Thermostats and the advantages of how far they have come


Technology is growing rapidly especially in the heating and cooling industry.

When I visit my grandparents they have a turn dial for their thermostat.

It is not digital at all and I feel that it is not as accurate. According to my HVAC technician these turn dial thermostats are not as accurate as digital ones that are installed into homes today. My parent’s have a digital thermostat and they actively use it throughout the seasons, changing the temperature up and down to their liking. Even though they’ve only had their HVAC system and thermostat for ten years now, new technology has been replaced once again. There are now smart thermostats that can be controlled practically anywhere (whether you are in your house or not) through a smart device. This is something that I will be buying when I get a house someday. The conveniency of these thermostats are quite remarkable. If I like my temperature lower while I sleep, but like it a few degrees higher when I wake up, I can grab my phone and control it while I’m in bed so I don’t feel the chilliness of the set temperature from the night before. Not to mention there are a lot of add ons with certain brands of smart thermostats. You can buy a device that allows you to control all of the light fixtures in your home as well that hooks up to the same app as controlling your heating and cooling. Technology for the HVAC industry is making things a lot more efficient and accessible for those who are always on the go, like myself.
