I have a old thermostat Model T8220 1008 from Honeywell

Customer Question
I have a old...

I have a old thermostat Model T8220 1008 from Honeywell which i need to replace. What do you recommend replacing this with. It is on a hot water heating system.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

The settings yes but I don't know if this manual thermostat has filters. It doesn't work ( doesn't register the correct room temperature thus doesn't heat properly)

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes as it looks like a simple installation.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Would the Honeywell Model CT50 work here?
