My Hunter has performed flawlessly for a year now, and at all temperatures. To date, it's been the best, and easiest, improvement I've made to "Christine".

Best regards and safe travel to all,

Mine was a generic brand I purchased at Home Depot. I didn't need the programmable features and it was only about $19 each. Have worked well for over a year now. Pretty much any digital thermostat will work.

A year ago, the non-programable Hunter I purchased from Walmart, model #42995, was $17.97.

I replaced mine with the same model Hunter and noticed that the furnace didn't cycle on and off nearly as much. It was a nice improvement over the old one.

I bought a decent Honeywell thermostat at Amazon - about $50 - that is programmable and includes an illuminated digital clock, which I was looking for as an upgrade. It very does a good job of reducing cycling at night time - it supposedly learns how fast the space heats up and cools down - so it doesn't over-run and under-run with the furnace - and it also helps save fuel by automatically shutting off completely when it's time to wake up. Using the stove to make coffee and breakfast keeps us plenty warm once we are up.

I just replaced my OE thermostat (for heat system only) with a Honeywell RTH 111B from Walmart ($24.48). I called help line and they said my two unmarked wires should be on termanals R and W on the new thermostat. I only ran it through one cycle and it worked as expected.
