Many people wait to change out their thermostats until they absolutely have to. They wait until the thermostat completely ceases to work, or until they can no longer read the display. But this means they are living with an inefficient, inconvenient thermostat for many years—decades in many cases we’ve seen.
New Developments in Thermostat Technology
Thermostats have advanced significantly over the years. Decades ago, your thermostat would have been operated manually, either with a dial or a sliding notch that hovers over the temperature you would prefer. This makes things difficult. It’s tough to tell if you’ve got the temperature exactly where you want it, and you have no options other than to keep readjusting as needed.
Digital thermostats helped improve temperature accuracy with clear screens. But soon after this development in thermostat technology came programmable models. Now, you can adjust the temperature ahead of time. Many allow you to adjust differently for the weekends than for the weekdays, and to make many changes throughout the day.
Now is the perfect time to replace your thermostat, however, thanks to the innovation of smart thermostats.
Smart thermostats connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. That way, you can check up on the temperature from your smart phone, from wherever you are. Better yet, you can make adjustments, even while you are at work or at a school event. And you don’t have to worry about it wasting energy while you are not home.
