Most people don’t think about pairing the right thermostat with their HVAC system, but you could be missing out on a number of advantages if your new HVAC system is connected to an old thermostat. Having an outdated thermostat is similar to using a push mower to mow your lawn instead of using a power mower. They both cut the grass, but the power mower makes it easier and does it better; the same goes for using an updated thermostat. What are your choices when it comes to upgrading? Here is a general overview:
One of the most important benefits that a digital thermostat offers your home is precise temperature setting. On the surface, this may not seem like a big deal, but when you consider that each degree you can lower your thermostat in winter and raise in the summer can equal a 3% savings, you can see where precision quickly adds up. Digital thermostats also have intuitive buttons and a very readable face, making them user-friendly.
A programmable thermostat has the above-mentioned benefits, with the additional benefit of programmability. Being able to program your heating and cooling can save you a great deal of energy, which will translate into monetary savings with your monthly bills. You can set a program that will last up to 7 days, and if you are in a set routine, you can loop the program for continuous use.
If you are looking for ultimate level of control over your HVAC system and want to be able to access the system from just about anywhere, then a smart thermostat is for you. With a smart thermostat, you can program your heating and cooling, track energy usage, create reports and adjust your usage from any smart device at any time. A downloadable app allows you to access your HVAC system from anyplace there’s wi-fi, so whether you are in your cellar in Stamford, CT or a wine cellar in France, you can manage your home’s comfort.
