Picking the right thermostat for your home is an important decision. There are a variety of different options on the market today, so how do you know which one is right for you? Here are some basic tips on finding which kind of thermostat is right for your home.
There are two basic types of thermostats: programmable and manual. Both of these work with gas, electric, or oil furnaces, and can also help control air conditioning.
Manual thermostats: These are most common in older homes and have simple controls. However, these types of thermostats do not offer a lot of energy savings. They are very inexpensive and easy to operate and definitely do the job, but if you’re looking for thermostats that will help provide comfort as well as savings on the utility bill, these probably isn’t the best option.
Programmable thermostats: These types of thermostats are perfect for programming various temperatures throughout the day. Some models can switch back and forth between heating and air conditioning and they are extremely energy efficient, which means you can save significant money on your heating and cooling bills. You can program the thermostat to turn off or on at certain parts of the day, depending on what you need and when you need to use it. For example, if you’re at work all day, you can program the thermostat to turn off. Or, when you’re asleep, you can turn it to an energy saving temperature and can readjust it once you wake up to your desired temperature.
