I have a heat pump made by International Comfort Products Corp. The
"brand" tag has been removed. The model is TCH036AKC1.
I have installed a programmable thermostat and don't know which
setting to use:
*Heat Pump: single-stage heat pump (no backup or auxiliary heat)
*Multi-stage heat pump: heat pump with backup or auxiliary heating
Ideas on which option to choose? Thanks!!!
How would we know??? You can't even tell us what kind of, or even IF you
have back-up heat. We can't *see* it from here.
Your local, competent, licensed, insured, professionally trained, HVAC
technician can tell you exactly what you have and will probably have the
correct thermostat for your system on his/her truck. While the tech is
there, you may want to have the system checked and serviced.
Whoa, chill out HVAC-man.
You're right I can't tell you if I have back-up heat. THAT WAS MY
You're right you can't *see* it from here. But I can. So, what would
I look for??? [Never mind, please don't answer. Clearly, one must go
through a rigorous HVAC training regimen and learn the secret
handshake before such knowledge can be conferred.]
I already have the correct thermostat for "my system". The thermostat
works for many systems--it is a Honeywell RTH7000 series. I just
don't know which setting I need to put it on.
Sorry I asked.
It has nothing to do with a "secret handshake" or any other such bullshit.
Nobody can tell you what setting to put it on without knowing what the
back-up heat is. Is it gas?? is it electric?? Does it even *HAVE* any
back-up heat?? You have only given us HALF of the needed information to give
you what you want. Get it???
