Is there anybody here who's done a Minco thermostat install (CT325PD1C1 controller along with a ribbon sensor and an AC relay)? I'm looking for information... I am looking to replace my thermostat (I snapped the copper lead from the bulb) and this might be a nice option if it's not too expensive (vs a few tens of dollars for a stock bulb thermostat)... I am looking specifically for two things: 1/ caveats/instructions on the wiring, 2/ guidance on where one puts the temp sensor (ribbon)? Thermowell? Side of the boiler?
There may also be a better solution for the money, or a cheaper equivalent position... I'd like to improve on the bulb thermostat but am not willing to spend much over $100.
