NOTE: The New NCM300 allows the user to install Heat Pump thermostats on all zones. This allows the user to over-
ride the W2 Timer and energize the auxiliary heat via thermostatic demand! You may still use regular Heat/Cool type
thermostats with a Heat Pump system and use the W2 Timer to energize the auxiliary heat. Doing so may save more
energy. This new design simplifies the thermostat selection process and allows the installer to easily adapt the
NCM300 to most residential applications.
