    Hello, I'm new here, but I've been trying to find posts on a similar issue and I have not found any. Here's the scoop, both on heat and A/C settings my blower motor with cycle rapidly when it should just stay off. The thermostat is not commanding the blower motor to turn on but it rapidly...

    New steam boiler (Burnham Independence IN5) in my 100-year old house goes through 25 on-off cycles to raise house temp 3 degrees. Installation contractor is not concerned. I'm leery of his advice. Does this extreme short cycling need to be fixed and how should it be resolved? Details...
