What Is the Best Kind of Thermostat to Buy?

In the world of modern HVAC technology, homeowners now have more heating and cooling options than ever. Nowhere is this more evident than in the improvements to modern thermostats. However, while the variety of choices is exciting, it can also feel overwhelming at times. For more information on what is the best kind of thermostat to buy for your home, keep reading, and remember to call our experienced Grimes HVAC techs at Golden Rule Plumbing, Heating & Cooling for all your essential heating and air conditioning needs.

Popular Thermostat Options

  • Digital Thermostats: Digital thermostats are the standard model for most homes. They are easier to read, provide more accurate temperature measurements, and are generally just less clunky than manual thermostats. If you still have a manual thermostat in your house, or are moving to a new place that has not upgraded yet, you should seriously consider calling an HVAC tech to modernize your home with a digital thermostat.
  • Programmable Thermostats: As the name suggests, programmable thermostats allow for greater customization when it comes to temperature preferences. By programming one of these thermostats around your schedule, the temperature will automatically raise or lower anytime you want, from when you leave for work in the morning to before you arrive home at night.
  • Smart Thermostats: Also known as “Wi-Fi thermostats” because of their wireless capability, smart thermostats allow you even more customization than programmable thermostats. Not only can you set these devices based around your schedule, you can also use them to raise or lower your home’s temperature remotely throughout the day via tablet, smartphone, or computer. Smart thermostats are especially helpful if you’re going to be on vacation or traveling for long periods of time, and want to adjust your home’s thermostat based on pets, the weather, or other mitigating factors.
