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.
Originally posted by hal parker 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.
My talking thermostat I had for years. "How come its cold in here. Turn up the thermostat, turn down the thermostat, blah blah balh...."

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.

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!
