It's important to identify the HVAC system your home relies on when choosing the right thermostat model. The two thermostat voltages are:
- Line voltage thermostats: these are used to regulate systems that use electricity to heat homes, such as baseboard heating.
- Low voltage thermostats: these control systems of which depend on central furnaces, boilers, or heat pumps.
After identifying which type your home depends on, it’ll come down to selecting the thermostat that offers the best function for your family.
Types of Thermostats
These are the most common type and must be manually adjusted, as the name suggests. They cannot be regulated by Wi-Fi but are the easiest and least expensive to install, making them a popular option for homeowners everywhere.
Although operated similarly to manual brands, these thermostats can be adjusted to pre-schedule temperatures, allowing homeowners to plan accordingly. If you’d like your house to stay cool at night but become warmer in the morning when you wake up, simple programming is all it takes to reach the temperature you desire.
These can be accessed and adjusted through Wi-Fi or smartphone apps, allowing homeowners to easily change the climate within their house at just the touch of a button. They are the newest and most innovative type of thermostat, quickly adapting to your needs so that they can fully be of service.
Additional features available on modern thermostats include:
- Indicator lights
- Vacation mode
- LED and touch screen controls
- Night mode
Why are Thermostat Upgrades Important?
Replacing your current thermostat with a newer model, such as a smart or programmable system, can help save you money. Not only are they more efficient for your home, but they allow you to control the temperature while away, keeping your monthly heating and cooling bills in check. Don't worry about accidentally leaving your heater on while on vacation - a quick button can solve that, saving you money, energy, and the unpleasant surprise of arriving back to a home that has either become too hot or too cold.
Energy.gov has stated that dialing your HVAC system back 7-10 degrees while away from home or asleep can save you 10% on heating and cooling costs throughout the year. Save money on energy bills this year by contacting Aire Serv for a professional installation today.
