It appears I need to replace my honeywell stat, it is reading 3 to 4
degrees warmer than actual room temp causing the A/C to run too much.
Any suggestions on a new one? I wouldn't mind staying with Honeywell, just
looking for model numbers.
We have a gas forced air furnace with electric central A/C.
I like the Honeywells. I especially like the "smart" one that will
change the start times depending on the response time which means it will
start heating or cooling sooner when it is hotter or colder outside.
I like the Enerstats. But then I did the software for them circa 1999. They
were bought by Johnson Controls a few years ago and I lost track of what
was happening when the Brockville ON plant was shut down and everything
moved to Chicago. I think they are the sleekest looking units. I
installed a pre-production prototype at my house way back when and it has
been working ever since.
I would be interested in hearing any news if someone has recent
information about the product.
I'm a fan of the Honeywell products, too. They have the best algorithms
for temperature control, autochangeover from heat to cool, and have lots
of installer options.
For single stage heat/cool I'd suggest the T8600 (24 V line powered) or
the T8602 (battery powered). They are 'Tradeline' models so you won't
find them at the big box stores. Try your local HVAC suppliers or
online. Price is about $125.
