Asking yourself questions like these can help to narrow down your options and to decide which system will positively benefit your home the most. Here are the most popular types of thermostats available:
Let’s say that you’ll be away from your home for a few hours, but you forgot to change the temperature. Instead of wasting money on heating and cooling when nobody is even home, smart thermostat systems allow you to change the temperature from your very own smartphone. Smart thermostats are a great option for families that want to control temperatures from wherever they are.
These systems connect to your home’s Wi-Fi network and allow you to control the temperature of your home even when you’re not home. Additionally, many models will track your energy usage to give you better control over your heating and cooling bills. Smart thermostats can even learn your temperature preferences over time and automatically adjust temperature settings.
Programmable thermostats essentially allow you to set a schedule around when you’ll need heating and cooling. For example, if nobody is inside your home from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays to Fridays, you can adjust your thermostat higher or lower, depending on the season, so your HVAC system doesn’t run as often. Then, you can program it to kick back on a few minutes before you’ll be home to ensure that your home is back to your desired temperature.
Programming your thermostat can produce significant energy savings while ensuring your home is always at your desired temperature.
A manual thermostat is the most basic type of thermostat on the market. It requires you to manually set the desired temperature on the device. It does not allow you to preset temperatures.
Regardless of which type of thermostat you ultimately decide to have installed, thermostats play an integral part in the overall safety and comfort of your home. Having your system installed correctly will prevent any issues from occurring with your HVAC system or thermostat.
