ASM’s Review of Honeywell Thermostats: Recommend.
All Systems Mechanical is licensed to install all major brands of HVAC equipment, including Honeywell thermostats and control products. In fact, Honeywell is one of our favorite companies and we use them regularly for their simplicity and reliability. After all, who really needs a thermostat that makes you coffee in the morning?
How Honeywell Thermostats Was Started.
Honeywell thermostats got its start in 1885 when an inventor named Albert Butz patented a furnace regulator and alarm, followed closely by the “damper flapper;” a device that worked very much like a modern thermostat. Since this invention, the company went through many names and subsequent acquisitions, including: The Butz Thermo-E”lectric Regulator Co., The Consolidated Temperature Controlling Co., The Electric Heat Regulator Co., and The Minneapolis Heat Regulator Co. In 1904, Mark Honeywell, for whom the company owes its name, joined the team as a promising young engineer. However, it wouldn’t be until 1963 that the company would officially change its name to “Honeywell.”
Notable claims to fame for Honeywell include helping the U.S. Astronaut Program land on the moon, and the iconic T-86 “round” thermostat that started the modern era of in-home thermostats.
