Today’s thermostats are very different from the standard dial and slide thermostats many of us are familiar with. In fact, thermostats today are so much more functional than the standard manual ones that you could be losing out on energy savings. As we head toward the heating season in Los Angeles, many people look for ways to be more energy efficient. One often overlooked but easy way to become more energy efficient is with an upgraded thermostat. Upgrading your thermostat provides a number of benefits for both your heating and cooling systems, and hiring a trained professional from JW Heating & Air ensures that your new thermostat will be installed correctly and efficiently. Call us today.
Types of Thermostats
There are 3 main types of thermostats you can choose for your home, and each helps your heating in its own way:
- Digital – one of the main problems with an outdated, manual thermostat is that it can be difficult to set a precise temperature, which can affect your energy usage. With a digital thermostat, this precision is part of the mechanics, as well as intuitive, easier to read buttons.
- Programmable – programmable thermostats have the benefits of a digital thermostat, but take capability to another level with programming. You can set a schedule for heating your home that accommodates for workday schedules, weekends and even vacations. Most programmable thermostats have a maximum programmability of 7 days, and you can loop the 7 days if needed.
- Smart – if you are looking to monitor and track your energy usage, a smart thermostat may be for you. Using smart technology, you can access your thermostat via an app from virtually anywhere using a simple app. Smart thermostats are programmable and can create energy usage reports that can help you save energy.
