What are Thermostats?
Thermostats are a control which operate a home or building’s heating and cooling system. They are typically placed midway up a wall in a central location, or in multiple locations throughout the structure if paired with a zoning system.
There are several types of thermostats available, including manual thermostats, programmable thermostats, and smart thermostats. Programmable and smart thermostats are widely preferred by home and business owners, as they offer the ability to program various temperature schedules according to the needs of a family or workplace. These thermostats make energy savings automatic, while smart thermostats provide additional data regarding energy use and enhanced connectivity.
