Answer This Question

A:  Yes, this thermostat will work in a commercial building.

by|May 5, 2023

    A:  It's all depend upon what kind of commercial use. If the commercial use is office environment then yes it can be used. Thermostat is controllable through cloud and can be controlled from anywhere.

    by|May 5, 2023

      A:  Yes it will as long as it receives a fair to strong WiFi signal.

      by|May 5, 2023

        A:  As long as the wiring is suitable, I don't see why it wouldn't work....

        by|May 5, 2023

        A:  There needs to be more information on a commercial building. Mainly, what is the thermostat going to replace? One, several? Type of heating/cooling system, etc. Sorry, but unless a layout is presented it is wise to ask a professional.

        Q:We have a client with a Rheem RGFD-09EZCMS Modulating 90 Plus Gas Furnace who wants a WiFi thermostat. The client has other systems using wifi with the Honeywell Redlink and loves it but wants to keep the modulating furnace function while using the Honeywell Redlink app. Does Honeywell make a wifi thermostat that is compatible with the Rheem modulation function?

          Answer This Question

          A:  Yes I installed it myself. Its was easy.

          by|May 5, 2023

          A:  We installed it.

          by|May 5, 2023

            A:  If you're handy it's a fairly straightforward installation if you have the correct amount of wires in your furnace harness. My original did not so I had to run a new one. Was simple, just more time consuming.

            by|May 5, 2023

              A:  I installed it myself. Took about 15 minutes and followed provided directions. I was replacing another programmable thermostat, so no problems.

              by|May 5, 2023

                A:  No, I installed it myself. The instructions were adaquate and their tech support was excellent, so together we accomplished it without serious issues.

                  A:  Yes! We integrated it seemlessly. Love the voice adjustments when we are relaxing in other parts of the house. The app also works great.

                  by|May 5, 2023

                    A:  Yes, via the Honeywell Total Connect Comfort account that you sign up for when you set up the thermostat.

                    by|May 5, 2023

                      A:  Yes! Easy and fast integration.

                      by|May 5, 2023

                        A:  Yes, this particular device works with Google Home.

                        by|May 5, 2023

                        A:  I can tell you it works with Alexa through the Wink Hub. I have not spent much time exploring the depths of what can be controlled (probably not much), but I can say "Alexa, set thermostat to 72 degrees" and it does work. I would look for a similar chain that might work: Google Home -> Wink/SmartThings -> Thermostat. I do not believe it works directly with Alexa.

                        by|May 5, 2023

                          A:  My son says yes, however I haven’t taken that step yet. And I also have a Google Home. I must look into it. But I have to say I really like this thermostat. It has reduced my electric bills immensely and I highly recommend it.

                            Q:When you walk into the house does it sense your home and adjust the heat accordingly?

                            A:  No. It’s not that smart. But you can connect it to Amazon Alexa and “tell” it to turn on when you come home. Or, program it to turn on the time you expect to arrive. I come home same time every day so setting it works. for me well. If I’m coming home early or late, I adjust it on the appointment my phone. As long as it is connected to WiFi you can control it from anywhere at anytime even while out of town. Hope that helps!

                            by|May 5, 2023

                              A:  No this thermostat does not have that capability. The scheduling feature does allow for you to set the times of day and temperatures based on known times that you are in or out of the home ie. out for work in the morning and back in the evening. The thermostat can also be connected to a smart home system, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and maybe others where it can be set up to turn on of off or adjust the temperature up or down via voice commands. It works with my Amazon Echo.

                                            A:  As with anything dealing with electricity, turn of the breakers to those units. In this case both to the air handler and the outside compressor.

                                              A:  Yes, definitely. Whenever installing something electrical you should always turn it off.

                                              by|May 5, 2023

                                              A:  If you have a heat pump or a furnace with AC attached there should be a turnoff switch next to the furnace or a turnoff breaker in your electrical box. Turn the appropriate one off when doing the installation.

                                                A:  Always a good idea. Since you asked the question, it would appear that the answer is definitely YES.
