Good ProductTuesday, December 11, 2012
I really like it ,
Easy to install .
Should of lasted longerMonday, October 22, 2012
I bought three of these thermostats and wired them up and flipped the circuit breaker.All powered up just fine installed early summer 2012. Went back in September to check on them and one was blank.Measured voltages and supply is present. Blank screen. Will now have to order another.
Should have some kind of indicator light for supply power present.
LineVoltPro 8000 - a Honey of a...Well..thermostatThursday, September 13, 2012
An affordable programmable line volt thermostat that can handle ceiling or baseboard heat? UNHEARD OF! That is, until Honeywell gave us this product. This t-stat does everything you really need it to do including having "Early Start" and manual overide modes. Say you get up at 6am. Early start will have the room to the temperature you require AT 6am rather than just turning the heat on at 6am. Nice feature. At its current price, these things should pay for themselves in a couple of seasons. I can NOT address how well they work as I installed them in August. If they turn out poorly, I WILL let you all know. Western Ohio winters have their own special way of testing heating products! lol
Size, look, cost.

Great product, very quick delievery. Plan to purchase more from DrillSpot.
Good BuyTuesday, March 20, 2012
Overall it works fine, just as designed. Keeps things at a steady temperature, no high or low temp fluxuations.
Lighted dial, time of day, and what stage it is working at this moment.
I will repeat what others have said "improve the instructions" clarify & expand the individual ("setting up") instructions. The wiring portion was ok.
Great Service and ProductTuesday, March 13, 2012
Easy to program and works perfectly. Plan to buy more. Controls room temperature within 1 degree. Easy to read day or night.
It was everything as advertised
An Engineers Brief SummaryTuesday, February 28, 2012
Fantastic! Easy to install, just make sure the power is off, this ain't 120V. If you are stuck with line voltage electric heat, this could save a lot of money over a short period of time.
Great control which equates to savings
I would love if it was cheaper
Just What I NeededTuesday, February 14, 2012
This was just what I needed for my condo. I live in a 50 year old building that has double pole line voltage baseboard heating (if that made sense). It's not easy to find a programmable, let alone digital thermostat of this type in stores. Drillspot had the lowest price, even after shipping costs. Love the product, has a nice simple design and green glowing backlight. I ordered a second one recently (I didn't want to order 2 in the case they didn't work, in which case I would've saved on shipping). This was my first time shopping at Drillspot and would definitely shop here again!
Low profile, backlit
DrillSpot Is Great To Do Business WithTuesday, February 07, 2012
This is one of the best thermostats I have used; it's simple to wire and set up. I would buy from DrillSpot again!
Honeywell TL8230A1003Friday, January 20, 2012
I had a thermostat just like this one & it went bad.
It is 7 day programmable although it is "fixed" to only 4 entries per day and although the times can be modified the "High / Occupied" and the "Low / Away" are set
Solid ProductTuesday, January 17, 2012
I just purchased two of these units, to bring my total count up to three. I have used one for a year now, and it works flawlessly. I purchased two more identical to it, that way I don't get confused how they operate. They are simple to use, easy to get to shortcuts, and have a great display. I really like the temp display on it (my old mechanical ones did not have that). They can be set to bring the temperature up to the preset temp by the set time or it can be set to simply start heating at that time. Installation was simple (if you know wires & trust yourself at 240V). All in all, I could not be happier with it!
Simple to program, even simpler to use
The base is smaller than the previous mechanical base, so paint is needed to patch it up
Amazing SavingsFriday, January 06, 2012
We bought these thermostats to replace generic ones we purchased at our local home improvement store. The clerk wasn't interested in directing us to the best product. After one winter, we knew we had to do something drastic or we wouldn't be able to heat our home affordably. My wife researched thermostats, found this item and found DrillSpot.com offered the best price. She ordered two. Over the winter, we've saved enough money to continue replacing the other thermostats two at a time. Although our winter is somewhat milder this year compared with last year, our electric bill was nearly half of what it was last December. I think as we continue to change the thermostats out, we will see even greater savings. Compared to what our neighbors are paying for fuel oil and gas, our savings is even more significant. Do your research, find the thermostat that works best with your system and you will likely find the best price here at DrillSpot.com.
