Best Thermostat for heat pump


what is the best thermostat to buy for a heat pump system. My Honeywell 7 day thermostat seems to go on so often and turns on before the temperature even drops.

I got my vision pro thermostat 8000 configured so it comes on every 45 to 60 minutes.. That is one of my complaints though too.. I'd like the ability to set it longer or widen the temp range of the control loop.. How often does yours cycle?

A comfort thermostat is a very tight temp control device. So you won't see the temp drop.

White Rodgers makes thermostats that have a temp differential you can slightly adjust.
