifugal air moving device. Will move large volumes of air relatively quiet. Will use less energy with more back pressure.
  2. Fan: a paddle type air moving device used where noise is not a major consideration. Will use more energy with more back pressure.
  3. Combustion blower: A blower used on high efficiency furnaces or oil burners to move combustion air. usually 1/20 to 1/6  horsepower.
  4. OEM: Original equipment manufacturer.
  5. Horsepower: 746 watts
  6. KW Kilowatt (1000 watts) or 3400 BTUs per hour
  7. RPM: revolutions per minute.
  8. Service factor: the extent to which a motor can be safely overloaded beyond its name plate ratting without over heating.
  9. Air over horsepower: The rating of a motor assuming air flow through the windings usually as a result of the air moving device.
  10. SAE: Society of Automotive Engineers.
  11. Ton 12,000 BTUs per hour of heating or cooling
