|Even in this straight-on photograph, you can't see the little red thermometer properly. You can barely make out a red line near the degrees F scale.|
Enter the solution. After some research and knowing my intolerance for over-engineered devices, my husband chose a product called "Honeywell TH1100DV1000 Pro-Digital 2-Wire Heat Only". Here is the very simple installation sequence.
|Remove the old thermostat from the wall. There are just these two wires.|
|Take the front face off the new Honeywell, connect the wires, and then screw this part to the wall. The device operates as a circuit-completer, so it couldn't be simpler.|
|Put the front face back on.|
|Hopefully my 32 degree F camping nights of saying this to myself are now over. With the old thermostat I did a lot of fumbling around and was alternately too hot or too cold.|
