I live in Colorado, and the standard summer weather pattern is that it gets
hot in the daytime (90s) but in the evening generally drops into the 60s.
What I want to create, is a system that detects ...
1) I'm in Cooling mode (not Heating)
2) The outside temperature is lower than the desired inside temperature
3) The actual inside temperature is higher than the desired inside
When that happens, I want the system to turn off the AC and open a damper to
bring in outside air. The damper would have to seal tightly enough that it
didn't let in too much cold air in the winter.
Any suggestions for how to do this without spending too much money? It
seems like I need...
1) electronic damper
2) control system smart enough to perform normal thermostat-type functions,
plus this extra stuff.
I'm new to this, so don't worry about insulting me by telling me things that
are normally considered obvious (grin).
