Thermostats in Gainesville and Ocala
A thermostat is a major component of your heating and cooling system. In fact, many problems relating to your heating and cooling system can be traced back to a defective, outdated, or incompatible thermostat. With a variety of different thermostats available, the team at Stellar Services is here to assist you in finding the thermostat that best suits your needs and your budget.
Types of Thermostats
A programmable thermostat allows you to set specific temperatures at various times throughout the day. Programmable thermostats are a great tool for making your home more energy efficient, as they will alter the temperature when your home is vacant and cool it to your desired temperature when you and your family are home, saving you both energy and money. Programmable thermostats usually have about four buttons, but for those who are more tech-savvy, touch-screen and smartphone compatible options also exist.
Visually, a non-programmable thermostat and a programmable thermostat look very similar. However, with a non-programmable thermostat, you are unable to store any customized settings. The user is responsible for manually changing the temperature and powering on/off the fan. Non-programmable thermostats are very basic, but are still highly effective.
For those who have an older system or prefer less high-tech option, a mechanical thermostat may be for you. A mechanical thermostat is a line voltage thermostat, so it uses metallic strips to sense the temperature and adjust accordingly. While they can only be set to one temperature and require manual changes, they are typically very affordable and easy to install.
