    I live in an older house and just had all the AC duct redone under the house. It now cools much better than before. I'd like to buy a new wall thermostat that I could program to come on at a certain time and turn off later.

    I've seen Honeywell and Lux on some other sites. Just wondering what you would recommend? Nothing fancy. Just on at X time and off at Y time.

    Also, how much do they typically cost?

    I'd have to recommend going with something that has all the bells & whistles for a few dollars more.
    Go with a 7 day thermostat for greater flexability instead of a 5/2 model.
    Consider one that allows for Offsets and Differentials to have greater control over the furnace-A/C.
    Consider one that also has holiday program settings with override features.
