    Installed a couple of these in a lake home for customer. I had a hard time navigating the screen with my big fingers. Had to use a pen to hit the small buttons. IMHO screen needs to be twice as big.

    I agree with 2nu2no 5 kw is not nearly enough backup heat. I would go with 15Kw on a 4 ton and stage it off.
