Robertshaw RS3110 Review

Most users find much to praise in Robertshaw RS3110 reviews, although this model doesn't win over everyone. For example, one review at Smarthome says the unit is a snap to install and the low price is a welcome deal. Another review, however, insists the thermostat is difficult to program properly and a third says it doesn't register and regulate the correct temperature. Users who posted reviews at other sites offer up more favorable commentary. The large Indiglo backlight earns an enthusiastic nod at ProThermostats, where users also report accurate and steady temperatures. And at Pex Supply, users' Robertshaw RS3110 reviews say installation and programming are a breeze.

The Robertshaw RS3110 (starting at $26, Amazon) is a 5-day/2-day programmable model with four programmable temperature periods over the course of a day. This 24-volt thermostat runs on two AA batteries and includes a low-battery warning. Aside from the Indiglo backlight display, it features a filter monitor that indicates when it's time to change the system's filter.

Most people report little trouble setting up and using the Robertshaw RS3110, although a few find it a tad tricky. We spotted the occasional gripe about inaccurate temperatures, but the easy-to-read display, overall performance, and competitive price trump the few negative notes.
