    This product works great! The only drawback is if the batteries die the unit will no longer work. The battteries included in the unit just purchased only lasted 2 days and had to be replaced. Other than that it works great and worth every penny!

      Comments about Lux Products® Programmable Thermostat (WIN100):

      Eventually the thermostat on every mechanical portable heater I've ever owned (regardless of manufacturer and I've owned many,many heaters) has become unreliable; most frequently,the the thermostat doesn't detect reaching the set temperature so the heater 'gets stuck' in the ON position and won't shut off. This product circumvents this problem. By having the thermostat be external to the heater, I get much more even and precise heat and prolong the life of each heater. ( I use portable heaters in several rooms. I live in a single heating zone 60 unit condominium building with uneven heat and have no control over the heat in the units we own.) My husband has wanted a product like this for years.

        Comments about Lux Products® Programmable Thermostat (WIN100):

        This is an innovative plug-in thermostat that brings energy-saving and convenience to a portable heater or room air conditioner.

        Here's how it works: Instead of plugging your heater or room air conditioner directly into an electrical outlet, you plug this thermostat into the outlet, and then plug your heater or air conditioner into the outlet on the front of the thermostat. Then, the thermostat will cycle your heater or air conditioner on or off in response to your programmed settings -- just like a central system.

        This thermostat provides for both weekend and weekday programs, with up to four different settings per day. Anyone who has used a programmable thermostat on a central heating or air conditioning system knows the advantage of this: You can pre-set the house to warm up or cool down before you wake up, then use a higher or lower setting during the day when no one is home, followed by an automatic re-adjustment so the house is comfortable when you get home from work. Finally, the thermostat can automatically set the thermostat up or down at night, while you sleep, to save energy then.

        This thermostat works in exactly the same way, allowing you to give all of these functions to a room heater or air conditioner. The primary advantage is that you have a digital thermostat controlling the heating and cooling, so you will no longer waste energy by just leaving a room heater or air conditioner running constantly. Second, you can use it specialized areas of the house, such as a room that is always a little cold: Plug a heater into the thermostat, set it at a moderate value for the daytime, such as 68, and the heater will run just enough to take the chill off of this room. If the room stays warm enough, the heater will never come on. At night, when no one will be occupying the room, set it back to 50 so the heater will never run.

        You could also use it for "fail-safe" heating backup when you're away from home: Get a few of these, plug heaters into them, and set them to hold 45 degrees F. Normally, the heaters will never run, but if your central heating system fails, these heaters will come on and keep your house at 45 degrees, so things don't freeze.

        You can also use this to control a window fan: Just plug a fan into the unit instead of a heater or air conditioner, and the thermostat will run the fan to exhaust hot air whenever the room exceeds your pre-set temperature.

        One suggestion: If using this to control an air conditioner, buy an air conditioner with manual, dial-type controls. Electronically-controlled air conditioners (such as those with digital thermostats and remote controls) may not work with this thermostat because it controls devices by interrupting and restoring power. If you interrupt power to an electronically-controlled window a/c, often it will not come back on when power is restored until you turn it on with its own power switch. This is actually a plus: Instead of paying extra for a digital-control a/c, just get a cheaper one with manual controls.

        I have two of these thermostats, and will be buying at least one more. I can't recommend it highly enough.
