I'm a new home owner and fresh on the HVAC bandwagon so please bear with me if I'm not hip on the lingo just yet.
With that in mind I was hoping to get a little feedback about my house T-Stat system and my planned retro-fit for it to the Honeywell IAQ system.
I currently have a standard Honeywell TH6110 Thermostat, standard gas furnace, AC, and a VanEE 90H Air Exchanger system that runs on a separate control. My long term goal was to add a Humidifier in the furnace and with conventional t-stats it means I need to get more wires up to my T-stat if I want to be able to control it (additionally I need a t-stat with humidity control).
This brings me to the IAQ system. Since I only have four wires run up to my existing thermostat I was looking at implemeting the IAQ since then the EIM would be in the basement right near any future devices I intend to add. If I understand the IAQ correctly I only need three wires which get used for power and communication to the EIM. Is that correct?
Ideally I would really like to add the the VanEE 90H into the system as well so that I can have everything run off of the IAQ Stat. I know the IAQ does have a ventillation capability but I was hoping to find out if anyone has any experience with connecting a VanEE system to the IAQ's and if it would be possible to cut out the VanEE control module completely if I added an outside temp sensor as well. They could co-exist I suppose but I'd remove it if I could.
Here is a link to the VanEE unit I have:
I have one Bronze Control and three of the 20-minute timers. I would like to keep the existing timers but remove the Bronze Control from the system and just use the IAQ for ventillation.
Thanks in advance for any help.
