I use this thermostat to turn on and off an attic fan when temperatures get too high. I’ve found that every few months mine needs to be turned off and reset, or the fan will just run continously. This is no big deal for my purposes, but if you use it for applications where temperature control is critical for keeping animals or plants alive, check it periodically or buy a more expensive unit.

I recently purchased two of these units to regulate the temperature in my bedroom and my living room. I live in a 1 bedroom apartment. The temperature readout is spot on and it’s easy to program. However I do have two complaints:

1. The unit can only program weekdays and weekends. That means you can’t choose a specific day of the week to program. For example, I am never at my apartment on Saturdays, however since Saturday and Sunday must have the same schedule, as well as monday-friday, I’m wasting energy.

2. In order for this unit to work, there MUST be a ground plugged into the outlet. I bought two “DeLonghi HHP1500 Mica Panel Radiator” heaters (they are amazing, I highly recommend) which don’t have a ground. In order for it to work, I had to plug in an extension cord into the thermostat to trick it into thinking the ground was plugged in, then I plugged my heater into the extension cord and it worked.

Overall, I recommend the thermostat.

 

Buy this! It makes the room temperature very stable!, April 3, 2011 (5 stars)

I installed 2 of these in bedrooms and plugged in electric heaters. They maintain the room temperature +- 1 degree even though I lower the central heating temperature to save money. Previously I used the thermostats built into Delongi oil filled electric radiators to control the room temperature. The best I could get was maybe +- 3 degrees. The WIN100 completely solved the temperature stability and targeting problems I was having! Continue reading »
