Thermostats can help maintain comfortable temperatures in an individual room or an entire building. The types of home thermostats required are often determined by the heating or cooling systems installed. For example, line voltage thermostats are commonly used in rooms with baseboard heaters or other in-room heating units, while low voltage thermostats are capable of operating a wider range of systems.
In addition to the types of heating and cooling systems thermostats can control, manual and digital thermostats manage temperatures differently as well. Manual thermostats require direct temperature adjustments, while many digital, or programmable thermostats, allow operators to set and schedule a variety of temperatures at different times of the day and throughout the week. This flexibility can help save on heating and cooling costs and ensure comfortable temperatures when you expect them.
