What should I set a thermostat’s Reversing Valve to?
This thermostat configuration is only settable for thermostats whos System Type is set to Heat Pump.
This configuration can be found in the Pelican Web-App > Admin > Thermostat Configuration > ‘select any thermostat‘ > System Settings > System Type.
A reversing valve a type of valve and is a component in a heat pump HVAC unit. It is used to change the direction of refrigerant flow. By reversing the flow of refrigerant, the heat pump’s refrigeration cycle is changed from cooling to heating or vice versa. This allows a facility to be heated and cooled by a single piece of equipment, by the same means, and with the same hardware.
Configuration Options and their meanings:
Cooling On: The thermostat will enable the Reversing Valve during a cooling cycle. This is also know as the “B” option/position.
Heating On: The thermostat will enable the Reversing Valve during a heating cycle. This is also know as the “O” option/position.
Note: Pelican thermostat’s always uses (W) as the Reversing valve output.
Note on some Heat Pump Units
Some Heat Pump units respond to Conventional thermostat inputs. Review your Heat Pump’s installation guide for the correct configurations.
