Cheap but Reliable Thermostat: the Honeywell RTH7500D
The Honeywell RTH7500D Conventional 7 Day Programmable Thermostat has everything you need to improve the comfort in your home and reduce your energy bills.
It is a thermostat that is a great value at $60. This post will look at what you get when you purchase a Honeywell RTH7500D programmable thermostat.
The first thing to note is that this thermostat can be easily installed to manage nearly any 24 volt HVAC system including central air, heat pumps, gas fireplaces and Millivolt systems. It can be affixed to up to 2 stages of heating and 2 stages of cooling.
Reviews of the Honeywell RTH7500D attest that it is a programmable thermostat that is accurate to +/- 1 degree Fahrenheit.
It allows you to program 4 times for heating and cooling for each day of the week.
The Honeywell RTH7500D also has smart response technology that learns how long it takes to pre-heat or pre-cool a room so that you always wake up or get home from work to a comfortable house.
By using sensible settings and by matching the HVAC to your schedule you can expect to save up to 30% on your heating and cooling bills over the year. That means this thermostat pays for itself in just a few months.
Other features on the Honeywell RTH7500D includes a temporary hold to override the settings; auto change-over to switch automatically between heating and cooling as the weather changes; and the option to cycle the fan to distribute air around the home.
The Honeywell RTH7500D has a large back lit digital display and uses a menu style system of programming that is very easy to understand, just like other Honeywell thermostats. Once the details of your heating/cooling schedule have been input you need never worry about re-programming because the unit retains information even after a power outage.
The Honeywell RTH7500D Conventional 7 Day Programmable Thermostat might be cheap but it is reliable and if correctly used will pay for itself.
