To my dismay, I am not running wood right now; I'll skip the details... For the time being, to my chagrin and some $ouch$, right now I need to run oil to heat this big old hard to heat 1840a Vermont house. It's been five years since I have run oil, and I am now aware just how much my Honeywell programmable t-stat short cycles my forced warm air ThermoPride, even though I have selected the "steam" setting on the t-stat that supposedly results in fewer, more sustained/ longer, burner firings. Not only are short cycles bad for efficiency of oil combustion in general, they are extra bad when you have a big heavy heat exchanger like my ThermoPride does, and then add to that a lot of long ductwork through a chilly stone basement, and I can tell that I am throwing away needless oil and dollars. I put in a net-controllable t-stat that gives me an option to pick the response "band" and can tell that setting a wider band results in a LOT more _net_ heat in the house per net amount of time I hear the burner run. Yes there is a bit more fluctuation, but it is still much more comfortable. But that net-controllable T-stat is having other issues with manufacturer server support, so I am back to "less smart" T-stat in the meantime. Can anyone please point me to a cheap T-stat that lets you set the band/ range of upper and lower temperatures between its switching the burner "on" and "off"? Many thanks!
