Types of Thermostats
Mode of Operation
Thermostats fall into several different categories, the first one based on the type of HVAC system they correspond with:
- Line Voltage Thermostats regulate electric-based systems, such as baseboard heating
- Low Voltage Thermostats regulate centralized systems, such as the gas furnace, boilers, or heat pumps
Once you know what type of operating thermostat your system requires, you can select a thermostat that functions in the way you need.
The least expensive and most basic of thermostats, a manual is a reliable choice for homeowners who want to adjust the temperature themselves.
Programmable thermostats allow you to schedule temperature adjustments throughout the day. For example, you may schedule the thermostat to reduce the temperature at night for sleeping or set the unit to come on at a specific time before you come home from work.
The latest innovation in thermostats is the smart thermostat. These thermostats adapt to your needs and those of the home. For example, the thermostat may adjust when it senses activity in the room or senses that the space is empty.
Smart thermostats are often Wi-Fi enabled, and many may be controllable via a smartphone app. Some models even have voice control.
