    Hello,

    If all programmable thermostats basically let you program when the heater is on/off, then what makes an Energy STar one vs. the next one, if they have the same programmable functionality?

    Probably costs manufacturer a fee for Energy Star rating.

    The Energy Stat stat is pre program to the guide line of e-star rating.

    The non e-star stat is not pre-programed.

    The amusing thing to me is that, in many climates, if you were to leave that default program in place and let the system run on the program for a year, you would find mold growing all over the place within a year....

    80 degree occupied and 85 degree unoccupied cooling setpoints make for happy mold growing conditions in humid climates.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
