    Manual control....not sure what you mean. He can put it into emergency heat with the flip of a switch.

    Are you saying he wants to control switching from heat pump to back up heat manually?

    There are a couple different ways to do that.

    And if you were a pro member, we could tell you in detail, how it can be done, in the pro tech forum.

    Might want to apply.

    every single heat-pump thermostat has a manual control for aux. heat. Thats what makes it a hp tstat, otherwise it would be just a straitcool tstat.

    Actually, no, not every one.

    Some HP stats have no provision for aux/emergency heat.

    And I think he may be asking for a way to easily flip a switch to lock out teh aux heat. Or turn it back on without going into set up every time.

    Ok I guess it is just my opinion that a true hp tstat has em.heat.

    Not all heat pumps have emergency heat, let alone aux heat.

    There are several thermostats that are listed for heat pumps, that have no aux/emergency heat.
    And those stats do not have an emergency heat provision.

    sounds like a strait-cool stat to me

    Some years ago.

    When I work at one company.
    We had a rash of calls from people. Not enough heat.

    Turned out, the one installer decided to save the company money. And used stats that had no aux heat.

    The Honeywell TH6110 is a conventional or heat pump thermostat.
    but has no aux or emergency heat provision.

    Same with several other models of Honeywell and other brands of thermostats.
