Thermostat Question


One more question and I will leave you guys alone.

Will either of these stage the aux heat as described below:

Call for stage one (heat pump) if needed call for stage two (first stage if resistance heat) also if needed call for stage three (second stage if resistance heat).

No, they won't. they can't control 2 stages of aux heat. The first one you linked to earlier can though.

Thermostat Question


Here is the diagram. I drew it up real quick. The diagram assumes that w1,2 and 3 are not energized in em heat. I do recommend em heat. My heat only fails when im working out of town, and my wife is an angry technician..

Okay..let's try this again..
Remember..a guy that was drinking jack daniels made this..electrocution is your responsibility.
But in all seriousness. If yu do use this pay close attention to your connections and how many amps will be pulled through that connection. Each strip will draw approx 17-20 amps. If you put 2 together that's 34-40, which would require 6ga wire. Don't burn the house down to save a few bucks.
