Richard give me just a few moments on this.What type od system do you have (Gas, elect heat or heat pump)?

Expert:  airheatman replied 2 years ago.

The Ritetemp is not a real good thermostat.Are you wanting something like a Honeywell?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Gas. Honeywell would be fine if it uses the same wires as the Ritetemp.
Expert:  airheatman replied 2 years ago.

I like the Honeywell line.

If you do not care for touch screen the RTH6350 is an excellent choice for about 50 bucks

If you prefer touchscreen the RTH 8500 is a great choice for about 100 bucks

The mounting screws should line up with your old holes in wall on either one and both will wire the same
