This thermosotat may be very well suited for Radiators and other convective heating units that offer rapid heating BUT it was NOT designed for and is INEFFECTIVE for use with UNDER-Floor Heating Mats(As Amazon suggests and shows being purchased WTIH . .) Honeywell offers a similar unit - TH115-AF-GA/u - The operative letter being "F" for floor sensing. Yes, the unit will send power and warm the floor(as will a light/dimmer switch) albeit far less efficiently than the AF models.

So, just becasue OTHERS have bought the unit with a Floor heat system does not mean YOU should. Besides, there is REALLY no point in ordering the EXTRA Floor SENSOR if TH115-A 240 has NO floor sensing capability.

I had a couple of the older Honeywell programmables for a two zone hot water baseboard system and they worked quite well. Since I moved into this new house I found out I couldn't use them on 240v electric baseboard heaters. Luckily, I just recently found these. The first thing I love about them is, unlike the older ones I had, they are a vertical format that perfectly fits the utility boxes. They also look good! They have more features than I really need and the overall cost for 5 units - I have 3 now and will be ordering 2 more next month - is more than I'd like to pay but being they are electronic and react much faster than the old dial control bimetal coil mercury tilt switch pieces of junk that were originally installed AND are programmable, hence worry free, they should pay for themselves by significantly reducing my heating costs this winter. The simple 4 wire installation was a snap - having spent 22 years as an electrical technician helped a lot - and it took only 5 minutes to swap in each unit. A quick test proves that they operate well. There is a relay click which will be noticeable late at night but I don't think it will trouble me much. This house is pretty well insulated so I doubt it will happen often enough to become a bother. Another neat feature is an `Early Start' option, available via dip switch that ensures the house will be warm for you by the time you get out of bed. There is also a nonvolatile memory that keeps your program settings safe in case of a power failure (no batteries needed). I'll sum up by saying that the convenience, increased efficiency, and general good looks make these thermostats a worthwhile investment.

The indicated ambient temperature on this thermostat is 3 to 5 degree's higher than actual ambient temperature. This was compared to two other digital thermometers placed next to thermostat. What happens is when thermostat activates the unit itself starts to warm up from the activation of the relay. This raises the temperature indication on thermostat hence effecting it's accuracy. The thermostat was set for 70 degree's in our living room and the actual temperature was 65 degrees when it shut off. I am returning thermostat and will start to look for something better.

This is a very nice thermostat for baseboard heaters. It is easy to program, much easier than many programmable thermostats. It is quiet and works very well. The display is quite clear and large enough to be easily readable. Very good backlight. I particularly like the fact that it has dedicated buttons for various functions rather than needing to go through extensive menus involving multiple button presses to find a function. Definitely a product I would buy again if I needed a programmable thermostat.

I installed these thermostats in each room to replace the 20 year-old dial-type thermostats. These things are very easy to install and program, and work excellent. I've had them in for about 6 months now, and they do exactly what they say they will do. I would definitely buy these again or recommend them to others.

These may seem like a pricey item when you need to buy four of them, as I did, (and I also paid someone to install them) but once you program each one, you can forget about them, so I expect they will easily pay for themselves over their lifetime. It's super-easy to press a button to put into low-heat vacation mode, or to simply turn the entire unit off, or to temporarily turn the heat up during the current time cycle - in that regard this unit is as easy to use as the old dial-thermostat it replaces. The beauty is in the programming: never again will I wake up too hot having forgotten to turn the heat down, or have to run around the house when I leave, turning them all down, or, worse, pay for heat all day long because I forgot, and the unit "knows" to start pre-heating to the desired temperature just before you wake up or return home. Fantastic!

We use this thermostat with 220v baseboard heating (I know, not the most efficient use of electricity but it came with the place and gets the job done. We use these thermostats with the Aube phone controller for our cabin in the mountains. It allows us to keep the place heated to 50 when we are not in the cabin. A day or two before we go to the cabin we call the controller and set the heat to 70 so it is toasty warm when we arrive. Our neighbors liked the system so much, they got the same system for their place. The thermostats can be programmed to cool at night and will raise the temperature at a set time so it is warm by the time we get out of bed.

Easy to follow installation and programming instructions. If you have baseboard heat these units will lower your heating bill each month. The logic built into the controls works very well. We have a open floor plan that could be problematic with baseboard heaters but these thermostats properly regulate the air temp. Placement of the unit is important opposite or adjacent walls from the base boards is best.

We had old electric baseboard heaters in our 1960's apartment with the original thermostat which seemed to have two modes, fry, and freeze. After replacing the old thermostat with the Aube, we were able to have consistent temperature, and lower our power bills significantly. It was also nice to be able to set a schedule so that the apartment would be warm when we woke up, and returned from work.

We bought 4 of these two years ago and three of the four have failed in the past six months. We had an electrician install them and they were what we needed for our baseboard heaters spec wise. We would never buy them again. We have gone back to non programmable thermostats.
