Best thermostats for steam systems

    We've had good luck with a Braeburn Model 5000 with our steam system since 2009. The only feature I wish were available is the anticipation of an upcoming temp-change setting. I often notice the boiler kick on for ten minutes right before a setting change only to shut off before the boiler can build a head of steam. I either need to manually shut off the boiler close to the setting change, or to over-ride the thermostat to allow the boiler to complete its cycle. All the other features function smoothly.

    I like Honeywell T4 or T6 series since they have adjustable cycle rate. Some T6 models will allow wired outdoor sensor as well for dual fuel setup if you have a heat pump for mild weather which I think works well if you are zoned upstairs and downstairs with ducted HVAC systems.

    VisionPro allows wireless remote sensors so you can average upstairs and downstairs or multiple downstairs rooms with upstairs.
