DFK Duel Fuel Kit

Smart KitT is the most versatile and easy-to-install dual fuel kit on the market. Smart KitT is compatible with single and multi-stage heat pumps. The Smart KitT includes snap track and double-back tape for convenient installation, along
with "Quiet" relay technology, LED auxiliary heat indication, and easy-to-read, screw terminals. Smart KitT includes an adjustable outdoor thermostat to provide compressor lockout. An optional adjustable discharge air sensor is also available to temper the air during defrost cycle. Smart KitT works with both O and B heat pump reversing valves and has a five (5) year warranty.

Smart Kit - Dual Fuel Kit
Sequence of Operation in Heating

OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE ABOVE OUTDOOR THERMOSTAT SETPOINT
2 Heat / 1 Cool
When the space thermostat calls for heating and the outside temperature is above the setpoint of the outdoor thermostat, the heat pump will operate as first stage heat. If there is a call for second stage heat, or if the thermostat is placed in the emergency heat mode, the Smart KitT will automatically terminate the heat pump operation and start the furnace.

3 Heat / 2 Cool
When the space thermostat calls for heating and the outside temperature is above the setpoint of the outdoor thermostat, the heat pump will operate as first stage heat. If there is a call for second stage heat, the second stage compressor will be energized. If there is a call for third stage heat, or if the thermostat is placed in the emergency heat mode, the Smart KitT will automatically terminate heat pump operation and start the furnace.

OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE BELOW OUTDOOR THERMOSTAT SETPOINT
When the space thermostat calls for heating and the outside temperature is below the setpoint of the outdoor thermostat, the heat pump will be locked out and the furnace will become first stage heat. The furnace will remain first stage heat until the call is satisfied.

BLOWER CONTROL
The Smart KitT will stop the blower anytime it switches between heat pump and furnace operation and the blower will restart at the proper speed.

Comments about Jackson Systems DFK- Duel Fuel Kit:

So I'll start by saying that I got great service from prothermostats. I ordered this product after having another company utterly fail to fulfill my order. Prothermostats was great.

I can't say much abou the DFK other than that it does what I wanted it to do. We recently replaced our central airconditioning unit with a heat pump. I have z-wave thermostats that aren't inherently dual-fuel capable. I really wanted to keep my existing thermostats, and this kit allowed me to do that for a very reasonable price.

Basically, when the external temperature falls below the preset temp, the oil furnace kicks on. Above that, the heat pump handles heating duties. It also has functionality to use the oil to get up to tempearature if a set-back is used during the day. It was all installed easily by our installer, and seems to be working fine. We'll know more once winter hits for some real world testing.
