Main Question or Discussion Point
I am trying to control a 110V fan with a low voltage thermostat. I am pretty new to electrical theory... I would like a basic description of what I need and how to properly wire it. Thanks!
When you wire a line votage thermostat, you wire it as in place of a wall switch.I don't think you want to put line voltage on your temp. control wires. As Averagesupernova says; use a "plain old relay" ...that can be mounted on the fan with the other power devices.
Good point."When you wire a line votage thermostat, you wire it as in place of a wall switch."
I wanted to make sure that the OP didn't try to wire line voltage to his existing thermostat.
