How to select the right thermostat for your home There are a few key points that you need to ask yourself before choosing a smart thermostat. Do I need a non-connected, programmable thermostat or a smart thermostat? A non-connected thermostat has simple programming and is more affordable. However, if you would like to have full control over your heating, then a smart thermostat is the perfect option for you. Programmable thermostats work the best when you are away. The reason for this is that the thermostat starts to change the temperature just before you arrive. If you find yourself being at home most of the time, you can set your thermostat a few degrees above normal to make it more comfortable. Does my HVAC System support smart thermostats? The majority of all smart thermostats work perfectly alongside common heating and cooling systems. However, there are a few that do not support a particular heating system, for example, a two-stage heat pump system. You also may have to install separate thermostats if you have separate heating and cooling systems.
