Its not a line voltage stat. it only works on forced air. You can ask your HVAC contractor to rig up some relays to make it work with hydronics i.e. radiant etc.

Youtube. Seriously. Save yourself the money. I've fixed my fridge and oven in the last few months with cheap, easy to order parts and some youtube videos for instructions. Some things need a professional - this is not really one of them.

My ac is blowing cold air but it's coming out so weak it feels like someone is waving a paper fan. I changed the filter a few days ago which fixed it then but now it's back to being very weak and I'm not sure how long the normal operation lasted after changing the filter since it was cold outside the past two days.

Any suggestions?  Thanks
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

How long was it before you changed the filter before this most recent time? It's possible you need to get your coils cleaned.

Thanks, I had a guy come and he said my compressor is dead  :-\

Now the question is do I go with a split or central? It's for a separate small zone so I don't need a massive unit to cool a whole house.

Go with central and Arzel zoning. Will be cheaper and less maintenance headaches in the long run.

Was your coil frozen?

I think he is talking in laymen's terms. If the compressor burns out the fan should still run and still get good airflow. If the compress fails the coil can freeze up and stop airflow. I am not a HVAC tech so hopefully one will chime in.

My unit keeps tripping the breaker immediately after turning on. Had a hvac repair guy look at it and he said the compressor is shot and i need a knew unit.  Can anyone chime in if this makes sense?
