As buzzy as smart home technology is, sometimes builders just want the basics. For those professionals, Resideo Technologies introduced its updated line of entry-level, non-programmable thermostats.
“Our ongoing commitment to the professional channel, coupled with our legacy of innovation, uniquely positions us to meet the expectations of the professional channel, HVAC contractors and homeowners,” Petrina Zaraszczak, vice president and general manager for comfort at Resideo, says. “Resideo is expanding our robust, entry-level Honeywell Home thermostat portfolio with classic retrofit options and familiar features our HVAC contractors have come to trust and expect from us.”
3 new non-programmable, entry-level thermostats
The comfort and security solutions company’s introductions include three models: Honeywell Home PRO 3000, Honeywell Home E1 PRO, and Honeywell Home T3 PRO.
Two of the new introductions, the E1 PRO and T3 PRO, will be available in summer of 2020. Because of the unit’s large font size and screen, the company says that temperatures are easy to view on the new Honeywell Home E1 PRO. As for the newest addition to the T Series, the non-programmable T3 PRO is compatible with both HVAC systems and heat pump applications. This model also features a large display for easy reading and will be available in a gloss finish.
The Honeywell Home PRO 3000
The other introduction, PRO 3000, is available now.
“The PRO 3000 models offer a basic non-programmable thermostat with the convenience of an easy-to-read digital display,” the company says.
To maintain a consistent home temperature, the Honeywell Home PRO 3000 is accurate within 1 degree Fahrenheit and features one touch-controls for easy operation, according to the company. The unit displays both the current and set temperatures, and the thermostat comes with a wall plate, operating manual, wall anchors, screws, and batteries to streamline the installation process. Because the device is compatible with basic footprints for heat pumps with auxiliary heat, professionals can use the thermostat as both a new or retrofit device.
Large, back-lit displays and emergency-heat settings
With its large, back-lit digital display, the model is easy to read even in different lighting conditions, according to the company. The thermostat is equipped with a switchable fan control to toggle between an auto or continuous fan setting. Builders can choose between two styles: a unit with one cool and one heat setting, and one with a third additional setting for emergency heat. Both measure 313/16 inches high, 5⅜ inches wide, and 1¼ inches deep. The thermostat comes with a five-year warranty, runs on two AA batteries, and comes in a standard white color.
“From our proven family of entry-level thermostats to our premium, award-winning solutions, Resideo’s iconic and reliable Honeywell Home portfolio helps our network of HVAC contractors deliver the right solution for each homeowner, regardless of their needs and expectations,” Zaraszczak says.
