Default Digital Thermostat

Does anyone have experience with digital thermostat ? Is there really any advantages using it ?

It's very good, I like it, it's accurate reading and programming to reduce cost when no one at home

We got a cool touch screen one from HD. Had one in our old house as well (not touch screen). We have always had one so we cannot compare but I think it defiantly saves on energy.

Mike,

Which model did you get? And if I can ask how much you paid? I've been watching them on eBay.

Are they difficult/expensive to to install? I notice in our new place that we have the traditional thermostats.

We also made the switch several years ago. It definitely saves you money. You are able to lower the heat at night while you are sleeping and have it warm up just before you step out of bed.

We will be getting one for the new house. Possibly the one below.


Installation is very easy. This one costs $139 at Home Depot.

This is the one that we just had installed:

http://www.aprilaire.com/index.php?z...prog&item=8366

I think it was about $250 but we got it for free - some kind of government rebate program I think. We purchased it with our AC/Humidifier/Media air filter and had it installed at the same time. Don't know if the rebate was only for a limited time or not. We have only had it for a few weeks so I can't really say if it saves money or not, but the programmable feature is really cool - it also lets you know when it is time to change the furnace filter.

We got the RiteTemp thermostat. I could not find it in the Canadian HD but we got it there (maybe it’s to new ). It’s on the US one though:

http://www.homedepot.com/cmc_upload/...15000150_3.jpg

I think it was list priced for $79.00 but there was a coupon for any thermostat from HD (at the time) and we paid around $60.00 for it, if I remember correctly.

It’s great, I have installed a couple of them for myself and friends and family…very easy. Just make sure when you take the old thermostat off you label each of the wires (if they are not labeled already) and tie them to a pencil or something because when you let go of them they tend to want go back down into the wall.

Mike

Another vote on this model; it is the RTH8500. I haven't installed it yet (the house closes in October) however looking forward to some of the savings.
