Thermostats come in a variety of styles and options. There are thermostats that have been around for decades and feature a simple on/off control and an analog range of temperatures. More modern thermostats are highly programmable for both convenience and efficiency. Some of them can be controlled at a distance and will remind you when maintenance is needed or if there are problems.

Selecting the type of thermostat you want

We typically get this question from Portland homeowners: “What sort of thermostat do I need?” It truly relies on your primary requirements.

 

1. Manual thermostats

Also called “mechanical” or “non-programmable” thermostats, manual thermostats are the most common type of thermostat. You should manually change it to turn your HVAC system on and off and control the temperature level.

You can purchase 2 kinds of manual thermostats:.

  • Digital: uses arrow buttons to control temperature.
  • Analog: has a dial to change temperature level.

The drawback to manual thermostats is that some models aren’t the most precise when it concerns temperature control. In truth, some manual thermostats have about a +/- 3 ° differential, while other kinds of thermostats just have a +/- 1 ° differential.

 

2. Programmable thermostats

Programmable thermostats do just what their name suggests: they can be configured to save you cash on your energy expenses. In reality, according to Energy.gov, programmable thermostats can conserve you approximately $180 annually in lower energy expenses.

For instance, if you’re at work 5 days a week for 8 hours, that’s 40 hours every week throughout which you can call back your A/C or heating system to save you cash. And sure, you can turn your HVAC system off with a manual thermostat, however that means you’ll always come home to uneasy temperature levels.

A programmable thermostat fixes this problem by informing your HVAC system when to turn on/off and to what temperature, so you do not have to do it by hand.

 

Here’s how it works

If you leave your home at 8 am and don’t come back until 6 pm, you can program your thermostat to instantly raise or lower (depending on the season) your home’s temperature by 10 ° right at 8 am. Then, you can set it to instantly go back to comfortable temperatures at 5:30 pm so that the house is comfy by the time you get home.

 

3. Smart thermostats

Smart thermostats are programmable thermostats taken to the next level of connection and comfort. You can manage these thermostats from your computer system, tablet or phone which suggests you can change your home’s temperature level remotely.

Though they are the most pricey, these thermostats have the very best convenience features and also cut your energy expenses.

Some convenience includes you can discover on clever (and some programmable thermostats) include:

  • Touch screen display screens.
  • Voice directions and alerts.
  • Dirty air filter alerts.
  • Multiple programmable schedules (weekday, weekend, trip, etc.).
  • Schedule “learning” abilities (where the thermostat discovers your daily schedule automatically instead of you needing to program it).
