The contractor quoting a Luxaire Acclimate Series 97+% says we can use any regular thermostat but I read somewhere that a communicating thermostat is required for a fully modulating furnace. I am not sure if he knows fully about these mod units but says he has installed them in the past.
Please tell what thermostat to go with, will a regular programmable thermostat be good enough of does it need a higher end one? If it does need a higher end one, does it come with the furnace or is an additional expense. Luxaire website does not give any detais of a compatible thermostat.
