Robertshaw 9500


I have renters that keep turning the heat off during winter and cause freeze damage to the pluming. Is there a way to make a Robertshaw 9500 only allow the temperature go so low even if the renters try to turn it 'Off' or to 'Cool' (which turns the heat off)?

Thanks

Put the thermostat in a lock box or add an addendum to the lease that requires the tennant to maintain a minimum temperature in the winter and if they don't, they will be billed for damages...

I've had landlords put in an additional second thermostat and lines to a location within the building envelope that the tenents don't have access to with it set to a minimum temp when faced with ignorant or belligerent attitudes.

There are a couple of thermostats that have freeze guards built-in. They will automatically turn on when the temp hits 40. I don't know the make or model though..I think its a rite temp.

Robertshaw 9500 has built-in freeze protection set at 40*. You can search for "construction thermostat" wire into your thermostat wire place it in the return plenum so it can't be tampered with by the renters. They are preset to 65* and non adjustable.
