    Have you guys seen these when the heat sticks on? Family comes home and all of their candles are drooping over.

    I've installed FocusPro by Honeywell, and I thought there was a way to trick them into going below 40F, maybe off setting (calibrating) the thermister. By playing with the FocusPro, cycle per hour, time delays etc, you maybe able to save more money with them at 40 F than another t-stat at 35 F. The LCD screens have a tendency to fade and lock-up below 32F. Several years ago I installed Digital thermostats, in a video editting studio. They had remodeled and wanted everything to look futurific. I Made the T-Stats "Indiglo" by putting a piece of Acrylic behind them with LEDs lighting the Acrylic. Had to redo them as it made the t-stats 3 to 5 degress off.

    Old T87 with a Q539 sub base off level. We recycle them (give away). It will throw your AC temps off a like amount but that's easy enough to compensate for
