Setup advice--Ecobee + Mitsubishi mini-split
Hello: Have a Flair puck/Ecobee thermostat/Mitsubishi minisplit.
Our home is unusual because it's built onto the side of a hill, and you enter on the top floor, which is the main living area. Then there are two flights of stairs going down to bedrooms, office, etc.
The top floor gets a lot of sun, and gets very hot during some months, and we bought a minisplit heat pump to cool the space during those times.
We don't have any other cooling in the house, but if the thermostat is set to "Cool" it activates a fan that just moves air around.
What I want to do is set up the Flair/Eccobee so that it will trigger the minisplit cooling function when the room reaches, say, 76F, but i don't want the system to trigger the fan.
I already successfully paired the Flair with the minisplit.
Any advice for a good setup here? Is there any way to configure the thermostat so that fan function is never activated?
Hi Pete F.,
Thanks for writing in!
If you set up the Flair Puck to control your Mitsubishi mini split to Flair you can configure your mini split to kick on at whatever temperature you desire and cool that upper floor. Additionally, for this to work, you don't need to add the ecobee to Flair.
Can you give us a little information on what the ecobee is controlling in your home? Is it controlling a Central furnace that heats the home?
You asked if there was a way to configure the thermostat so that the fan function is never activated. I think if you set your thermostat to Heat mode and leave it there then that should prevent it from ever being in Cool mode and activating the fan.
