Master/slave thermostat recommendation


I am looking for a recommendation on a master and slave programmable thermostat combination. The master thermostat is a 6-wire connection and controls my bedroom level. The slave thermostat is a 3-wire connection and controls our upper loft level. Each level is a separate zone. I have a gas furnace and air conditioner, no heat pump. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Master/slave thermostat recommendation


I would recommend the Edge Stat from Carrier. The nice thing about this stat, is that it is a multifunction stat that only uses 2 wires. This will give you the option to upgrade your system down the road, such as in a hybrid heat set up.

Its a nice stat. But a bit over kill for a master/slave zone system.
