Goodman Janitrol HPT 18-60 Thermostat Replacing with a Honeywell TH8320WF1029

This is my current Thermostat is a Janitrol HPT-18-60

What should the new wiring on the Honeywell 8320 look like?

And this is it's current wiring:




I'm wanting to replace it with a Honeywell TH8320 (TH8320WF1029 to be exact) It's suppose to support 3 heat stages with the heatpump but I don't see how. There is not both an Emergency and W2 that can be used with a heatpump. It seems like W2 will need to go with the E/AUX terminal as well as the Emergency heat. Is there an issue with doing this? I'm worried it may run my electrical bill up. Are these both the same electric strips?

Yes you are right that's the way it needs to be wired.

Thanks. I checked it with a multimeter and the E and W2 wire appear to be connected together. So I assume they are in the air handler and control the same thing.

Thanks

Welcome to the forums.

Yes... that is a typical setup.

You don't waste money with electric heat. Every dollar you spend you get in heat.

Let's say you did have two stages of electric heat. If you were heating with one stage... it would take a certain amount of time to heat.

If you were heating with both stages at once..... it would consume twice the power but heat in half the time.
