We have a Heatilator EcoChoice CAB50 pellet stove in our house, and it came with an old fashioned manual thermostat. It was always buggy, and sometimes you'd get up in the morning and find that it hadn't run all night, because the thermostat never clicked it on, despite it being 50 degrees in the house! :( So, we bought this for 19.00 and figured, what do we have to lose? The install was very simple. White wire to white wire slot, red wire to red wire slot that has a jumper (if you have two red wires, you remove the jumper). Attach to the wall, put battery in, cover, and viola... thermostat that works. The only thing I don't like about this is that it's very sensitive. A change of 2 degrees will make this thing turn on! Very annoying, because alot of times, the stove will be cycling down, and then start right back up again. Why not just let the thing run :( You can fix that by just bumping the heat up so it keeps it on, and then back down. Annoying, but at least...
This replaced my old, mercury switch thermostat. It didn't accurately give the temperature. This one, I really like. It is LCD and you can see the temperature displayed. Very easy to install. The book says 15 minutes. BUT, from start to finish was under 10 minutes. Just have your tools ready. My old heater has just two wires. I connected one to the slot marked "B", the other to the slot marked "W". Mounted it to the wall with screws that came with it, put in the batteries for the display and unit, set the temp, slide the selector to heat and there you go. Temperature drops, heater comes on. I don't have air conditioning so I couldn't test the cooling portion of it. Just the heater.
This is a simple, non-programmable thermostat for heating and cooling. I needed something simple for my 92 year old mother-in-law in Florida. I previously had a Hunter programmable and auto-changeover thermostat because she wanted something that would automatically change from heating to cooling and back again. (In Florida in the winter, one might need heating in the morning and cooling by afternoon.) That should have been the one, but it turned out to be too complicated for not only the mother-in-law but also for her two sons who live in the same city. She has macular degeneration so is essentially blind. With the aid of a digital magnifier, she can see the temperature setting and the two button interface is simple enough for her to remember. The calls from Florida concerning the thermostat setting have been reduced to almost none.
You do need a very small, flat head screwdriver (similar to a jeweler's) to attach the wires. One is not included.
