Home Depot sells 240V heavy-current digital stats for baseboard heaters
now (Here in Canada anyways). I think they're over $100 though. The house
I used to rent some years ago had 8 rooms in total, each with it's own
thermostat.... Kinda cost prohibitive.
I bought a Robert Shaw at Ace and it crapped out after a few years.
Meanwhile a Lux and 3 Sears (not sure who makes the Sears) have lasted
much longer. All had a slight click. The RobertShaw was about $125.
The others were about half that.
This is Turtle.
first Art , Robert Shaw has nothing sold to the public worth $125.00 but
maybe Ace thought it should be worth that. You can buy anything Robert Shaw
will sell to the public from Ace or others for about $75.00 is the retail
price of the best Ace can get from Robert Shaw. Robert Shaw sells a 5 day/ 2
day and a 7 day programiable thermostat for retail outlets like ace but the
suggested retail on them is $75.00 + Tax. Now robert shaw does make some
High end models like these for about $100.00 to $200.00 but robert Shaw will
only sell to contractors and not the public. These require a little
knownledge to put them in for they can be burnt up if your not careful
there. they only sell the worm proof model to the public and the screwiable
up models to contractor. They don't like to eat thermostats that are burnt
up in the first day of service.
Secondly, If it clicks , It's not high end equipment , Period. Usely the
$50.00 or less models all click $50.00 to $99.00 models will click but you
got to listen to really hear it, and you hear no clicking at $100.00 or
above on the Honeywell, White Rogers, or Robert Shaw.
Third, if you want a good high end thermostat , get you a Honeywell and get
it over with.
Forth, Sears buys thermostat from the lowest bidder that year. It can be any
brand on the market.
Fifth, Here is a list of the Good High end thermostats in the way of quality
rating of mine.
Robert Shaw / Maple Chase -- their rating dropped when Maple chase bought
Lux / Lux Pro

Read my reply to Art.
Now about the Hunter Clicking here. If a Hunter did not click , i would
think it maybe something wrong. A hunter is going to click but maybe not as
loud as what you say.
