    I have never seen a Goodman with seperate Emergency and AUX connections. All Goodmans I've seen are basic 5 wire thermostat connections, R-G-C-W1-W2. W1 and W2 are tied together in just about every install. No connection on air handler for O or Y.

    Good morning everyone, it's helpful to keep in mind that the touchscreen on the ecobee Smart thermostat is resistive instead of capacitive - this means for best results you have to exert a little pressure on the screen with your finger (or a stylus). Think of it as the difference between an iPhone screen versus a Nintendo 3DS screen.

    Don't worry, we've acknowledged this feedback for the future

    Any luck with this?

    I tried connecting mine as described above, with the E wire just capped off, but then woke up to a 50 degree first floor because the heat pump turned off when it went below 35 and the aux heat never came on. Did you ever try this and get it working (or did anyone else?).

    Yes, it is a heat pump with a propane furnace as auxiliary heat.

    Have you removed the existing fossil fuel kit from your system before installing this thermostat?! This and any other thermostat should really be installed by a professional when used on a dual fuel system due to having to remove the outdoor thermostat and external fossil fuel kit from the system. You can do all this yourself but it can be very confusing for even a seasoned professional due to all the wires that are involved. We would need more information about your current equipment (make and model numbers) to draw you a diagram for all wiring that you would have to follow exactly. We could also then provide the correct settings that need to be made in the setup process of the thermostat. You should really call ecobee so they can explain this to you also. Or you could call a professional that is very experienced in dual fuel systems and different control systems.
