    hi I agree with the white rogers t-stats. we have put in white rogers, robersshaw, and honeywell. I think the white rogers digital non-programmable t-stats work great. I also like the honeywell digital that operates off of the 24volt side of the transformer no batteries required for this one. you can buy them at any supply house.

    W/R thermostats

    We use only W/R stats. I think they have made a commitment to the industry that is unmatched. Although I do like the new talking thermostats I don't yet know how dependable they are.

    Ditto!! Love that stat. Wish the Honeywell digital on my house would die so I could put one on there. Seeing room temp only on the Honeywells just drives me nuts. The battery holders in the Honeywells suck too.

    My vote for the very worst digital is a 3 way tie between Maple Chase (now Robertshaw) (same sh*t different day), Hunter and Lux.

    I'll piggy back this post. I am in the process of changing to a different brand of electronic non-programmable thermostat for service that need the following features:

    24 volt system powered
    Non-programmable
    Auto change-over
    dry contacts if possible
    Higher amperage ratings on contacts
    Can be configured for 2heat/2cool & heat pump
    Remote bulb sensor possible

    I use to use Honeywell but expense and trouble kept popping up. Then I went to the commercial rated Hadco T'stats with great success but just had 3 fail after 3 years and a few other minor problems.

    I am looking for a commercial rated T'stat, whatever that means, that I use for high end properties and commmercial applications including various zone systems.

    Looking for advice as to what you guys have had years of success with based on the requirements above.

    Thanks

    Robertshaw t-stats

    In my opinion Robertshaw thermostats are excellent for all applications. Let me know the application and I will provide you with the specific model # for the job.

    Aren't they programmable? I think I am the only person in the world that is removing programmable and replacing with non-programmable for the happiness of my customers.

    So I need non programmable. I'll look into the Debonair and the Robertshaw thought.

    As for application that runs from heat pumps, straight split systems with electric heat to gas heat, package systems, etc. I think you get the drift. I'm looking for one size fits all so I can GET AWAY FROM HAVING A BOOK FULL OF SET UP INSTRUCTIONS ON 300 DIFFERENT THERMOSTATS and their individual keys function combinations.

    Just give me an on off switch!

    Thanks.
