That Hunter t-stat will not work with your system. You need a real t-stat like Honeywell, or RiteTemp from Home Depot. Hunter should only stay with fans, not t-stat, and I've seen many tech saying Hunter t-stat don't hold up.

Honeywell RTH7500 or RTH7600 will work with your system. What's wrong with the old t-stat?
