Question about Heating & Cooling
I guess you have not had the satisfactory answer you has been seeking since I been seeing this question all day.It is not surprising.
What you have is a heat pump.
It uses a compressor to heat and cool
This isnot an ordinary system. the unit uses a solenoid to reverse the flow of freon and needs a defrost mode, plus it requires backup heat. AND all of the wiring config ain't the same my nizzle.
This is just my take on it from what i know. I sold thermostats before i retired. heat pumps need specialty thermostats to not only cover the reversing valve but the back up heat and defrost features as well. that is why you only use the recommended wall thermostat for a designed heat pump. I thank you.

The Rite Temp thermostat can be wired many in ways according to your unit's needs, I would like to send you an installation guide showing the different configurations, then you tell me which and how many wires come from the heat pump and we go from there. For this I need an email address to send it to. Thanks
