Honeywell Prestige 2.0 IAQ - improvements?
Anybody want to comment on improvements on the Honeywell Prestige 2.0 IAQ? I see it has some new features for delta-t diagnostics and alerts. It also appears to have some new staging control options for elapsed time and temperaure differential (the lack of which seems to be a common complaint on HW stats). Also a new wireless indoor sensor. Is there anything else significant?
You can change the background colors and have either clouds or no clouds and save these settings for different users. Backlight control seems to be a little bit better too.
For dual-fuel or heat pump, I wonder if they changed the display to show when AUX is on?
My prestige HD 1.0 shows when auxilary is on for my dual fuel system.

Energy efficient and economical to operate are not synonyms
I think between the Prestige IAQ, VisionPro IAQ, and other VisionPro models, you could cover any installation, and cost target. I'm not a pro, but that's the way I see it.

The 2.0 also now has the option of ground source heat pump under the system selection! We now use this stat on all geo jobs.

The ONE bad thing about the IAQ, is it can be "complex" for those "older" people. Some people want efficiency, but they want to turn the dial, and nothing fancy.
So, when honeywell comes out with the "touchscreen dial" in the installer set up (hint hint honeywell, get it done son.) then, it will be unstoppable.

"Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."
"Just get it done son."
I disagree I sell the prestige to a lot of older customers because we can set it once and forget it. And if they change the settings nothing gets messed up, it goes right back to the schedule.
