Just like all types of heating and air conditioning products, the thermostat has gone through a lot of changes, upgrades and advancements over the last several decades.
- Although any thermostat works to control your central heating and air conditioning system, the more modern thermostat is always the best way to go in many cases.
Way back in the beginning of central heating and air conditioning, you had those simple dial thermostats, and you had the box looking thermostats that were all set by turning the dial, or, for the box looking thermostats, they were set by sliding a little plastic bar looking thing. The box looking thermostats were possibly the worst kind of thermostat as they would break pretty easily. Then, came the invention of the digital thermostat. The digital thermostat is sort of where we are still at today, and depending on the type of digital thermostat, these are the best working ones yet. However, if you have a digital thermostat that requires a battery, this can cause headaches sometimes when the battery goes low or dies. It can make it so your central heating and air conditioning system doesn’t work. Then, there’s the smart thermostat. The smart thermostat is really awesome. It can be controlled from anywhere in the entire world through an app on your cell phone or computer. Also, the smart thermostat is for sure the best thermostat to have if you are looking to accomplish a lot of energy savings in your home. The future is here, and as you see, it’s givin many benefits to the world of heating and cooling.
