Is there a thermostat for a central AC/Furnace that does not need to
be switched between the HEAT and COOL setting? Say, you set a desired
temperature at X, and it heats f the temperature is below X-1 degree,
and cools if it is above X+1 degree?
You can certainly buy the 'high class' products on the net, but you will
pay close to retail price. Also, wiring of any but the simplest 1-stage
heat, 1-stage cool systems can be problematic. The original installer
may not have followed the correct color coding, some thermostats require
a common wire which your installation may or may not have, and all it
takes is one misstep to blow a fuse and render your system inoperable,
or worse. Is it worth the risk for $75 or so? If you think it is, then
press on, and good luck.
