    Thermostat for heat pump with gas backup

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a heat pump with gas backup? Our thermostat isn't working properly, we had a guy come look at our furnace and he messed around with stuff and now the furnace will runa dn won't shut off. It will be 100 degrees in our house and we have to manually turn off the furnace because it isn't controlled by the thermostat anymore. So we are assuming it's the thermostat or the guy that looked at it didn't hook something back up right. We need an upgrade anyway so we are just going to replace the thermostat and need some advice...Thanks!

    The Honeywell IAQ is a good dual fuel thermostat.
    Call the guy back and have him fix what he messed up.(Or a company)
    Then while he's there, he can sell and install an IAQ stat for you. Might take a little extra time for him to redo all the wiring. Depends on the dual fuel control you already have.
    After all, you don't want someone that doesn't understand controls burning out several hundred dollars of controls because they don't know how to wire 4 devices up in series parallel.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Call and ask him if he's missing a jumper wire.
