Exploring Different Types of Thermostats for Your Home
You might not think much about the box affixed to your wall other than the up and down buttons when you adjust inside temperatures. However, the thermostat is a critical comfort tool for your home. Whether you are upgrading to a new unit and want to upgrade your thermostat equally, or your current one is malfunctioning, you must consider your options carefully before making the change.
To find the right thermostat, you need to know the different types available.
Here are a few types of thermostats to choose from:
- Non-Programmable: For the strict budget or the homeowner that just does not like programmable thermostats, you still can purchase a non-programmable unit. These do not have day or night program schedules; therefore, you must set the temperatures manually.
- Programmable: A programmable thermostat is easier when you have a routine that takes you out of your home and back frequently. With this unit, you can program it to set temperatures during the day and alter them at night while you are sleeping. You can even set a “vacation” mode.
- Touch Screen: Today, touchscreens are a way of life. Therefore, if you are the high-tech home, you may want a touchscreen thermostat. These are easier to operate than traditional thermostats too, which might be helpful if you are tired of reading owners’ manuals.
- Smart Thermostats: If you are transitioning into the smart home, upgrading to a smart thermostat could be the next step. You can access your home’s comfort system while away, but also control your home’s lights and other automated installations if you have these in place.
