Thinking about maintaining the temperature of an enclosed area? Maybe you want to detect temperature changes in your enclosed area be it a room, house, office, gym or class. A thermostat does these functions using a system that involves valves, switches, relays, etc. Electrical signals are generated by the thermostat when the temperature falls below or goes above the desired threshold depending on the prevailing conditions like summer or winter. The signals are generated to control the flow of electric current to a heating or cooling unit or the flow of a cooled or heated liquid or gas into the area it serves. Generally, thermostats can be classified on a technical basis or based on features and functions. This article focuses on the latter classification. Here we zero in on which type of thermostat is the most suitable for you; a smart thermostat or a programmable thermostat.
These thermostats basically learn. That is, they learn your living and working habits and their corresponding temperatures. Their features include:
This device adjusts the temperature in your house automatically according to the present times. This conserves energy while minimizing the temperature when you are not at home and maximize the temperature when you are home. Some enable you to program different temperature settings while other models enable you to program them to adjust temperature for different days and times of the week.
Programmable thermostats help reduce the energy losses arising from temperature variations. This is applicable throughout the year.
