Thermostat Types

There are several different types of thermostats on the market today, and each has its own benefits:


Digital thermostats have easy-to-read faces and a precision of temperature control which you won’t get with a slide or dial thermostat. Upgrading to a digital thermostat can help reduce energy use, which may help lower monthly energy bills.


A digital programmable thermostat allows you to program, in 7-day loops, the cooling for every day. You can program for daytime and nighttime, for times of day when no one is home and any other type of scheduling you may need. With a programmable thermostat, set up your program once and let the thermostat do the rest.


A wi-fi thermostat connects to your home’s internet outlet and allows you to monitor, manage and program your temperature settings from any kind of smart device. Most wi-fi thermostats come with a free app you can easily download for remote access.
