When you say "power the controller" do you mean that I would use the R and C terminals to supply 24AC power to the controller instead of using 110VAC - 24VAC transformer? If it is the case wouldn't my humidity controller go off when heat is not on?
Or do I connect relay solenoid between R and C and let the relay contacts complete the water valve circuit?
Sorry for asking so many questions but this is the way I would like to go and I have no experience hooking up stuff in the HVAC area.
