What Determines the Right Thermostat for Your Home?

There are three key questions to deciding on a thermostat to work best with your heating and cooling system, including:

Which features do you want in your thermostat? While a manual thermostat may be cheaper and work well with your home, a Smart of Wi-Fi thermostat can give you features that you really want including the ability to control your thermostat remotely.

Which thermostat works best with your current system? Some heating and cooling systems work better with certain types of thermostats to better increase efficiency and control. Choosing the right thermostat for your system can increase comfort and decrease monthly bills.

How will you use your system and thermostat? Are you ok with leaving your thermostat at a single temperature and changing it manually as needed or would you prefer a thermostat that can change the temperature based on certain times of day all on its own?

    Considering Buying your HVAC System?

    Manual Thermostats: This classic style of thermostat is paired with older systems and has the one primary advantage of being the cheapest of the thermostat types. However, with a manual thermostat, the temperature will remain at the set degree until you physically go and change it.

    Smart Thermostats: Smart thermostats are smart because they can literally learn you, your home and your habits. Not only can you adjust them yourself through a Wi-Fi enabled device, they are also able to adjust based on sensors that can tell when you are home, active, etc.

    A smart thermostat helps keep your home more energy efficient by adjusting temperatures based on how and when you use heating and cooling system. However, their disadvantages include their increased cost over other styles of thermostat and these thermostats are unable to sync with certain systems, meaning their communication abilities will become unavailable.

    Communicating Smart Thermostats: Communicating thermostats take smart technology one step further and make it possible for your thermostat to communicate with the rest of your system. This not only gives you the energy efficiency of a smart device, but also makes it possible to check on the functionality and health of your whole system.
    However, these thermostats are more expensive and can only be used with systems that were made by the same brand.

    Programmable Thermostats: Programmable thermostats have the ability to be programmed to certain cycles such as turning on the heat at a certain time of morning or turning off the air conditioning when you won’t be home. However, this programming must be set up by the user and will not vary unless you change it yourself.

    While these thermostats are cheaper than smart and communicating thermostats, they are more expensive than manual and also cannot be used with all systems. Moreover, they cannot be controlled remotely and do not have the ability to sense changes in the home to modify their schedules.
