I recently installed two seperate Digital thermostats (8050 and 8022c RiteTemp). I installed the first 1 month ago in Zone one, downstairs. I then install the 2nd (the 8022c) two days ago upstairs in zone 2. Since the 2nd thermostat has been installed the heat will not kick on, in the whole house, until we run the hotwater. For example I came home tonight with thermostats having been set to 65 degrees for the day, but the temperature was 56! I checked the connections, jumped the wires, made sure the units where on automatic, but no heat. I then put the ran the hot water at the kitchen sink, and the heat kicked on. The problem is, as soon as the heat hits what the thermostat is set at it will shut off and won't come back on until the hotwater is run. So, in the morning we will wake up to 58 degrees. Any advice would be priceless!!!

Did you properly integrate the wiring of both thermostats?

Suspect you have a Hot Water System rather than Hot Air (can't think of why else the hot water heater would affect things)

If so determine if you have motor controlled valves or solenoid valves.

In either case check your wiring against Rite Temp's diagrams for zoned systems at
