What Are The 4 Types Of Thermostats?

Your HVAC system consists of many units and parts. These devices work together to maintain the temperature in your home. Your thermostat is just one of these home essentials! When the time comes to replace the appliance, it can be a challenge to determine which type to choose.

Island Airco strives to keep your Eureka Springs home comfortable, no matter the time of year! With many options at your fingertips, the thermostat replacement process can seem overwhelming. However, you can count on our professionals to help you with the upgrade process! Keep reading to learn about the different types of thermostats and determine which is best for you.

Different Types Of Home Thermostats

With the help of your thermostat, you’ll never be too hot or too cold. Although they all have the same end goal, each type of home system functions differently. These devices can be separated into four categories.

Manual Thermostats

Manual or non-programmable thermostats are straightforward gadgets. To set and choose your indoor temperature, you’ll need to manually adjust the settings to your preference. They are easy to operate and inexpensive. However, you won’t be able to pre-set your temperature or alter it when you aren’t home.

Programmable Devices

Unlike a manual device, a programmable thermostat can change your home temperature using a programming feature. You can determine how hot or cold you want your home to feel on certain days and times. This can help reduce your home’s energy use and lower your monthly utility bills.

Zoned Climate Control

Have you ever experienced rooms in your home that are warmer or cooler than others? A zoned system splits your home into various sections. This technology will provide different amounts of heat and cool air to certain rooms in your home. Ultimately, it will provide even temperature control to specific areas in your household.

Smart Thermostats

A smart thermostat may not be able to complete complex math problems, but it can provide efficient temperature control for your home! This system offers a variety of features, such as energy reports, remote programming controls and climate adaptation.

Smart devices are innovative, no doubt. However, high-tech thermostats such as these are more costly. Regardless, the gadget can serve as a helpful addition to your home! An HVAC expert can assist you during the decision-making process.

Signs It’s Time For A Smart Thermostat Replacement

No home system lasts forever. Unfortunately, your Arkansas thermostat is no exception. Your machinery can’t verbally communicate when a problem is present. But the device will show signs when something is amiss. A few indicators to look out for are:

  • The appliance won’t turn on or off
  • It reads a different temperature than what your system is producing
  • Your air conditioner is short-cycling
  • You notice consistent temperature shifts
  • Your energy bills are higher than usual
  • The device is more than 10 years old

Your comfort should never be compromised. When the time comes for a smart thermostat upgrade, you need a trustworthy HVAC technician. Our team of professionals can help you determine the best temperature-control appliance for your home.
