Thermostat controls are at the heart of your HVAC system. At the basic level, HVAC Controls and Thermostats regulate the temperature of the home by signaling the furnace/ heater to go on when the house temperature falls or air conditioner to turn on when temperatures go up. The modern thermostats are designed with advanced technologies such as Wi-Fi capabilities that make it possible to monitor your industrial or home temperatures remotely. Today, HVAC controls and thermostats are grouped into several categories: 1) Manual Thermostats: These are the old types of HVAC controls and thermostats. They are designed to operate with a dial that controls a pre-set temperature range. However, these models are getting replaced by newer models. 2) Digital-programmable thermostats: These HVAC controls and thermostats are designed to operate fully electronically. This means they use sensors
to detect temperature changes and respond accurately. Some of them have wire terminals that allow you to use advanced features such as 2-stage heating and cooling. 3) Smart thermostats: This is another category of programmable thermostats. They monitor how you use them so that with time, they will be able to change the temperature to the recommended levels on their own. They are very useful, especially in time-sensitive facilities. Other types of HVAC Controls and Thermostats include communicating thermostats and digital non-programmable thermostats.
