Venstar Announces Value Series Residential Thermostats With Battery Back-Up PowerBattery Keeps Thermostat Working If Power Fails (November 16, 2011)
CHATSWORTH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/16/11 -- Venstar®, a leading thermostat and energy management systems supplier, today announced the availability of its new Value Series of residential thermostats that feature battery back-up that supplements system power in the event of a power failure. The battery keeps the thermostat's clock functional for up to one year, so re-setting the clock is not needed should power go out. Additionally, all time period programming and advanced setup programming is stored permanently in the event of a power failure in the thermostat's memory.
The new Value Series of thermostats combines an easy-to-use function and easy-view display with affordable pricing. Now available throughout the United States and Canada, Venstar's Value Series comes in four models: T0130 and T1035 (1 Heat, 1 Cool, Non-Programmable or 5+2 Day Programmable); and T0140 and T1045 (2 Heat, 1 Cool Heat Pump, Non-Programmable or 5+2 Day Programmable), all of which are battery or system powered. Estimated street prices start at $30.
"Venstar's Value Series of residential battery-powered thermostats are designed for homeowners who want the security of having battery back-up power in addition to the system power in an affordable, easy-to-use thermostat," said Steve Dushane, president and CEO of Venstar Inc. "In addition, this series is easy to use and view with its large, easy-to-read backlit digital display that instantly shows the user the room temperature and whether the heating or air conditioning is on or off."
All four models include:
- Battery back-up that keeps the thermostat working in the event of a power failure;
- A large, easy-to-read backlit digital display showing Fahrenheit or Celsius room temperatures;
- A bi-color LED indicator that glows red for heating and green for cooling;
- Simple operation with slide switch for heat, cool and off;
- Easy-access front battery compartment; and
- Sleek styling and white color that attractively blends into most any décor.
