I have a property where two identical furnaces work in tandem for the whole system. Currently they are controlled by two identical thermostats with identical programming - but of course they are never perfectly in sync, and sometimes wander pretty far off. Also, the thermostats are in the basement of the building with the furnaces, unacceptable. I am thinking of using a wireless thermostat that can send to two base receivers, one for each furnace. Would this work? I am specifically looking at the Venstar T1100RF but haven't been able to find a definitive answer to my question.
wireless tstats are like garage door openers, they have to be specific to each other otherwise you could open your neighbors garage. one tstat per receiver or it could run wild/overheat etc etc and be dangerous. UL would not allow that for safety and liability reasons and issues. I installed a Honeywell Red link wireless 3 yrs ago on a job and have not had problems with it. I would stay with a major reputable brand when it comes to that technology.
