    I've just purchased a new Goodman heat pump and Air Handler. The air handler has a ECM fan motor and the brochure says the fan speed is variable. I'm guessing with the Comfortnet thermostat which costs about 379 dollars. It is a touchscreen etc..

    I am wondering if there is a plain non-touchscreen thermostat I could buy with same programming capabilities as the Comfortnet thermostats costing alot less than 379 bucks.

    Does anyone have any info to share?

    Appreciate the help.

    I think the furnace decides what fan speed to use, independent of the 'stat and based on several variables. It may use a small digital or analog computer.

    The 'stat just calls for heat.
