Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sdgiant Very nice replacement thermostat
Came with installation documents that were easy to follow. Small wire marking stickers are a nice touch. You just check to what your letters connector your old wires are connected (they are marked like R, W, RC , etc) and put sicker on the wires so you don't get mixed up. Note the orientation of the device. My old one was the same dimensions, but vertical, so I'll be putting a couple more holes in the wall, but that is fine. Simple product that works for me, I only need the heat setting, so can't attest to the cooling setting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jbb49 wonderful choice!
After having a kitchen and bathroom remodel, I realized that I needed to replace my old thermostat in the house. The one I replaced was original to the house, so the system was approximately 40 years old. Concerned about the compatibility, I chose to go with the non-programmable unit from Honeywell. I had been told that their systems would work with most older systems.
I have been extremely pleased with the result of my choice. It took only about 45 minutes for me to install this unit, and I am just a DIYer with minimal electrical experience. I love the fact that it does NOT have all the bells and whistles. It shows the current temperature of the house, but when you decide to raise or lower the temp, it immediately shows what the thermostat is set to and what you are setting it at. I have had no problems with it handling my old wiring. I'm very pleased with this unit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 1stshopper One of the last remaining non-programmable thermostats
For those who do not require a non-programmable and would like to avoid the cost thereof this is the only offering available at HD. It is low cost and functions well and even thought the box does not specify heat pump operation it will operate heat pumps. I gave it three stars because it is difficult to remove the front cover as the pins simply refuse to let go between the base and the front without considerable force. Also I purchased two of these stats and one failed after only three weeks. It failed to turn on the fan automatically. Nevertheless it was easy to return, very simple to install and to operate, and a good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by scandia Fantastic option for old HVAC unit
I purchased this unit to replace an old analog thermostat on a 1986 Lennox HVAC. I was informed, when unit was checked by Home Depot at home services rep, that the back up heat had been by-passed so that anytime heat was called, the back-up strips were on. Understanding this much, I did determine I could upgrade to this digital thermostat which did not involve back-up heat. I did have to consult with Honeywell and the third individual I contacted was able to decipher the correct wiring. Unit is fully operational and I am 100% satisified with this purchase. Due to the conversion, the install was somewhat diffcult.

It was very easy to install and configure this thermostat. I don't need programmming functions because we have radiant heat and keep the temperature a constant value. I bought this thermostat to to replace one that only allowed setting the temperature and nothing to display the current temperature. At the time, figured it was unnecessary. However, when your heating system fails, you need to know how close you're getting to freezing pipes! The profile is shallow .... it's not any thicker than the nearby door trim. That's a nicer feature than the thermostat it replaced too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oldprospector Good Basic thermostat
This was purchased to replace an old mercury thermostat. We did not need all the bells and whistles of some of the fancier thermostats. Easy install as long as you are careful in putting correct color code wires in proper place. Took less than 20 minutes to install with part of that time taking down old one. Works fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MistaB A timely order
We're redecorating our living room and I decided to replace everything, including the thermostat. The wife didn't want a programmable one and the one we currently have was a honeywell, so it was a no-brainer. I was going to replace it after painting but the old one died (thermostat, not wife) and I had to install the new one. Easy installation, works great.

I bought this thermostat for a vacation home. The service is turned off when not in use. If this thermostat is exposed to below freezing temperatures, it will not work. Forget about using it in a garage. The packaging does not inform the customer of this failure. Calling the telephone help line is useless for anything beyond how to install the batteries.
