What Are the Best Thermostats Currently Available?

Without your home’s thermostat, your HVAC system wouldn’t know where to begin to keep you comfortable. Also, using the best thermostat has its perks, including better energy efficiency and comfort according to your lifestyle. Are you using the best thermostat for your needs? Read on to find out!

Manual Thermostats

Manual thermostats are no-frills models that adjust cooling and heating requirements based on one temperature setting. As the word manual suggests, you must flip a switch or turn a dial whenever you need to change the setting.

Programmable Thermostats

A step up from manual thermostats, programmable thermostats use a digital interface for more precise adjustments and program controls. Programmable thermostats allow you to program setting changes based on the time and temperature you desire. This means you don’t have to worry as much about adjusting settings when you leave your home or go to bed.

Wi-Fi and Smart Thermostats

When you design a programmable thermostat to be adjusted remotely via computer, tablet, or smartphone, you have a Wi-Fi or smart thermostat — and perhaps the best thermostat. Wi-Fi and smart thermostats use your home’s wireless internet connection and an app interface to offer you features unavailable with traditional thermostats. Popular features include:

  • Interfaces. An intuitive interface through an app or the thermostat allows you to breeze through settings and features.
  • Learning. Smart thermostats learn your temperature preferences so you don’t have to program settings. This is the best thermostat feature for some households.
  • Zoning. Some models offer zoning sensors that detect when a room is occupied and adjusts the temperature accordingly.
  • Scheduling. Wi-Fi thermostats may be programmed to change the temperature based on your temperature settings and the time of day.
  • Filter reminder. Do you forget to change the air filter when you should? The best thermostats should offer basic change-filter alerts to help your HVAC system operate more efficiently and last longer.
  • Geofencing. This feature allows your thermostat to track your location to adjust home temperatures according to your arrival and departure.
