which thermostat control are you using? Before installing the Truesteam I recommend you do some research on the product. There are a LOT of problems with the truesteam.

Trane XL900 thermostat... which I think is part of my problem because it's a communicating system (3-wire thermostat).

Unfortunately, yes. I'm just going to install the Trane THUMD200 that was supplied with my system. Anyone want a good deal on a TrueSteam w/ a remote nozzle kit? I bought it way too long ago to return.

Yep, that's the one! Is that a respectable unit? I'm not opposed to buying a replacement.

that is a good unit, based on aprilaire's design. Not much can go wrong with it!
