THE BASICS OF THERMOSTATS - Comfort First Heating And Cooling

The Basics Of Thermostats

There are so many technological advances we take for granted living in the 21st century. One of those great modern amenities is the modern thermostat for your air conditioner.

How Do Thermostats Work?

To put it simply, thermostats are able to detect the temperature of a space, and afterward deliver a signal to your cooling and heating equipment to adjust the temperature until it reaches your desired set point.

The mechanics of the adjustment can vary based on the specific hardware your thermostat is connected to. Commonly A/C works by turning on a fan when the temperature gets too high. For heating, the thermostat might turn the fan and burner on to raise the temperature, and then turn it off once the desired temp is achieved.

Types Of Thermostats

There are three main types of thermostats: ones you can program, ones you can’t, and ones that are smart.

Programmable thermostats make it easy to keep your equipment on a sensible schedule for your lifestyle. The flexibility lets you use less energy when you’re not home, or automatically cool your home down at night. Overall, it’s an easy way to save on energy costs without having to remember to manually adjust your settings before bed

Non-programmable thermostats are more traditional — users have to input temperature changes manually. In other words, if you want the system to work less while you’re away, you’ll have to remember to change it before leaving.

Smart thermostats are similar to programmable thermostats, but with additional features. Most can learn your individual behaviors to optimize your schedule and energy costs. They’re also usually paired with an app that allows for out-of-home usability. So, if you want to monitor your home while you’re on vacation, a smart thermostat makes it easy to do just that.

Had these folks install a couple of whole home dehumidifiers for me. They were prompt, courteous, professional, and efficient. During the installation, several deficiencies were identified from the previous installers of the existing HVAC equipment and rather than step back or charge extra, they rolled up their sleeves and took care of the problems (that they…
