    power outages cause the thermostat to require configuation...media
    type, humidifier type, etc. If this is not done, the hvac does not
    come on. It just waits for someone to configure the thermostat. The
    tstat does not take a battery. Any ideas?

  2. Sounds like a straight forward job for a HVAC service
    company.

    Plug the air handler/furnace into an UPS with external batteries, the APC
    SUA2200XL would work nicely. When the power fails turn off the system ASAP
    to save the battery life then turn it back on afterwards when power is
    restored. This means you still have to fiddle with the T-stat but at least
    it is just "flipping a switch" instead of reprogramming it.

    Some of the serial controlled controls DO NOT have batteries, they have an
    E-Prom and memory chips that are supposed to remember what all the settings
    are. If it goes to default settings when power is lost, there is an issue
    with either the control itself or one of the other mother baords in the
    system. There is a reason I don't install new systems using the serial
    control wiring.

    Most of them are using pin and socket type connector strips between the
    wall plate and control head.

    They do on the cheap ones folks get from the big box stores, but not on the
    Honeywell controls that I use.

    I thought she said she could only swallow if it was hard.

    I thought about that but wondered if the control board would go into lockout
    mode when nothing responded to its commands, IE the pressure switch on the
    draft inducer. If it did it requires a power cycle of the board and then
    you are back at square 1.
