I have to think up questions to get my blood flowing again in the upcoming winter season. Chime in If you alive.

    Yo, I'm here. And thank goodness you are! Your answers are great. And I've been trying not to spend so much time at my computer--hard on the back and neck--and maybe took it a little too far. Went hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park on Thurs. Beautiful with snow in the air and the sun shining at the same time.

    Have you ever run into a thermostat that has no deadband between heating and cooling? The fan coil units at my favorite hotel in Salt Lake have stats like that. If you turn down the setting past setpoint, the air conditioning comes on--year round. And vice versa. I have no idea why a stat would be designed like that--you?

    D Band//...

    I have seen them, but about 20 years ago. I remember the HW Chronotherms had a little bar that you had to insert to fix your DB to about 3*. Sounds like a sale of new T-stats are in order....

    That's interesting--do you remember which Chrono that was?

    Chronotherm

    All I can remember, it was the one with the analog clock. I believe you had to install the little bar (which most threw out) in between the levers and leave the screw loose so that the DB would slide upon adjustments of temp. Do you remember?...There were 2 levers red blue. If you tightened the screw,...both bars could not move together.

    Wow, I do not remember that one. Had to be a long time ago. Kinda cute though, mechanically adding a deadband. Gotta wonder why they didn't make it just part of the stat.
