Recommend a non-clicking thermostat
Recently purchased a new home with a Honeywell FocusPRO 6000. The clicking is really annoying when the air powers on. Tried to get used to it but I can't so I want to swap it out.Was hoping for a recommendation on a solid state relay. Ideally it would be great if it used the same backing plate as the Honeywell, but I think none of the Honeywell are solid state.
Been looking at the Venstar T1010 and Totaline P374-1700. Can't really tell the difference between the two.
My requirements are backlit display.. and that's about it. I've had programmable in the past but usually just use override to keep it at the same temp all day/night. Needs to be RCYWG
Also does the Ritetemp 8022 have a solid state relay? That is what I used to have in my old house and I can't remember it ever making a clicking noise.
Thanks in advance. Really a newb to HVAC but tried to do my research before I asked questions here.
Honeywell IAQ - absolutely silent.

A bit pricey compared to the others I mentioned which were like $

True, but I will probably not even use the programmable portion.

I'd expect to be paying some Gold for it.

if your looking to be cheap about it slap a remote sensor in place of the stat & put the stat in by the unit. can't say id do it that way but its cheap & will work

What type of system do you have
You do get what you pay for.
A good HVAC tech knows how, an educated HVAC tech knows why!
I want, but I am not willing to pay....

All I'm looking for is a solid state relay stat. I found a few that were $*** and under and just wanted opinions on them. Don't think that was really asking too much.

have you tried the blue wire nut approach? very quiet...tho more difficult to use...
light switch is the next step up in ease of use I believe.
