Basic Features and Characteristics
Even without the INSTEON enabled Thermostat Adapter, the Venstar T1800 Thermostat already has many features built in. Of course, you’ll save energy by running your heater and air conditioning only when you're at home. For example, program the heater to turn on half an hour before you normally arrive home or run the air conditioning only when necessary to keep the pets cool while you're at work. The Venstar T1800 Thermostat is compatible with both heat/cool and heat pump and it will control up to three heat stages as well as two cooling stages. And . . . just because you've set up your system doesn't mean you can't adjust the temperature manually whenever you want to.
The Venstar thermostats require power to function. If you do not have a "common" wire running to your thermostat from your heating/cooling equipment, you may need to run a new wire. The Add-A-Wire accessory can usually solve the power needed problem. Check with your HVAC expert if you have questions about its applicability to your situation.
