Though you can install this without the Equipment Interface Module (EIM), I decided to wait, get the EIM, and then do the full installation. The first EIM I ordered was the wrong one, so you have to be careful about that. The EIM is installed next to your equipment, you run almost all the wires from your devices to the EIM and just a two-wire thermostat wire (for power) to the thermostat itself. Once powered up, the EIM, the thermostat, the outdoor remote, and the handheld remote can all start talking with each other over the air and things are swell from that point on.
I have a forced hot air, oil furnace, an air conditioner, and a powered bypass humidifier. I also got the optional return and supply air temperature sensors. Everything wires into the EIM: the humidifier can use one of three universal terminal pairs. When you setup the thermostat for the first time, you tell the thermostat what you have and what's wired to what ports on the EIM.
I did run into some quirks. When I opened up my furnace to find the power supply, I didn't realize the low voltage thermostat power is actually AC, not DC. I was carefully (I thought) testing everything as I went and ended up confused when I didn't read the voltages correctly on my meter. This was a rookie error. A professional installer would have known immediately that 24 volt AC power is used.
You are given the option of having the thermostat control the humidifier and run it even when the heat is not on.Read more ›
This thermostat is no harder to install than the trendy Nest as long as you have a Common (C) wire. I fished a C wire from my furnace when I installed the Climatouch a few years ago. If you don't have a C wire you can use your fan wire (G) in place of it, but you will lose the ability to run your furnace fan without the heat or cool being on. Substituting the wire requires switching the (G) wire at the furnace from the (G) terminal to the (C) terminal and connecting the (G) wire at the thermostat to (C) leaving both (G) terminals empty.
The temperature stays more consistent in my house and while I'm sleeping I can keep my once cold bedroom a consistent temperature with the remote. I set the thermostat the use my A/C to dehumidify. If the humidity goes above my setting of 45% it will run the A/C up to a degree cooler to lower the humidity. You can set it to run it more than a degree cooler to reach your target humidity, but you will have to have a larger deadband between heat and cool if you use the auto changeover feauture. Now here is where there is an issue.Read more ›

Although they are both visually identical, they are actually not the same. In the CTK03, you don't need the EIM as the brain. The CTK03 thermostat itself contains THE BRAIN. Read morePublished on August 16, 2013 by CK
