This is a very nice programmable thermostat. I was able to install it myself in less than a half hour. I called Honeywell once regarding the installation on a heat pump, simple question, simple answer and I was done. I programmed it within a half hour as well. Nice product, yes I would recommend.
I ordered one of these because my son was constantly changes the settings when I wasn't home and then changing them back before I got home. I came home early one day and caught him. This solved the problem without me actually installing it. But, though I did buy it I failed to read the description on size. It was way too big for our thermostat, at least 150% too big. But even so, if my son does it again I will install it no matter how big it is.
Our ac service man said to get a Honeywell after our previous one started acting up. I can't say we weren't intimidated when installing it but it really was quite easy and works great, especially after we had the service man come out and disable the Smart Response Technology which allows the thing to think. We found that sometime mid-morning it would decide to drop the temp to 73 when we had it set for ac at 81. Anyway, it works great now.
