Honeywell IAQ Fan options
I have one for you all.
I have a Honeywell IAQ t-stat (largely because of this forum), hooked to a Trane XL15i with a VS AH.
I've been doing some home remodeling, and in the process, creating lots of dust. To prevent the filter from being completely clogged with drywall/plaster dust, I've been having to flip the breaker to the HP and AH to keep the fan from running, because on the tstat, all I can do is set the fan to "auto/on", "on", and "circ". Is there a reason I can't set it to "off"? I can turn the heating/cooling off... but the fan has no option to do this (and doesn't turn off with the heating/cooling). Or am I just stuck flipping the breaker? It would be nice to be able to turn the fan off also in the cases of having a bunch of windows open, so I'm not (in essence) filtering the outdoors.
with the fan in the auto position and system off nothing should run.
call back whoever set it up.
This is correct.

As above. Make sure the fan is not set to "on", or "circ" in any of the wake, leave, return, sleep programs. Then set system to off, and fan to auto.
but, if I set the fan to auto, doesn't that make it not run unless the heat/cool is on? I'd prefer to have it run all the time unless I don't want it on. That's part of the whole VS AH, and having it run at low speed all the time to keep the house temp equalized, etc.
Will auto do that? Or can I not have my cake yadda yadda.
check your program as the others have stated. i think that was one of the quirks i heard about but forgot.......
if the fan is programmed to be on during certain time periods it will run even if system is set to off.
change the fan progam for now then you can change it back after your project.
The fan auto, on, and circ settings, are independant of the system settings.
If you have a wake, leave, return, sleep program that has the fan set to on or circ. It will run the fan irreguardless of what setting you have the system to, or what you have the manual fan control set to.
