I would go with the honeywell setup. It's not something you can pick up at HD, but at a local hvac supply house. I don't know your knowlge of wiring controls, but in general, it would be best to get a hvac guy to install it. If done incorrectly, a lot of time can be wasted.

Good luck

Thanks for the info. I was looking at a Honeywell VisionPRO® IAQ Thermostat would this work for my setup? Its for my own house but i will probably have it professional installed.

You have a separate heat pump, from the oil furnace?

As in the heat pump has its own air handler.

You'll need someone that knows how to add relays to use the Honeywell IAQ,. or any of the Vision pro models.

Granted, it's been two months since that post, and I totally misread that. I was under the impression that it was one air handler. I still think there is one air handler. I can't imagine two air handlers with one duct system. But, it does say two seperate t-stats. I hope the coil is in the return...:)

I wonder how they set it up originally.