Thanks for such an affordable, energy, money saving product. It's making life in this economy less stressful
Very Good Customer ServiceTuesday, December 13, 2011
Bought this thermostat before consulting my contractor. After knowing it is not compatible with my heating system, I contacted the customer service for return. Everything went smoothly thereafter.
Well Made Product, Limited Programming ChoicesTuesday, December 06, 2011
The Honeywell LineVoltPro 8000 programmable Thermostat worked great. I installed it myself with some help from a website that instructs you on what LINE and LOAD mean. I used a volt meter to help determine. It was easy to install and setup the programming. My only negative was the limited choices with programming. There are only 2 temp settings (day / night). All your day / time programmings can only use these 2 temp settings. I'd rather be able to set night for 63. Mornings to 69, late mornings to 67, afternoons back up to 69. If you are ok with just two temps then this will work great. This type of thermostat is for electric baseboard heat. Its can handle 240v power.
Easy to install. Easy to program. Accurate temp readings. Bright backlight.
More temp settings
Great T-statWednesday, November 30, 2011
T-stat works great. It was easy to install as I was only replacing an older unit (a different brand) that was defective. The directions were very easy to follow and set up was easy. I really enjoy the programable features and the digital display. It is very quiet. The display lights up if adjusting in a dark or dim room. Drillspot shipped the unit quickly and unit arrived in a very sturdy and well packaged box. I would recommend them to anyone.
Four Wire ProductTuesday, November 22, 2011
This for a four wire setup, while mine is two wire. I missed it in the details. It will cost me not only the return postage, but they charge a 15% restocking fee. I don't think I will buy from this site again because of this policy. I have not run in to this old practice in a long time.
I was not able to use the unit
Great Item, Excellent Service!Tuesday, November 08, 2011
This product is great! It does everything I hoped it would, is easy to use, and it only took me about 20 minutes to install. I would recommend to anyone looking for a 7 day programmable thermostat. The only problem I could forsee is if the power went out I would need to spend time re-programming. But hey, that's only negative to us lazy people :)
Great ThermostatTuesday, November 01, 2011
This thermostat is excellent. It controls the temperature of my radiant-heat ceiling with much more precision than my old unit, and installation was a breeze (once I found the wiring diagram on the back of the unit). The manual's wiring diagram is not as clear. The controls are clear and easy to use. This unit also looks great on the wall!
Design, function, price
Great Buy So FarWednesday, October 12, 2011
I ordered 3 of these for my condo. They arrived a day earlier than the initial fedex delivery date showed. They are compact and smaller than I pictured--which was a good thing. My father who is an electrician installed them and also thought they are 'nifty'. I haven't actually had to use them yet so I can't fully review on how well they work.
Small size, backlight, easy programming
Great ProductWednesday, October 12, 2011
Very easy to install, looks great, and best price online. I ordered it on Monday and it was on my doorstep the next day! Thanks Drillspot
Bathroom WorkThursday, August 11, 2011
Exactly what I needed - 220, dual pole, programmable, great price.
Good company - fast service, good follow up.
Line Voltage Programmable ThermostatMonday, July 11, 2011
It is great looking, easy to see, with a touch of an obvious switch it lights for a time. Very "human" design with ease of use making simple adjustments, and very open programming to set for various days and times.
It has a setting where it will notice the time it takes to heat up the space, and program that into the system adjusting itself throughout the seasons. So, if you want the room warm at 7:30 am, it computes how early to come on so that right around 7 the room is up to the desired temperature.
Some kind of pull down more detailed menu, so programming it could be easier without pulling out the instructions. Otherwise, seems great.
Honeywell Pro 8000Monday, May 16, 2011
Easy to Install and program. Works great. Check with your local utility company for incentive programs (I received $25 per unit) to replace old turn knob style thermostats.
