Programmable and Digital Thermostats
Heating, air conditioning and refrigeration systems are only as effective as our ability to control them. The best way to do this is through the use of a thermostat. By doing so, your home or business can enjoy less equipment wear, greater trouble-free comfort and more energy cost savings.
There are two types of thermostats used today:
- A programmable thermostat offers maximum comfort, efficiency and convenience. You simply program the temperatures your home or business requires and the times of day you need those temperatures, and the thermostat will regulate your heating and cooling equipment to achieve them. You only need to program it once at the beginning of each season.
- A digital thermostat works much like older, manual thermostats do. A microprocessor inside compares the room’s temperature with the desired temperature you select. It then gives start and stop commands to the heating or cooling system to bring the temperature to the level you’ve selected. It’s up to you to change the settings when you need more comfort.
- Meyer & Depew sells and services Honeywell, Hunter, Lux, Carrier, Helix, Trane and other brands of manual and digital thermostats.
Whether manual or digital, the most important way that a programmable thermostat saves energy is through its setback feature. When you don’t need a normal level of heating or air conditioning, you can program the thermostat to set the temperature back until the next pre-programmed time when you want normal temperatures. Programming temperatures around 63â‚’ F on cold winter nights, for example, when your family is under blankets or your employees have all gone home, can save as much as 15% on your heating costs. Save even more at home by programming your system to “set back” the temperature when everyone is away at work or school, or on vacation. In summer, setbacks work much the same way for central air conditioning.
