Here are the types of thermostats you can find at Ring's End:
Smart thermostats like the Honeywell Lyric automatically control your home's temperature for your maximum comfort and energy-efficiency. These types are usually WiFi-connected platforms that let you control the temperature through your smartphone or tablet. You'll also receive extreme weather alerts and reminders for when it's time to change your HVAC filters.
WiFi enabled thermostats are similar to smart thermostats. They usually come with an app that lets you remotely access the temperature controls over a smartphone, tablet or computer. This is handy if the weather takes a turn for the worst when you're away from home. However, they will not make automatic adjustments like smart thermostats.
Programmable thermostats are easy-to-use and let you quickly set the temperature for up to 7-days in advance. With different settings for different periods of the day, you can set your temperature preferences to match your schedule and reduce your energy usage.
Non-programmable thermostats like the Honeywell CT30A have been the industry standard for over 50 years. As they're non-digital, they're incredibly easy to use and you never have to worry about the batteries running out.
Most thermostats are designed to work with low-voltage electrical systems. Unless your home has an electric baseboard heating system or floor/wall heaters, there's a good chance your home is on a low-voltage system, too.
Thermostats last for around 10 years until they are affected by wiring and dust accumulation. However, any time you replace your HVAC system, you should also replace your thermostat.
Usually, you can replace your thermostat with most models on the market. However, be sure to look at the packaging as it should say which HVAC systems it's compatible with.
The most common signs of a bad thermostat are when you notice a recent spike in your energy bills, experience temperature fluctuations, or your HVAC system will not turn on or off.
To check if your thermostat is accurate, tape an accurate thermometer next to it on the wall. Wait 15 minutes and then take a reading. This should be done once a year at the start of fall.
