It wasn’t too long ago that choices for a thermostat were pretty limited. Thanks to advancements in technology, thermostats have become a primary tool in helping homeowners control comfort levels and energy efficiency, something needed throughout the year. One of the best advancements has been the introduction of digital thermostats. These thermostats can range from simple to smart, accommodating a multitude of needs. They also bring a number of benefits to your home that a slide or dial thermostat simply can’t offer.

Types of Digital Thermostats
As mentioned above, there are a few types of digital thermostats from which to choose:
- Simple digital – this type of digital thermostat is a single thermostat that connects to your HVAC system. The digital face is easily read and can be set precisely, which can go a long way toward saving energy for many households.
- Programmable – digital thermostats that can be programmed offer convenience and even better ways to help conserve energy. A programmable thermostat allows you to set heating and cooling programs for your home for up to 7 days. Most programmable thermostats allow up to 4 temperature changes per day, and you can loop your 7 day program to run continuously. With a programmable thermostat, you can program for times when your home will be unoccupied, such as during the work day, and take care of vacation times. You can even program the system to power up before you arrive home from work. With a programmable thermostat, you won’t have to worry about forgetting to change the setting on your thermostat.
- Smart – smart digital thermostats are the crème-de-la-crème of the thermostat world. These types of digital thermostats offer all that programmable thermostats do, but also have remote access via smart devices, remote programming, monitoring, tracking and some even learn your patterns.
