Had a problem with my circulator pump recently and the tech said that it "could" be the thermostat. I have 2 Hunters that have been in for about 10 years and I've had no problems. One of the things I like about the Hunter is the filter monitor that tells me how long the fan has been running and so I know when to clean or replace filters.
However, most posts here say that the Honeywell is a much better thermostat. Why? What is wrong with the "junk" Hunter. How many have gone bad and why? I may go with a new Honeywell but don't like to switch brands if I have had good luck with what I have. Is there any verifiable evidence or is this merely Hunter bashing?
