Attached are the specks and stat. As long as it is not a H/P then let me know. Honeywell is the best stat out. I wouldn't install such things as nest or hunters or anything a like. Honeywell is the best stat on the Market. All these other morons want to get in the business but will not beat a Honeywell. look at the options. Like I said I have the same but not WIFI..

Lately I've been looking at the Ecobee (https://www.ecobee.com/) but that's because I have airflow issues in our house where a single thermostat doesn't seem to work well. I like the idea of having multiple sensors in different areas so I can can try to get an even temp across the whole house instead of being stuck with overheated kids and a freezing DW.

I just haven't convinced the DW yet that the $300 price tag will be worth it in the long run.

If I was going to spend 249.00 on a nest then I would buy this Honeywell attached (just packaging)

I had a nest installed recently - after years of a carrier programmable. the nest website will walk you through a do it yourself install but recommend pro help if you have a whole house humidifier so that's the route I went.

I LOVE THIS THING! Frankly it works just as well as the old one did but i'ts much more user friendly than my old thermostat. I can SEE it and set it easily - no millions of screens and buttons, change it from the road.

Highly recommended.

The Trane 950 might be a bit much for you needs but that is what I have. Sends alerts, programmable via internet connection from anywhere, zones, I love the thing but I am strange that way. Turned the heat of for our last camping trip and turned it on from the camper the morning we were coming back.

Wow! all very helpful user reviews and suggestions !
I'll probably be purchasing this weekend so anymore helpful insight and suggestions are highly welcomed!

I just have a plain Ole forced air furnace and a/c unit "no zones" or heat pumps.

Lol the house was built in the early 1920's!

The newer ones are all pretty nice....ive had the nest in a previous setup but I switched all my stuff over to wifi/zwave and the nest left in the process. For a techie nerd like myself I love it all...BUT it has to be user friendly enough for my wife and the nanny to adjust if necessary....

Just pick which features you want and go from there...they are not cheap compared to a reg ol home depot slider stat, but the functionality is worth EVERY penny to me...

Turbs, this same stat is on sale at amazon for $195.00. Cheaper then HD, with free shipping. It will work with your Heil unit and do what you want.
