Programmable thermostats can save you money, but what if you only have a window air conditioner — are you left out in the cold?  Maybe not if you plug your AC unit into the WIN100 programmable thermostat from Lux.  The thermostat plugs into the wall and cycles the power to a window AC unit or space heater depending on the current temperature set point.

You can program different temperature set points from 45°F to 90°F for both heating and cooling.  The day is divided into four different periods, and you can have different set points for weekdays and weekends.  Plus you can temporarily override the current set point without screwing up the programming.  You can program the thermostat before plugging it into the wall, so you don’t have to sit on the floor trying to set it — or you can just use the preset program.

The thermostat is rated for 120V and 15A and it only works with products that automatically start after cycling the power.  So check your manual before you invest $35 to $50 in the WIN100.

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, and at a good price too. There are times when I want to control an appliance (heater, fans, heat lamps, etc) by room temperature and this little device fills the bill perfectly.

    I also have a few of these. Got them a few years ago when I moved into a house without central A/C. Use them in the Summer for the window A/C’s, and in the Winter for space heaters. Easy to program, reliable, and I think under appreciated. I use another in the Winter to turn off my garage dehumidifier when the interior temp drops below 50 degrees.
