Examining Different Types of Thermostat Devices

Wall-Control Thermostat Devices

What is a thermostat and why is it so important? A thermostat controls heating and cooling systems. Do you like your home to be a specific temperature at all times or maybe just at certain times of the day? Well, this wouldn’t be possible without the help of thermostats. Thermostats regulate the temperature to make sure it is exactly what you want it to be. Fortunately, there are many different types of thermostat devices to choose from. These include manual, programmable, electronic, wireless, and smart and learning. Discover the right thermostat option for you with help from Stephens Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. 


If you’re looking to keep things simple, consider investing in a manual thermostat. With a manual thermostat, you set the temperature to what you prefer, and once it reaches that temperature it will shut off. If you want to adjust the temperature again, making it warmer or cooler, you have to do it manually, hence why it’s called a manual thermostat. 


With programmable thermostats, you can forget about doing anything strictly manual. The thermostat controls the temperature on its own after it is set. Different temperatures can be programmed at certain times of the day or week depending on the weather or personal preference. Having a programmable thermostat is a good way to save money as well as energy. 


Electronic thermostats have the ability to sense when the temperature has changed from its original setting. They can then regulate the temperature of your heating and cooling system. These types of thermostats can be programmable or non programmable, so it’s up to you to decide what suits you best.  


Regulate your home’s temperature from virtually anywhere with a wireless thermostat. There are many benefits to having a wireless thermostat. You can program it toward your lifestyle, when you will be home or out and about. Based on the weather outside, it can adjust the temperature inside. You can set the temperature from a smartphone, making your home warm or cool before you get there. 

Smart & Learning

Smart and learning thermostats are game-changing. These types of thermostats base their heating and cooling around your schedule, from the time you may leave in the morning for work until you come home for the evening, and everything in between. Smart thermostats save you money and help conserve energy by being used efficiently when necessary. You can control the thermostat with your smartphone or a device that is connected to WiFi. You can also use Google Assistant or Alexa to voice any changes to your thermostat.
