    I just replaced the old round Honeywell thermostat in our apartment with a new digital programmable one. There all basically similar, some have more programs and features such as run time tracking (for changing the air filter), wireless remotes, backlights, etc. Just get one that is "energy-star" rated. Most utility companies are giving $25 mail in rebates for such thermostats.

    Just stay with a Honeywell. I have had mine now for close to 10 years. Only thing I do is replace the batteries in it every time the time changes.

    Yep,
    You cant beat a good Honeywell! Make sure it matches your system, ie: gas heat or heat pump.....

    I bought one this time last year after I saw my Gas bill :eek: We're in a apartment and only had to screw in 2 wires. Honestly it took loger to get out of the box! This is the one I bought:

    It is a Hunter Model # 41100 Cost about $25 bucks at Lowes. They also make one that has a backlight for another 10 bucks. This was well worth the $25 bucks and I would have paid double easily if I had to. Has weekday, weekend, amd vacation settings. You will not be sorry, and honestly don't understand how anyone would use a non-programable.
