thermostat controled a/c now!
if anyone was like me and looking for a way to make their a/c units work off a thermostat. I found this mod on another site and boy did it work. it cost me around $35 and about two hours but was interrupted by life during the two hours!
The simple explanation is you replace the existing furnace-only thermostat with the new one and install a relay controlled by the thermostat that acts as a switch on the A/C power line. To operate you leave the A/C turned on, with A/C thermostat turned up to maximum cooling. The new thermostat and relay then control it, and turn the A/C on and off using the setting on the new thermostat. As a bonus, the propane furnace is also now controlled by a digital thermostat.