Temperature control +/- 1 F (compared to the huge temperature swing of mechanical thermostats)
If Up and Down Temperature Buttons was on front (not hidden under cover), same for quickly switching between high (home) and low (away) temperature settings.
A Great Product for Baseboard HeatersFriday, May 13, 2011
Finding baseboard digital thermostats is hard! I am so glad I found this great model. It looks great, is easy to use and works like a charm. The click noise is not loud because of the door covers, and the overall look is stylish and modern. The price on Drillspot.com was amazing. I would highly recommend Drill Spot and this product.
Stylish looks, great price, easy to use
An option to change the backlight from green to blue would be cool, but really if thats all I would like to improve this product it shows how awesome it is.
Quality construction, great interfaceWednesday, May 04, 2011
After purchasing two of these units earlier this this year, we just had to have another one. Our first two have the Aube name on it instead of Honeywell, but it's the same unit. We have an older home that has been converted into short term lodging - like a B&B but without the "breakfast" We call it a B&K (guests have kitchen privileges). We wanted an easier way to manage the individual room electric baseboard heaters than traditional manually operated dial thermostats located on the actual baseboard heaters. It required some additional wiring to install the new thermostats at an acceptable height and across the room from the heaters, but the results are terrific and well worth the extra work/expense. The thermostat's interface is better than the programmable "Honeywell" thermostats in our home. Lots of flexibility, back-lighting for easy viewing, temporary over-rides and it's easy to program. Since some of our rooms are not occupied for several days at a time, we especially like the "vacation" mode that provides an over-ride to the daily program. I'm sure the payback is very quick, and the added convenience is priceless. Even the guests have remarked on how easy they are to operate and the quality look/feel. These are not cheap looking, flimsy stats. They are nice looking, quality design and fabrication.
Features, quality design, great aesthetics, robust/quality construction, excellent price/value
The only thing that could be better would be if they were free!!

Programming can be hard
Best thermostat in the world!Friday, April 29, 2011
This is a wonderful thermostat for baseboard heaters. It has all the functionality that I need and doesn't require seperate batteries to operate. Once it is programmed you rarely need to think about it. I will be buying more in the future to replace all of my thermostats with this one!
My Husband is Very Happy with Thermostat!!Tuesday, April 19, 2011
It is what we needed for our bathroom, sleek and small. We would recommend this to everyone.
The time showing on the thermostat and the price was very reasonable.
We don't know, it has everything we wanted.
Great Product!!Thursday, April 14, 2011
Easy to install and operate. Exactly what I wanted for my new Cadet 240 volt hydronic baseboard heater.
Great build quality, easy installation. Good instructions.
Good for what's availableFriday, March 25, 2011
It's a good choice for an electric programmable thermostats. Doesn't have as many choices/settings as my oil heat programmable. I'm not sure how accurate it is-I have one next to the oil heat thermostat. The electric reads 65 and the oil heat reads 69. I bought four.
Awesome!Friday, March 04, 2011
These are so much better than the manual builders grade thermostats I had in there before. This was the best price for these also! Quick shipping. I plan on buying for the rest of my house soon!
Works Well with Some RestrictionsSunday, February 27, 2011
Installation was fairly straightforward once the two 120 volt lines are identified. Be careful that your existing circuit box (for remodels) has room for this device as it has a large footprint and will compete with the wires for box space. Once installed this device has work as advertised. It is very nice to wake up to a room that has been warmed. Only minor drawback has been the two temperature restriction that others have mentioned. While you get 4 heating periods per day - you only get two temperatures to set the time periods two which is unlike furnace controls that I've used in the past where each zone can be set to a unique temperature. Given the lack of options for radiant heat systems, I'm very happy with this unit.
Good Price - time set thermostat
More temperature options
Excellent productThursday, December 30, 2010
This thermostat keeps my great room at a steady temperature -- something my old thermostat did not do. It's easy to program. I'm very happy with it and with Drillspot's price and service.
