Temp-Stat is a low cost, non-adjustable, temporary construction thermostat preset to a given temperature. No more high fuel bills caused by construction workers turning up the thermostat and leaving it. Temp-Stat may be located on the wall in the same location as the permanent thermostat. I can also be installed in the return air plenum and used as a return air thermostat.
Input Voltage: 24VAC, 1A or line voltage when used with a relay kit
USE ONLY ON 24VOLT CONTROL CIRCUIT
MAXIMUM CONTROL CIRCUIT CURRENT 1.0 AMP

RECOMMENDATION WHEN USING THE
FURNACE FOR TEMPORARY HEAT
This temporary construction thermostat is preset to a non-adjustable temperature. Ideal for saving on energy costs during construction
- Patented and manufactured since 1997
- A capacitor absorbs arc when the contacts open and close. This eliminates the production of heat which can cause the equipment to short cycle.
- Plastic cover also prevents short cycling of equipment by slowing the thermostat response time down
- Bi-metal gold ash contacts
- Two tests done on the bi-metal component and sorted by temperature at the factory
- Two more tests done in-house to ensure temperature differential is accurate
- Approximately 1.5° temperature differential
How is Temp-Stat™ wired?
It is simply connected across the ‘W’ and ‘R’ (Heating Only) or ‘Y’ and ‘R’ (Cooling Only) terminals just like any heat or cool-only thermostat.
Is an s there any limitation on the thermostat wire run length?
No. Temp-Stat™ is an electronic sensor. It is a special bimetal thermostat with the same limitations of any other standard thermostat.
What type of control circuit should be used with Temp-Stat™?
Use it with only 24 Volt control circuits with a maximum current of 1.0 Amp. Use a relay kit (CS-RY-115 or CS-RY-220) if controlling a line voltage circuit.
How is Temp-Stat™ wired for a heat pump?
Typically, the resistance heat is operated during construction. Therefore, Temp-Stat™ would be wired across ‘W’ and ‘R’. Depending on the equipment, a jumper may be required between ‘W’ and ‘G’ at the air handler to control the fan. However, if the compressor is to be used for temporary heat, simply wire across ‘Y’ and ‘R’ providing the reversing valve is energized on a call for cooling.
Can a switch be used in series with Temp-Stat™ to turn the furnace on and off?
Yes. The easiest method is to use the “SSU” switch that is almost always installed at the side of the furnace to turn it on and off.
Can a Temp-Stat™ be used for cooling applications?
Yes. A cooling version (CL-XX) must be used because it makes on rise in temperature. If the cooling unit does not have short cycle protection, it is recommended that a 2-wire short cycle timer be installed.
What is the expected life of a Temp-Stat™?
The same as any other standard thermostat.
Is Temp-Stat™ affected by heat, moisture or vibration?
Heat and moisture do not affect Temp-Stat™. However, vibration could cause it to work improperly. It is recommended that it not be mounted on any vibrating surface.
