Not one that enjoys messing with house wiring to much, I have not messed with replacing our old thermostat, that is, until this weekend. Finally moved to a programmable digital thermostat. Of course, the first one had problems. It simply said 70 degrees all of the time, no matter what. Since the main thing is having the heat kick on and off based on the temperature in the room, this was a bit of a problem. You were either going to end up with it running all of the time, or not running at all. Called the company and they said the first one was defective and I could take it back to the store or they could send a new one. Hmm, run to the store and get it now or wait the estimated 4 days to get it in the mail. Ran back to the store. The second one seems to be working fine. Now I just need to watch it for a few days and possibly adjust the programming a bit to suit comfort levels and timing.
