    Old gas furnace thermostat. What kind is it?

    Gentleman

    What type of T Stat is this? Someone emailed me asking this question? Is this a line voltage/low voltage stat? Just a regular stat for a gas furnace? Blah Blah Blah

    Thanks

    That's one of those "DUDE YOU NEED A NEW FURNACE ALREADY" thermostats.

    The kind with a REALLY WIDE temperature swing!

    And on the "NEED A NEW FURNACE."
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Put the cover back on and back away slowly.

    Hopefully no one saw you touching that time bomb.

    Looks like a thermostatic style stat of some type. Check here http://www.si.edu/Museums/american-history-museum

    Joking aside. That unit is so old finding a replacement is going to be a huge challenge, if possible. Most likely you will end up with anything but a direct replacement and now you own any issue that comes from this guy.

    Its had a good life, let it die.

    Agreed! I don't plan on touching it all nor would I. If he's to cheap to replace that pile of s**t, he can't afford the service call.

    I'm thinking its just a line voltage bellows tap stat. I ain't touching it

    Loved the museum link
