What the heck is wrong with Honeywell?
I just got a new Honeywell analog thermostat (CT87K), and the current temperature indicator reads 5° higher than the existing thermostat and any of my digital thermometers I put next to it. I called their support number, and they told me there's no way to calibrate it, so I just have to exchange it.
This is ridiculous!
First of all, where is their quality control?
Second, if exchanging is the only remedy, they are making their customers do their QC! How many of these are going to have to be disposed of before I get one that works right? Since they're made of plastic and chock-full of electronics, they have to send them to an electronics recycler, but I get the feeling they'll end up in a third-world landfill instead. The waste is just nauseating! Wouldn't it save a lot of grief and waste and pollution to just make the stupid things adjustable???
Is this now par for the course for Honeywell? I mean, is this the best they can do? If it is I'm just going to send it back for a refund.
