Thermostat Lost 1975 Armstrong

Need to replace my Thermostat. I've got a Bay Breeze made by Armstrong. Model# TR21-12. It's AC only. Prefer not to use mercury. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Is it a remote thermostat? If so, you can use a digital household one.

I think people forget that a thermastat is just a switch that turns on and off at determained temps. So you can use a digital timed one to .

True, and the least expensive ones often run the control with a couple of double a's. You could use the simplist AC only thermostat on the shelf if you wish. I would not hesitate to use mercury thermostat though unless ya plan on breaking it to watch the stuff roll around They do work well though.
