Honeywell Thermostat Models Review

We’ve reviewed several Honeywell thermostat models on this site.  Specifically, we’ve covered some of the line voltage models for baseboard heat.  Furthermore, we’ve discussed models up through the late model Honeywell smart wireless remote thermostats.  Below, find a summary and picture of each one tested so far.  We’ll add more here as we review more.

Line Voltage Honeywell Thermostat Models

Honeywell RLV310A Baseboard Heat Digital Thermostat

In the first example, the Honeywell RLV310A thermostat provides non programmable yet electronic control of baseboard heaters.  No clicking relays or micro switches.  So this is a great choice for heating control in bedrooms.  It works well in libraries, classrooms, and other places where quiet is the rule.  The RLV310A keeps a tightly controlled room temperature, with very small temperature swings between OFF and ON temps.  Se our review   here.

Honeywell RLV430A 5-2 Programmable Line Voltage Thermostat

Next, the RLV430A provides all-electronic, solid state control of your electric baseboard heating. It has rapid on-off cycling for low temperature swing.  Then too, it offers 5-2 mode.  E.g. Five week days in one program group, and the two weekend days in the other. Further, it never sticks in the ON or OFF position, like some cheaper bi-metal thermostats can.  So, you can set one heating schedule on the weekend days (Saturday and Sunday).  Then, you can set another for the week days (Monday thru Friday).  Finally, the front cover hides the advanced controls.  Read our complete review here.

Next, these intelligent Honeywell thermostat models are one of Honeywell’s first full-color touch screen units.  They offer seven-day scheduling in four programmable daily periods.  This model supports independent programming of each day’s schedule.  You can remotely set this stat via the Honeywell Total Comfort Connect web site.  This model features quiet running and low temperature swings when set up the right way.  Its settings appear in plain English on the high contrast full-color touch screen.  No need to look up setting codes when changing a setting.    See our complete review   here.

The RTH8580WF is one of Honeywell’s first thermostats that you can control remotely via their Total Comfort Connect web site.  It offers separate programming of each of the seven days in the week.  Or, you can set them in one or more groupings.  This WiFi thermostat sports a large green touch screen with black characters. It offers lots of settings and modes.  Plus, it controls most types of furnaces and central AC systems offering 24-volt control circuits.  Honeywell thermostat models like this one are still available to buy on the Internet.  Read our full review   here.

The Honeywell RTH7600D programmable thermostat provides 7-day scheduling of daytime and night time temperatures.  It’s bright green touch screen, that’s easy to read, offers quick access to all schedules and settings.  The included manual steps through installing it and setting it up.  It also shows how to connect this thermostat to WiFi and program it.   Finally, the manual runs through accessing this model through the Total Comfort Connect web site.  Read our review of the RTH7600D   here.

Honeywell Non Programmable Analog Thermostats

T87N1026 Large Dial Analog Looking Honeywell Thermostat

The T87N1026 has a built-in spring-type thermometer with a big, high-contrast scale. It has a huge temperature wheel with notches around its edge for more true turning.  Plus, when you turn the dial, it clicks in two-degree bumps.  Indeed, this is a great thermostat for low-vision folks.  The TT87N1026 can control most any low-voltage heating / cooling system.  See our full review   here.

Finally, we’ll add more models to this piece as we review them.
