We are building a house next year and the location does not have gas available. We want to avoid LP or oil heating. So we are installing A pellet boiler, electric heat pump and electric heating elements as a back up.
Stage 1 Heat pump
Stage 2 Hydronic/Pellet boiler
Stage 3 Electric heat - Emergency heat
What I am looking for is a thermostat that will allow me to program each Heat stage individually or to program the delay between each stage. The main reason for this is to avoid using stage 3 as much as possible because electric is expensive.
If I cannot find thermostats that allow this to be programmed I will probable resort to using delay on make relays. Would just be easier to have thermostat that is very friendly to programming options.
