I have an Amana heat pump system for cooling and heating and I'd like to disable the aux heat. I frequently set the Honeywell TH8000 from 58 to 61 degrees at random times and to keep the aux heat from kicking in I have to setup the thermostat up 1 degree at a time. I'd like to just set it 3 degrees higher to 61 and let the heat pump raise the temp without the aux heat.
Looking in the TH8000 setup, 0170 "System type" is set to:
7 2 heat/1 cool heat pump (with aux. heat)
If I changed it to:
2 1 heat/1 cool heat pump (no aux. heat)
Would this be harmful to the system hardware? I know if it dropped to -10 (or some other cold number) the heat pump might not be able to heat that much but I could set the System type back to 7 in a pinch. I just don't want to hurt the heat pump, air handler, or thermostat by changing the system type.
Thanks in advance,
