    Heat/Em. Heat/Aux Heat/W2 question....

    If the title wasn't confusing enough, this post might be

    American Standard HP system with a propane gas back up 90+% furnace.

    Honeywell Vision Pro 8000 3/heat 2/cool T-stat

    I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the Y1 signal to drop out if and when the back up heat is called for.

    I was told that I could avoid the fossil fuel kit by using the VP8000 stat.

    Any advice would help.

    Are you using a outdoor temp sensor?

    No, and I see in the installers guide that you need a OA sensor stat to allow the t-stat to act as the fossil fuel kit. But how is that going to allow Y1 to drop out on a call for back up heat? It reads like it is more of a compressor lock out in low OA temps.

    You will lose the call on Y1 if the temp. drops below the setup point (od sensor) and W1 will call turning on the furnace

    Honeywell doesn't have the greatest install instructions, when its comes to their thermostats.

    However.

    actually that information is incorrect

    when the system goes into defrost, the furnace and heat pump will run at the same time

    ofcourse, it must be hooked up properly for that to happen!

    and this is why an experienced pro should hook it up
