Wall Thermostat Blues

<< < (2/2)

This is the stat I installed. It works well.The $29 bucks I spent included a new 24 inch thermocouple.

I don't know if anyone makes a mercury stat anymore because so many states have banned them.  By this year the ban may be federal.    The "replacement" manual stat is usually a snap action switch, which is not as good as the old reliable mercury switch.    Even those are few and far between because mostly they are making digital.    But a plain, non-programmable digital is a pretty good unit, because they are simple, and the sensor is a thermistor, which gives a consistent and tightly regulated switchover point.
