I went with the exact same setup and chose the Honeywell VisionPro IAQ. The main reasons were so I can control my humidifier from the thermostat instead of having to go downstairs to the furnace room to adjust it and the dehumidification on demand feature (which I have yet to use as the system was just installed last week). It also came with an outdoor temperature sensor that I believe allows the thermostat to intelligently determine when to turn the furnace or a/c on if you use setbacks.
The only drawback is that it is more complicated for the tech to install and possibly troubleshoot in the future.
I'm trying to decide between two honeywell thermostats the vision pro iq TH9421and the vision pro8000 TH8110U1003 I want the thermostat to be able to control the blower speed when the heat /air is off for air cleaning also be able to control how long /when the blower runs. I want to be able to control my humidifier from the thermostat. and set the humidity level in the summer when the ac is running. and generally get the most out the new system I have choosen . I went with the goodman gmv95 furnace and a goodman ssx14 a/c any insight would be greatly appreciated as their is a big difference in price between the two.
i def agree with beenthere that is the only stat we use WR rep gave me one of there stats i woke up to a 91 degree house and my cuz just called me frantic yesterday he turn his WR touchscreen stat off and the stuck on haven't had any luck with the WR touchscreens
I installed the WR Big Blue touchscreen with humidty control and I like it. My wife gets confused sometimes, but that is fairly normal with technical things. The auto feature is nice this tim of year (really a little earlier in the year when you may need a/c and Heat.(
I have pretty much the same system and the speed control works good.
I have one problem with the humidity readout, but that may be from the influence of the rather large hole in the wall left by the installer.
I have not yet hooked up the outside air temp. sensor. after that is done I will seal the wall and see if that helps.
If the outside unit is upgraded with the Copeland sensor it will report problems to the thermostat and turn on the service announcement.
All in all I like the Big Blue humidity control thermostat, but I understand prefering the Honeywell unit if you are familiar with that one.
The programming is a little hard to understand, but you could possibly rent a 10 year old to program it for you.
Of course your installer could set it up for you, but you need to make several choices as to how you want it to work in any case.