Great Product!Thursday, December 30, 2010
This product seems to work the way I want. The only drawback would be if you wanted to program different temps. for different days. I wasn't able to determine how to do it. However, it works great for my needs, as I only need one low temp and one high -- the same for all days. Easy to install--just remember to determine the line and the load in stat box. Great service. Stat arrived in 2 business days!
Easy to install; love the 7-day programmability
Different temp settings for each day. Some may need this capablity.
Honeywell ThermostatThursday, December 23, 2010
Excellent product that is fully programmable to control my electric baseboard heating.
Easily programmable and can be easily set to a manually desired temperature without upsetting the automatic program cycle
No noted improvements needed.
Not Perfect But Fairly GoodMonday, December 06, 2010
There aren't many programmable line voltage thermostats to choose from and I chose this one as closest to what I wanted. The Lux thermostat doesn't share the cons but its lack of a backlight killed it for me. A good combination of the two would be perfect. This thermostat has only two programmable temperatures, which is not a problem for me.
Great backlight, easy to read display, easy to program, works well.
Battery backup and a few of the buttons more easily accessable. Loses clock setting in extended power outage, override buttons hidden behind doors.
Works GreatTuesday, November 09, 2010
I bought and installed 4 in my house. I just ordered 2 more to finish the rest of the house. Pretty easy to install yourself and makes heating your house a lot of efficient instead of using the old turn knobs. Drill spot has the cheapest price and even cheaper shipping especially when you order several.
Great Stat!Friday, October 22, 2010
Just what we needed for our condo with electric baseboard heaters. No more having to remember to turn down the heat at night or getting up to cold rooms! Once you get the hang of the programming, it just does its thing. Very accurate, so you don't have big temperature swings. Makes the condo more comfortable and saves energy.
Everything! Automatically adjusts for daylight savings time.
Just fine as is.
Fantastic Thermostats!!!Monday, October 11, 2010
We got three of these thermostats last week. We received them very quickly, and they work great!! You can program each day differently, which is great. We would highly recommend these to anyone!
Everything, programmable, design, looks great!
Best There IsThursday, October 07, 2010
I believe this to be the best programmable digital thermostat for line voltage heaters currently available. We installed them in every room of the house to control our Cadet register heaters. This is the second home we have used these in. Not cheap, but competitively priced considering what you get.
Very contemporary appearance, large digits, backlighting, can be turned off COMPLETELY (off switch for no power to heater during summer months or extended absence),quiet operation (sounds trivial, but nice in the bedroom), very flexible programming options.
The same flexible options for day to day programming that I love are also a bit of a pain to initially program--no battery back-up so you are back to square one if there's a power failure or other power interruption.
FantasticThursday, September 09, 2010
Great product, and most importantly, great service! Items arrived extremely fast, and in perfect condition. I will buy anything from the Drillspot in the future!
Easy to Use, Easy to Install, Great Honeywell QualityFriday, December 18, 2009
I have installed a few Honeywell thermostats by now and they are always good quality with tons of easy to use features, which is what made me buy this one. The price is very good and the hookup is a piece of cake for even a novice. I used this to replace the old "comfort zone" thermostat in our master bedroom, which was pretty much worthless for attaining a certain temperature. Now I can set the temperature or put things on automatic mode and know that the room will be comfortable, without wasting a lot of electricity. DrillSpot also did an excellent job getting this to me quickly; I have it within 2 business days of my order.
Simply to use, powerful features, good price
None that I can think of
ExcellentSunday, December 13, 2009
Soooo much better than the analog, 30-year-old thermostat it replaced. Keeps great temperature.
LineVoltPRO 8000 Line Voltage ThermostatTuesday, June 30, 2009
This is a great fully programmable thermostat that operates from line voltage (no batteries needed) that I could find online. It has a cool package with hidden buttons for the user interface which is also intuitive. The button on the outside illuminates the backlight with a nice green glow. Has day, date, time and temperature reading on the display, as well as the state of the thermostat - home, away, sleeping, and awake. Drillspot had the best price and delivery was in 1 day. I couldn't believe it when it came the day after placing the order!
