Easy to install. You'll save money with this thermostat!
Feb 18, 2006
The easy to follow directions will get you up and running in under 40 minutes. Less, if you are an experienced installer.
The best part about the install process is that the thermostat I bought came with pre-printed stickers to put around the wires that you take off of your old thermostat. You take the "R" wire off the "R" terminal, label it, put it aside. When you have them all labeled (5-6 wires) you put them on the new thermostat, which is conveniently labeled like the stickers. A couple screws, three AA batteries, a snap of the cover and you are up and running. It's that easy!
The daily timer set-up was relatively easy, with a nice "Temporary" setting. You can change the temperature during a period (Wake, Leave, Arrive, and Sleep), but the setting cancels when the next program period starts or when you press "Run Program." This is helpful for those of us that forget to turn it back down/up -- it just automatically goes back to your original program. Nice feature for when you have guests and kids: they can change the temp up and down, but once they leave it will go back to your settings.
It also has and "Indefinite hold temp" option and a "Vacation" option. The vacation option can be set for a desired number of days (up to 255) and have the house back to your programmed temp right before you return.
I have already felt the improvment over the old dial thermostat I used to have. The digital settings are much more accurate. Plus, I found that this unit turns off the unit but keeps the fan running for about a minute longer, saving you money by utilizing the heat/cool air that you already generated. My last thermostat simply turned the whole thing on and off.
You'll save money with this thermostat.
***UPDATE: I just found out that the batteries last about a year (+/- a month). Also, when you replace the batteries you don't have to reprogram the thing! YES! All I had to do was set the time and it saw my old programed settings.
