Can you use a Honeywell thermostat with a heat pump?

Honeywell RTH5100B 1025 Deluxe Manual Thermostat The set temperature is maintained even when the thermostat restarts after a power outage.It is compatible with Works on all central heating and cooling systems including heat pumps without auxiliary heat source.

Does my heat pump use an O or B wire?

The O and B terminals are for heat pumps; the B terminal is used in conjunction with Rheem, Ruud, or any other manufacturer that energizes the reversing valve in the heat pumps heating mode.

Does a heat pump need a special thermostat?

Why do heat pumps require a particular type of thermostat thats different from an air conditioners? The reason is that heat pumps must control both heating and cooling. To switch from one to the other, the thermostat needs to signal the reversing valve to change the direction of the flow of refrigerant.

Can you use any thermostat with a heat pump?

Most smart thermostats are compatible with heat pump systems. What is worth noting is the installation process is a little tricker as there are additional wires to manage. Below we discuss the differences in wiring along with specific features to look out for in a heat pump thermostat.

At what temperature should auxiliary heat come on?

Auixiliary Heat will turn on automatically when heat can no longer efficiently transfer heat from the outside air to heat pump. This is when the outside is around 35-40 degrees and the indoor temperature is around three degrees cooler than the thermostat setting.

What is RC or RH on a thermostat?

Rh stands for Red-Heat and Rc stands for Red-Cool. If you only have a single red wire the jumper between Rh and Rc are required for some heating and cooling hybrid systems depending on your thermostat.

What wires go where on my thermostat?

Most thermostats have a Red wire that is the power wire that usually connects to R & RC terminals of the thermostat, a Green wire that energizes the Fan relay, connected to the “G” terminal on the thermostat, a Yellow wire that energizes the outdoor units contactor, (if you have air conditioning) and a white wire that

At what temperature do heat pumps become ineffective?

Heat pumps do not operate as efficiently when temperatures drop to between 25 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit for most systems. A heat pump works best when the temperature is above 40. Once outdoor temperatures drop to 40 degrees, heat pumps start losing efficiency, and they consume more energy to do their jobs.

Do you have to have a special thermostat for a heat pump?

Why do heat pumps require a particular type of thermostat thats different from an air conditioners? The reason is that heat pumps must control both heating and cooling. To switch from one to the other, the thermostat needs to signal the reversing valve to change the direction of the flow of refrigerant.

Is it normal for AUX heat to come on?

The temperature outside is below 35° Usually, once outdoor temperatures fall below 35°, a heat pump will struggle to keep your home warm and will automatically switch to AUX heat. If its an unusually cold Arizona day, its normal to see AUX heat on your thermostat.
