Microclimate have been a leading UK manufacture of thermostats for over 25 years, it is clear that they value quality and this can been seen in all of there products. Microclimate use microprocessors in most of there thermostats and this makes them more reliable and accurate as the component count is considerably less. As you would expect Microclimate offer a 5 year manufacturers guarantee as standard. There digital series of thermostats just like there standard thermostats are all manufactured in the UK and come complete with a 5 year guarantee.
Microclimate thermostat are extremely safe and very easy to set, they don't have any protruding control knobs that can be knocked or tampered with ( a very high possibility if you have kids ) instead they are recessed and come supplied with a mini microclimate screwdriver for easy adjustment. In the event something does go wrong they are programmed to fail off, this means your heating device will receive no power and removing the risk from your reptile being cooked alive.
We personally use and recommend microclimate thermostats over all other brands!
