What type of thermostat is best for you?

March 07, 2017


The thermostat is the brains of the heating and cooling system. It controls the temperature, and does so without you having to lift a finger. Once your desired temperature is set, the thermometer keeps your home above that temperature for heat and below it for cool. It triggers your air conditioner or furnace in order to maintain your desired comfort level.

In the world of thermostats, there are many different types you can install to meet your needs. Non-programmable thermostats are the most standard, but programmable and smart thermostats are the latest emerging trends on the market. The best thermostat for you depends on the different needs of your family and home.
