That model requires a C wire. Most older houses don't have one. ST models and some wi-fi units don't need a power wire.

It really depends on your use case. I suspect if you're normally home and/or on a normal schedule, you won't see much benefit if any. In my case, however, my schedule is very unpredictable. Having a thermostat which turns on only when I get home, and stays off when I'm gone, probably saves me a lot.

Plus, it's nice to not have to really ever touch the thermostat. It goes on before I get out of bed during the week, and stays off until I get up on the weekends. If I come home late, it goes on for a bit, but if I'm home already, it goes off earlier.

My furnace is really loud, so having it optimized to only go on when necessary is extra useful.

How easy is it to replace an old one with a new model? Do we have to do any wiring if the old model and new one are different brands?

Is a DIY install possible if the house is old? I consider myself pretty handy for non-eletrical stuff, but i dont see good instructions for DIY install on older wiring.

In my opinion, running a C wire is too hard to do. You have to fish it through the wall. But the models that don't require the power wire are a no-brainer installation.

Adding a C wire is easy. All that is required is a 24Vac transformer along with some two-wire cord (thermostat wire). Plug the transformer into a nearby outlet with the c wire plus return from the transformer to the wifi thermostat. I have three of the wifi models hooked up this way and can control them remotely and can also manage them using a SmartThings hub.

Without getting into a debate about what's better (obviously Nest and Ecobee are better, but they're much more expensive), this is a fantastic deal for the price. According CCC, the lowest this has been on Amazon is $49. I just snagged one for one of my duplexes. Thanks, OP.

I assume you have wires running from your thermostat to the electric plug?

Had this in my house for years, until recently upgrading to a Ecobee.

Only complaint is it's "comfort/accuracy" "feature" that kept temp "within a degree" of desired temp. Ended up the furnace or AC unit would kick on and off over and over and over. Not terribly efficient or good for the equipment. Other thermostats tend to let the temp vary a degree or two before turning on equipment, whereas this thermostat is a temperature Nazi.
