Aprilaire's newest thermostat is better then the rest! Touch screen is a popular technology because it's so easy to use; the Aprilaire 8600 provides homeowners with super-easy programming, maintenance reminders and a large easy to read back-lit display. The Model 8600 Touch Screen thermostat is the easiest most intuitive thermostat to set up and use. A truly universal thermostat, the 8600 fits nearly every application and is designed to be both installer and homeowner friendly. With an exclusive "message center" there are no codes to remember and no need to reference the manual, plus the 8600 provides valuable feedback and instructions to the homeowner like what stage the equipment is in or when the thermostat is in an equipment protection hold. The 8600 also has great IAQ features like a programmable fan and fan circulate mode which means you get more air cleaning. On top of all the great features of the Aprilaire 8600, the price is awesome too!
