Short story: How to add a Skuttle humidier (24volt manual control) to a new Carrier heat pump system?
Long story: We replaced an old oil heat/AC system with a new Carrier HP system with electric back-heat. The old furnace had a switched 120volt outlet that would turn on when furnace turned on. We used to plug in 120V-to-24V transformer and run power to a standard 24VAC humidistat (http://www.skuttle.com/pdfs/humidistat_install.pdf), which controlled a basic flow-through, under-duct humidifier (http://www.skuttle.com/underduct.html).
New Carrier system setup:
Outdoor unit = 25HCB6
Indoor unit = FV4CN
Thermostat = TP-PRH01-A (has LCD display and a indoor unit side control board)
I noticed that thermostat has controls for humidifier, can these be used to control Skuttle. If not, is there a switched 24volt output that could power humidistat on the indoor unit end of the thermostat. Of course I only want humidifier to run when heat is on.
I hope someone already did this.
