Hi - I need some help, if someone out there can point me in the right
I have an Amana forced air gas furnace and a Rheem A/C unit. All was
working fine, but we were redecorating and wanted to update the look of
our old Mastercraft (a Canadian Tire brand) thermostat.
I went out and got one of these spiffy looking Noma 52-2558-8 units and
after countless hours checking wiring, scratching my head, returning
units, I finally checked on the web and can confirm (IMHO) that these
units are poor quality and not worth the effort to mess around with. I
got nothing but erratic operation out of two units. I am definitely not
a pro, but my old one works fine still when I re-installed it.
Now, I want to replace my unit with a **
one. I read the web and
the point was well taken that most people have large amounts tied up in
a home and posessions - why risk it on a $30 piece of junk?
The problem I have is I do not know what specific unit to look for.
The consensus so far seems to be Honeywell as a brand, but I am open to
any and all opinions/recommendations - I just want the damned thing to
work as it should and reliably!
I think I need (as a minimum based on my experience as a dumb end
Heat and A/C controls
programmable 5+1+1/ 4 settings per day
independent fan on/off
swing cycle setting
digital display (wowee)
hi/lo temp protection
I am in Canada, so I need a model number for this region, maybe a
source as well if any one knows.
Thanks in advance! And......Happy New Year!
