Thermostats


We're looking to upgrade out thermostats from the two basic ones we have to at the very least a programmable set. Is there a brand of thermostat that and of you would recommend? Is there any brand that you would stay away from?

We are currently looking at this model:

http://www.amazon.com/Hunter-44905-U...een+thermostat

Any info on Hunter brands or this specific model?

TIA

It would help to know what type of HVAC system you have currently.

As far as brand I am not sure. It's all electric with no heat pump if that helps at all.

Thermostats


no, that does not help. Is it forced air? Is it baseboard heat? I would stay with Honeywell or Emerson (white Rodgers) and stay away from Hunter (they make great fans, not thermostats) and LUX.

Thermostats


Here is the EPA's Energy Star thermostat information page, and it has specifications, a buyer's guide and other good information.

Since it is a government site I'd say the information is trustworthy.
