I have lived all over florida before. It looks like you have a heat pump or electric heat, but I think it's a heat pump [reverse cycle a/c] because of the jumper wire between X2 and W and the wire on O terminal. Does the existing thermostat have an emerg heat switch? Can you tell us about the new thermostat? For example the brand and model #?

I looked it up at the LUX website. I cannot be used for multistage heat pumps. Can I see a pic of the part you removed from the wall [the piece with the glass mercury bulbs] and also a pic of the rest of the device on the wall? Thanks. I don't think you'll be able to use that Lux thermostat.

That t-stat will not work with your system.. YOu'll need a multi stage t-stat like Honeywell RTH7500, or RTH7600.

Why change of t-stat?

The Honeywell's will work.

How much of a temp change are you plan on setting up/down with the new t-stat?

Looks good. You can dispense with tan, just tape it off. Install the black jumper wire from W2 to E. Good job on getting the blue wire in the right place, that's the one that causes problems on Trane units.

ok hooked up exactly like that and blowing hot air (not cold but luke warm) I see some settings in the manual about selecting right heat pump type...seen here:

http://customer.honeywell.com/techli.../69-2104ES.pdf

Ok, for the system set up.

120 to 150 pretty easy to figure that out.

170 to 7
180 to 1 (I'm guessing you have electric back up?)
190 to 0 (If you are getting heat in the vent on cool mode, then change it to 1)
240 to 3
270 to 3
300 up 0
320 to 0
330 to 2
500 to 2
530 to 1
640 to 12
