Hi maytermostats,

Welcome to TOC.

The OP explained it in post #4. His "source" was another of those "internet experts" who do not understand the basics.

Your "fans" have nothing to do with the operation of a thermostat?

The "overall benefit" (whatever "overall" means) of a 180° stat is no different than the "overall benefit" of a 120°, a 140°, a 160°, 195°, a 205°, or a 10,000°, thermostat.

The suggestion that poking holes in a perfectly good thermostat can be productive, is evidence that the "author" does not have a clue.

Yeah I think using thermostat with a 180° stat in place of a 195° would be a different subject. I don't know it that would be better...
