Can you help me find a replacement thermostat? Having trouble!


We got this!
Ok, sooooo, looking @ manual for system settings. Available Options: Multi-stage heat pump, one for Conventional multi-stage system 2 heat 1 cool, Conventional multi-stage system 2 heat 2 cool, Conventional multi-stage 1 heat 2 cool.
Is mine just Multi-stage heat pump or one of the others? Just want to be sure!

We are finally getting around to doing this change out, and we are confused with the diagram provided where it says "E= AUX and E". There is only one wire, so how can we get it to both? There is no jumper on Aux and E on the new one. There is an outlet for Aux and E separately.

you must provide your own field installed jumper by cutting a piece of wire and using it to jumper E and AUX

Thanks. Now it seems he can't get the unit to turn off. He said he turned it off at the box outside, but it doesn't seem any of our interior breakers are turning off the old tstat. When we unplug the face from the wall unit it goes off but when we put it back on the wall unit, it turns right back on. We have no idea if it's on batteries or what........
*******NEVERMIND!... hubby wouldn't listen to wifey and look @ second power panel... Wife wins. It was on the second power panel. Ugh........ men

IAQ.
Can control up to 4 stages of heat, 2 stages of cooling, it can slow down a VS ECM blower to aid in humidity control, and or do over cool to dehumidify, also can control a dehumidifier, and or a humidifier,along with being able to control a ERV/HRV. Only needs 3 wires to the stat. With an optional out door sensor it can be set to lock out aux heat until outdoor temps drop to X, and then it can stage that aux heat. It can also use remote indoor temp sensors to average the indoor temp and provide better indoor temp control.

I know I need a thermostat that controls my furnace and my A/C. It is a 4-wire setup, in addition to a common wire that isn't needed for my current thermostat. I don't have a heat pump or a dehumidifier or anything like that. I do want to be able to control the thermostat from my iphone over wifi in addition to be able to track energy savings by programming it. I believe I have a 90% efficient furnace but I don't really know any other specifics. I don't have a problem spending $250 on a thermostat if it is fairly easy to install.

Turns it DOWN TO 74??? and you are worried about energy? Im surprised you can even breathe in the AM. I set mine to 64 at night, and 68 in the daytime. I guess this is one of those different strokes for different folks deals. Where do you live? As temperature rises, pressure rises, so you might be pushing a lot of heat out of your house. When you both go to work you should drop it to like 62, then have it rise an hour before you return. 76 is nuts if you ask me. but then, Im a Finn

If looking at the ecobee, do NOT get the touchscreen version!

I've been looking at these. Are they compatible with a multi zone system? I can't seem to find that info anywhere. Or maybe I'm not understanding it, controls aren't my strongest point yet.

I find it very difficult to operate. The screen is very very touchy.
