I put a vision pro 3 stage heat/2 stage cool in my father in-law house after he had a new air handler and heat pump installed .I replaced a white rodgers 2 stage heat/1 stage cool stat.My question is when I hooked it up the directions made it seem like the HP would go on aux heat and the heat strips would go on the EM heat.My question is having the wire on the o/b terminal, will it make the HP run in heating mode with out havingthe heat pump wired to aux heat. .Because I would think if they are saying 3 stages of heat then the heat pump would run off of the o/b terminal and 2nd stage off the aux and 3rd stage off the em.I talked to honeywell about it and they said the heat strips are jumpered together off of the 3 stage em heat.So i just want a opinion on if this seems right.
Look at the book for the air handler, then match the wire colors on the unit, to what the air handler book states. Then draw a schematic of both the thermo & air handler & match wires to correct terminals. This is why manufacturers have directions, and why HVAC techs are paid to repair home owner foul ups.
