Thermostats are sensor devices or systems that detect the temperature in a specific physical system or environment. They have a setpoint temperature to which they maintain the system. They are used to heat or cool systems to a specific temperature. Application areas of thermostats include water heaters
, air conditioners, HVAC
(Heating, Ventilation Air Conditioning) systems, kitchen ovens, refrigerators and incubators. There are three main types of thermostats, low-voltage, line voltage and millivolt. Low voltage thermostats shut off when they acquire the setpoint temperature. They are the most suitable and most common thermostats for domestic use. They control home systems like gas and electric forced air furnaces, radiant heat systems, single or multi-stage heat lamps
and air conditioners. They have a step-down transformer accessory that reduces the voltage from 120 volts to around 12 and 24 volts. Examples of low voltage thermostats include mercury bimetallic, programmable and mechanical contact. They are also very easy to diagnose and repair.
