>A simple programmable one that turns the heat up (how long + 5) mins before the morning alarm is all that is needed.
I have one from Honeywell that does that already. Basically programmed with "at this time, be at this temperature". It learns how long it takes to heat the house from a given starting point. So if it only needs to come up a couple degrees, it fires up a few minutes early. If it needs to come up a lot, it will fire up 30-45 minutes early.
