The ComfortNet™ communicating control system monitors and analyzes the entire HVAC system for irregular conditions. If detected, the control will take appropriate action and display the results in the diagnostic menu on the control unit. Features include the 12-square-inch touchscreen display, oversized touch keys, an intuitive menu with audio prompts and color-coded temperature touch keys, dedicated programmable or nonprogrammable modes, selectable energy management recovery program, and battery backup. The control system makes complex, time-consuming system wiring frequently associated with high-efficiency residential HVAC systems obsolete, says the company. It allows an HVAC tech to use four or fewer control wires to connect a gas furnace or air handler to the control system. A transformer is included with the control kit, which can be installed in the condensing unit, reducing wiring requirements. With its auto-configuration capability, once the low-voltage wires and the ComfortNet control are installed, a search for the indoor and outdoor components of the systems begins. By means of shared data programming, the control system will automatically set up the airflow and all operating characteristics based on the capacity of the indoor and outdoor system components. The control system supports various Goodman® and Amana® brand HVAC products.
