Programmable thermostat- intermittent air circ.

Posted by dredpir8 (My Page) on

Hi All,

I am looking for a thermostat that I can program to turn on the fan intermittently in the middle of the night regardless of temperature.

Our room gets stuffy around 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning even if it doesn't get hot. I'd love to be able to program in something like "if nothing has run for 1 hour, then run the fan for 15 minutes."

Are there any thermostats with that level of programmatic control?

Thanks in advance,
T

Honeywell VisionPro, Venstar ColorTouch, and numerous others have this feature.

Thanks, I'll check them out.

If the evaporator has any water left on it or in the pan you will make things even stuffier, and simply running the fan dumps the motor heat into the air in many systems.
