Upgrade the Thermostat To Make a Home Greener
Advancing technology has made possible leaps and bounds in regard to thermostats. While not many homes still have the old manual thermostats with the mercury switch inside, some homes still have the old manual digital thermostats. Not only are these older versions less convenient than the newer thermostats, but they also lack any energy-saving benefits that environmentally-conscious homeowners are looking for. Read on to take a look at the different benefits available for the new thermostats on the market.
Digital and Smart Thermostats
When homeowners are considering a new thermostat, they can choose between a digital and a smart thermostat. There’s no question that digital programmable thermostats are cheaper than their smart counterparts, but that lower price tag comes at an unseen cost. The fact is that smart thermostats are called smart for a reason: they help a home save energy and money.
