  • Digital Thermostats. A digital thermostat is really as basic as any homeowner should be going in this day and age. Manual thermostats, like dial or slide controlled models, make setting and reading temperatures accurately much more difficult than those with digital displays. We recommend opting for a programmable model that you can set around your own schedule.
  • Wireless Thermostats. Sometimes, convenience really is a deciding factor. With a wireless thermostat, a receiver is hardwired into the HVAC system, the way that your typical thermostat would be. In this case, however, the thermostat can travel the house with you, allowing you to adjust temperatures where you may be.
  • Smart Thermostats. These are the cream of the crop, and the preferred thermostats of those interested in greater energy efficiency, as well as home automation and practical technology in general. View energy usage summaries, adjust your system from a tablet or smart phone, and much more with a professionally installed smart thermostat compatible with your system.
