NOTE: Depending on your HVAC equipment, the number of stages and their exact meanings may vary. Your system may not have all of the stages below, or you may have additional ones not specifically listed. Your HVAC dealer can provide additional information regarding your specific equipment.
We highly recommend that you enable American Standard® Diagnostics to allow your dealer to see information about your HVAC system performance.
