Thermostats & Home Automation Controls
What's the best thermostat for your home?
Ask the industry experts. Thermostats used to be that simple up and down device on the wall, that turns HVAC systems on and off. This system is still viable if you have old basic heating and cooling equipment in your home.
However, with the advancement of HVAC systems, modern systems have evolved into more robust, and energy-efficient systems. The controls (thermostats) are now built to accommodate the new HVAC systems, which older thermostats may not be able to support and run every feature in a modern HVAC system.
Always consult a certified HVAC professional before you make a thermostat purchase. The general recommendation is not to use aftermarket thermostats. It is advised to install equipment matching brand controls, to properly support your home's heating and cooling system.
