I need a new thermostat that is compatible with a 1985 York

Customer Question

Hello, I need a new thermostat that is compatible with a 1985 York air handler.
Model Number N2AHD06A06A. Can you recommend a Honeywell thermostat that is compatible. We have heat pumps.
We replaced the analog York thermostat with a Honeywell RTH7600 but cannot get the EM Heat to work.

Hello,

did you program in menu for heat pump with backup heat? and is there a wire on E terminal

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I did not install it. And will have to check but should this model work with that air handler
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 10 months ago.

yes it will.

This thermostat just needs to be "told" what it is controlling and in the set up menu tell it that it is a heat pump with back up heat.

But short story is ...yes...this thermostat, installed correctly and programmed correctly will work fine.
