Im trying to understand if my furnace has been setup correctly.

I have 5 wires running from my thermostat (nest)
To my furnace(r96va1002521msa)

I looked up that manual for the furnace and i was able to confirm it is in fact a 2 stage furnace.

I do not have a jumper in the furnace between w1 and w2. As well as all my dip switches are off(factory settings).

It seems as though someone at sometime moved dipswitxh 10. But its off now.

Here are my questions.
Have i been living on stage 1 heating the wholw time have had this furnace. Last 5 years. or is stage 2 being triggered some other way. Am i misunderstanding dip switches.

Appreciate the help.

With both dip switches in off position, autostaging is off, which means the only way the furnace would run in high fire is a call on W2. Which means you would have to have two stage thermostat with W2 hooked up, or the furnace would only operate in low fire. With autostaging on furnace will operate in low heat on start up, than after a set time if thermostat is not satisfied furnace goes into high fire.