Fully programmable. Operates from line voltage (240 VAC). Perfect for baseboard heaters.
Installation instructions do not show wiring schematic, but it is shown on the back of the thermostat.
Best So FarSaturday, January 17, 2009
I found it easy to wire, probably due to the fact that I was replacing a Honeywell thermostat. I did have to read the instructions for programming a few times to get that part right though. Seems to be very accurate, even in sub zero weather. This is the 3rd thermostat I have tried over the years and is by far the best. I have it in my master bedroom.
Accurate, stylish, easy to read
Needs better programming instructions
Works perfectly!Monday, December 22, 2008
I don't have much more to say than what has already been said: the thermostat works perfectly as advertised. Plus, the thermostat was drop-shipped quickly from a Grainger warehouse just a few miles from my house. I'm not sure how it happened, but I ordered on a Saturday and I received it on the following Monday!
So Easy to InstallTuesday, December 09, 2008
I bought several different thermostats and returned them all because they weren't compatible with my Cadet heating system. Finally I found this one which was the best and easiest to install. I have a 4 wire system and install took a total of 15 minutes. This system is especially nice if you had a standard thermostat before because the mounting holes line right up with a vertical thermostat and bolted right in. Oh yeah, really fast shipping!!!Good luck!
Sleek, modern, easy to program, good looks
Works so well I will buy 3 more
Excellent ThermostatMonday, November 10, 2008
Love the 7-day programmability and the 4 time zones each day. Easy to program and the backlit display which displays the current room temperature is a key feature**Important - This is a 4 wire thermostat designed for 240 amp wiring used for electric baseboard heating. If you only have 2 wires you have to order a different model.
Easy to install, programming pertty straight forward.
The little button get stuck down sometimes which is easily fixed and doesn't effect the operation of the thermostat
Best Value, Hands Down!Sunday, November 02, 2008
This is a great deal first off, because Drillspot has the lowest price on the net, and I received it in 1 business day! Honeywell is a trustable brand and this device has good reviews everywhere. After installing it, I have to agree it is not only very attractive but 7-day programmable is great and it can be completely turned off when you are away unlike analog thermostats. Much more accurate than our old analog unit and it displays the current room temp which is handy. The backlight is green so it matches our GFCI's and home security system, too! We will be getting 3 more soon for the rest of the home! Thanks Drillspot!
Easy install, clear instructions, attractive design, intuitive function, energy-saving
Seriously cannot think of ANY cons
Greatest Line Voltage Thermostat!!!!Thursday, October 16, 2008
Unbelievable energy savings. Not only is it programmable it has 5 intensities of heat in 20% increments which improves savings that much more. My old thermostats were on or off and had to guess what temperature they were set at (Hi, Low and "comfort zone"). Once I got the wiring of the first one it was a breeze for the rest. Now I have 13 and my winter energy bills are significantly lower paying for the cost of the units 10 fold
Best thermostat for Baseboard HeatersThursday, June 05, 2008
It took me a little while to install because I am not an electrician and this t-stat has 4 wires and my old one had only 2. The preprogrammed settings were perfect for me, I didn't have to change anything. Check with your energy company for rebate checks. I have sent in receipts that have given me $50 in rebates for the 2 units that I have purchased.
Good looking unit
Hidden controls confuse my roommates
The Best Programmable for Baseboard HeatingWednesday, March 05, 2008
Put one of these in our condo, very nice, bought 2 more for other rooms.
Programmable, Easy Install, Looks Great
Electric Heat ThermostatSunday, February 03, 2008
We have electric heat throughout our house, a pain turning up & down thermostats (10 in all in house, morning/night). These are 4 wire & after the wiring up the 1st one, have installed 6 now in house. Can work with 3 wires or 4 (haven't tried 2 yet). Programming is easy & flexible so you can adjust the default settings. I'd thoroughly recommend these for anyway with electric baseboard heaters & I await my savings in heating costs...which is one of the key drivers here.
Easy to program, Neat looking, Modern
Initial wiring, once conquered, easy to repeat
