Here’s what you need to know about thermostats

When it comes to your home’s heating and cooling system, it’s important to note that thermostats may be just as important as the system itself. After all, the thermostat is the brains of the operation, allowing you to customize the environment of your home to your liking. However, when it goes out, do you know what type of thermostats that you’ll need to replace it? Have you even thought about it? In fact, there’s not only one type of thermostat, but there are also three main types of thermostats and they all come with their own set of benefits and drawbacks. We’ll break those down below, so you can make a better decision about your home thermostat!

Analog Thermostat

Analog thermostats are your first choice and it’s the oldest choice. In fact, you probably can’t find a “new” analog thermostat on the marketplace today. These thermostats are usually controlled by some sort of dial and they’re temperature readings may be a little off due to it being dated technology. However, when installed properly it can help you somewhat accurately change the temperature of your home.

 

Digital Thermostat

This is the next step up from analog thermostats. It’s got a digital out read, hence the name, and is controlled by buttons. Also, these types of thermostats give you the ability to program your schedule to optimize the efficiency of your system. Most, if any, analog thermostats will not have this feature built into them.

 

Smart Thermostat

Finally, your most intelligent choice is a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats are digital, feature wifi connectivity and give you the ability to become the master of your own universe. With more accurate temperature readings and the help of AI, smart thermostats will learn your habits and adjust the settings according to your comfort.
