During the winter months, nothing is as important as ensuring your thermostat is working at its best. If you have an older thermostat, you may consider replacing it before the really cold nights hit. When looking into purchasing or updating your thermostat, here are the four main types to consider.

Non-Programmable Thermostat

If you have an older system, you most likely have a non-programmable thermostat. This type of system is best for people who only use their thermostat while at home, as you have to manually change the thermostat every time you want to control the temperature.

Programmable Thermostat

This type of thermostat is very common in modern households and very affordable. A programmable system gives you the option to schedule temperature changes for certain times of the day or week to help reduce overuse and unnecessary wear and tear on the system.

Wi-Fi Thermostat

As one of the newer options, Wi-Fi thermostats connect to the internet and are accessible through your smartphone. This allows for remote adjustment, keeping the controls in your hand 24/7 so you can make sure the temperature is just where you want it at any given moment.

Smart Thermostat

Finally, for the newest in heating and cooling technology, we have the smart thermostat. The smart thermostat connects directly to your smart speaker to allow controls from your AI device. Additionally, the smart thermostat takes into account local weather, learns your habits to know when you are at home or away and adjusts the temperature accordingly.
