The COMFORT SYNC control gives you remote access to your HVAC system and offers real-time weather reports as well as controlling the home's hvac systems. The controls have NUVANGO skins available in a variety of colors and patterns to make the unit blend into the decor of your home. They have the ability to communicate with all of the components of their brand of equipment to maximize its efficiency and the control will alert you by email if repairs or routine maintenance is required. They are backed by a good guarantee but the controls are only sold and installed through their authorized dealers. armstrongair.com

ARTICCO-----------------------1*----------NA

This brand offers basic electronic thermostats. Their website is not much help and does not have a stated warranty policy. articco.com

AUBE----------------------------3*----------NA

This company is owned by HONEYWELL and the thermostats are backed by a decent guarantee. The TH141 is a basic  seven day programmable thermostat that is battery powered and works with standard hvac systems. aubetech.com

BOSCH------------------------NA------------2*

Their Greensource controls offer four stages of heating and two cooling stages. They feature a large touchscreen with maintenance and repair warnings and can be battery or system powered. They are backed by a good guarantee but are only available through authorized installers. bosch-climate.us

BRAEBURN-------------------4*------------2*

This brand offers a wide range of thermostats from the simple mechanical controls to touchscreen models. The 1000 model is a non-programmable unit that can be powered by batteries or hardwired into the hvac system and it is backed by a good guarantee. The 2000 model is a basic programmable model for controlling simple furnace/ac systems while the 5200 model can be used for modern two stage heating and cooling systems. The 6300 model is a universal touchscreen model that is backed by a good warranty but it does not control indoor air quality accessories. The 7320 BlueLink control is a premium thermostat that is backed by a pretty good guarantee. braeburnonline.com

BROAN----------------------1*-------------NA

The iQ DRIVE controller is designed to communicate with the different parts of the heating and cooling systems that are made by Nordyne. This allows them to operate at maximum efficiency but the warranty on the thermostat is not very good when compared to other brands. broanhvac.net
