Stratospheric acclaims for Spyder Robotics. Mine worked 24/7 for almost a decade, when one thermostat stopped working. I never expected such long, steady, service.
I've had three for over ten years, and they don't break. They are the Herpstat II with 8 feet long thermostat wire probes. The owner told me that they are solid state and test the temperature dozens (thousands?) of times per minute. It seems that by nature, solid-state thermostats don't wear out.
A few weeks ago one of my probes bit the dust. I traded the dead probe with a probe from a woking unit, and the disabld 'stat started right up again. So I just have to get one new inexpensive part to keep my three unit collection working.
