    Comments about Braeburn Model 1000TL 1 Heat/1 Cool Tamper Proof Thermostat:

    Landlord here, using these to limit heat to tenants which I pay for. This is an easy to set up unit, design is perfect for this type of application, good price. Installation is pretty easy so those are plusses. The quality of the manufacturing was less than perfect. I installed 6 of these and there was some variability. The battery cover on 2 wouldn't stay closed when installed (a problem since it's on the front of the unit and the batteries were exposed) probably because the wall might have had a slight imperfection and the back of the unit flexed slightly and that battery door is just very sensitive. I backed off the installtion screws and adjusted the unit until the cover would stay closed but a stronger closure on the little door there would have been more forgiving. The temperature buttons might need breaking in but 2 tenants commented, and I agree, that you really have to press the temperature buttons hard and hold them down to get the unit to respond, it's not a hard click, which again would have been better. For a unit in this price range, I was pretty satisfied. I recommend ordering the backplates for a cleaner look which I did not do initially.

      Comments about Braeburn Model 1000TL 1 Heat/1 Cool Tamper Proof Thermostat:

      I placed one in 13 units I recently purchased. On a 60 degree day, I had one tennant have her heat set on 78! and we are paying the bill.

      We have now set a top limit and have only 1 complaint; guess who from. It is nice that the top limit instructions are not in the handbook. My son (13 years old) set all of the limits which took about 5 minutes per unit.

      Comments about Braeburn Model 1000TL 1 Heat/1 Cool Tamper Proof Thermostat:

      The Braeburn Model 1000TL 1 Heat/1 Cool Tamper Proof Thermostat works great. I used it on a 3-unit forced hot air building, the installation was simple and direct. Changing the temperature limit is appropriately involved. The 1000TL should also work well with a forced hot water system.

      Another building which is steam heated was a bit trickier. Steam valves need to be powered off. This demands an extra relay, fortunately one was in place (RIBU1C relays are $12-25). The tech assistance at Braeburn is friendly, knowledgable and immediate.

      This product and the service earn only praise. Thank you Prothermostats for making the 1000TL available.
