The Benefits of Using a Thermostat
A thermostat is a device that controls the heating and cooling systems installed in your home. It regulates temperature by turning them on and off when the temperature rises above or falls below the temperature you’ve programmed.
In addition to keeping your home at a comfortable temperature, programmable thermostats can help you save money by shutting off your heating or cooling systems during the hours you and your family are away from home.
