    Thermostat recommendation?

    What thermostat do you pro's currently favor? I've been very happy with my Honeywell Vision Touchscreen's - been about three years since they were put in .. seem very accurate and easy to use. Anything new out there that surpasses in performance or value?

    Just the IAQ version with more staging, control of humidity & dehumidfying, ventilators etc.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    If I could followup with a couple questions:

    Have you found the humidity reading to be pretty accurate? What's a decent comfort settpoint for winter (something like 40%)?

    Do you have a logo sticker that you apply? I ask because the unit is pretty sleek, any additional tags seem to mess up the look...

    Thanks!

    We find the humidity reading is pretty close. For winter, interior humidity should vary with outdoor temp. If bitter cold, 40% is probably too high. The IAQ with outdoor sensor will turn down the humidity in cold weather.

    Our vendor does put our logo on them, we do have a few complain about it where almost nobody complains on the cheapies.

    I am pleased with my IAQ, and does a good job with everything. I had to offset my humidity reading by 3%, other than that, it's pretty accurate.

    LOL, Dishwasher don't have any low voltage control, so you may be out of luck on that!

    well lets see here......

    How many CPH do you want the dishwasher set to???? 3 may work good. A little extra water useage.......but theys gonna be some clean dishes
    I fully support the military and the War on Terrorism.


    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    If I use a line voltage contactor, I can control the dishwasher in the winter off the humidier terminals. Need humidity, run dishwasher.

    Didn't Honeywell say that would void the warranty?
