    The Honeywell 5000s are back!

    Glad to see Honeywell got their head out of their butt and brought back a robust, reliable thermostat! Probably old news to some of you guys, but I just stumbled upon this earlier this week. Long live the TH5220D!

    I liked all the old line Honeywells...

    3000 4000 5000 6000...
    And of course the 8000 and 9000 lines also

    Glad to hear they are coming back.

    Having said that...
    We are mostly using T4's and T6's now...
    The T6-PRO-Wifi is a little over a C note here... does 2H2C... and is reliable... and the customer can set up WiFi if they want to.

    Easier to carry 2x stats, than a bunch of models.

    I agree the old honeywells were way better than most all of the competition but i shure am not going back to them. I carry a T4 and T6 and that covers everything accept i have to get another model t6 for 2 stages of electric backup heat on a heatpump.

    With the T series I always enjoy seeing my customers eyes light up when they see how nice looking the thermostat I offer is.

    I have had a customer who had tried to install his own thermostat and ended up wasting over 300$ on thermostats that wouldnt work before getting one that would work and having me come out to install it but when i showed him the T6 he bought it instead.

    Spoke to a Honeywell rep. They increased the price on the old thermostats for no reason other than to get people to buy the T-series stats. So you’re essentially paying more for less. My advice is to just ditch them and go with the new T-series. They’re so much better overall and all the backplates are universal (except the T10).

    I had been using the large display pro 5000 when they discontinued them, the only issue I have with the T-6 is that I have gotten customer complaints about the small display is hard to read. I would liked to seen a modernized version of the Pro 5000 that kept the larger display.

    The I love the Pro5000 series because of the large display and the easy on the eyes green back light. We have been using the Aprilaire 8448 thermostats and they just seem cheaper than the Honeywells. The Aprilaire's won't react instantly when you push the buttons like the Honeywells do.

    I always loved the 5000 & 6000’s because of the battery door.
    I’ve had a lot of service calls over the years due to the customer bending the pins or pulling the mollies out of the wall
    I have been using the t-4’s for some time and it is a nicer looking thermostat, both programmable and non programmable and cheaper. But a little confusing to navigate

    Had an issue with a T4 today...
    New from the box... that cutsy thing one attaches the wires to... was defective.
    The Y terminal was not connecting to the actual thermostat head.
    Got another terminal block from another stat box... fixed it.

    Will have to take that one back and get a replacement at the supply house.

    I really like the T4/6/10. Being able to program only the features you want to show up is nice. Cool only, no problem. No scheduling, no problem. It makes for a clean install without needing to specify the exact tstat for the job.

    We are working through a bad batch of T6's. Honeywell is making it right though, so no real complaint. These things happen.

    I truly prefer a good screw terminal to that spring loaded nonsense.
