They even make models now that plug into an iPhone or Android device.

comment Constant cold air from vents with new downdraft furnace
Is the furnace in the attic? If so, is the portion of the attic where the furnace is, unconditioned space (unheated)? Does the ducting run through unconditioned space? If so, are the ducts insulated?

comment Constant cold air from vents with new downdraft furnace
Typically a down draft (down flow) furnace, is a unit that takes return air in the top, and puts out heated air out the bottom. As opposed to a up draft (up flow) unit, which takes return air in the bottom, and pushes heated air out the top. In neither case should the outdoor air be mixing with the conditioned air. If the blower is always running, the furnace would be circulating indoor air even when the burners are off. If that's the case, you can likely disable this feature. Make sure the FAN switch on the thermostat is set to AUTO, not ON.

What is the make and model number of the furnace? Can you post a photo of the installation?

@M-R I'm not a parts expert. I'd start by connecting the manufacturer.

comment Water pressure regulator bad?
I've never seen, or heard of anybody adjusting the pressure with a valve open. Typically you adjust a bit, open and close a valve, take a reading, repeat.

comment Water pressure regulator bad?
If a faucet is open while you're adjusting the regulator, how will you know when you've reached the desired pressure?

comment Water pressure regulator bad?
So it's 60 psi with valves closed, and 20 psi with them open? Or it was 60 psi, then you opened and closed the valves, and now it's 20 psi with the valves closed?
