Mercury Double-switch thermostat
Double-switch thermostat.
This is a mercury tilt switch thermostat that contains two separate mercury tilt switches, one that tilts on when it gets too cold and one that tilts on when it gets too hot. This lets you set the heating and cooling systems to different temperatures.
