Triple Success Story
November 15, 2018
I bought one of these thermostats in June. It had a bunch of features I couldn't find in competitive models. The ability to turn off predictive temperature changes since I'm on Time of Use billing with my power company. Also, the ability to clearly and visibly set individual day programming helps adapt the thermostat to my needs. I found the thermostat programming and customization to be clear and straightforward.
I liked it so much, I bought two more! Now each of my heat pumps for main house, upstairs and garage has the same Saswell Thermostat. Even with heat pumps installed 30 years ago to this summer, the instructions and diagrams made the upgrade simple.
There is one minor error in the instructions that could cause problems. The "O" and "B" instructions are exactly backwards from what most heat pumps require. So if your A/C comes on when you select Heat, you would have to move the wire on "O" or "B" to the opposite terminal. I did hope that they might have corrected this in the manual included with the newer thermostats, but the wording is still the same.
There are a few other obviously incorrect words in the manual, but they don't affect its readability.
