Thermostats to Help with Temperature Fluctuations

A thermostat is simply a control panel for your HVAC system that allows you to adjust the temperature in your home. It can also be programmed to automatically make adjustments for you as the temperature fluctuates during the day. There are a few varieties of thermostats and finding the right one for your home could help save money on your energy bill.

Manual Thermostats

Manual thermostats are typically found in older homes. They are less expensive but are limited in controls.

Programmable Thermostats

Programmable thermostats can adjust the temperature in your home automatically. Advanced models can change between heating and air conditioning depending on the season. They are easy to operate and can help make your home more energy efficient by maintaining a constant temperature.

Smart/Wi-Fi Thermostats

Enter modern times. Everything has built-in Wi-Fi so why not your thermostats? “Smart” or “Wi-Fi” thermostats allow you to control the temperature remotely from an app on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Some have the capability of learning your behavioral patterns and adjust themselves accordingly. Smart thermostats can even show your energy consumption in real-time making it easier to manage your heating and cooling costs.

Choosing the right thermostat for your home will depend on what type of heating and cooling system you have, how you want to use it and the features you need.
