Cons

if you've never installed a thermostat before, getting the 4-7 colored wires set up right can be a little intimidating

some functions aren't active out of the box, need to read through the manual to find how to turn them on

The Honeywell RTH8500D is a programmable thermostat that homeowners can install themselves. The functions and design are similar to the Honeywell RTH7600D, but the touchscreen has been increased to 10 square inches, and a new Vacation Hold feature has been enabled. This allows users to temporarily set alternate heating and cooling instructions, with a return to the old schedule set to coincide for the owner's return from vacation. Each day of the week can be set separately to coincide with the owner's preferences and personal schedule, and both heating and cooling systems are managed to adjust temperatures appropriately. Most heating and cooling systems are compatible, but electric baseboard heating is not. This unit comes with a 1-year warranty.
