Of course we still have much work to do to develop this subject even further since troubleshooting thermostats can be very complex. Most people get into trouble when they change their thermostat. Installing a new thermostat requires patience in many circumstances and depends a lot on the whoever installed the old thermostat. Additionally, thermostats have made leaps and bounds since the old mechanical thermostats. A lot of newer thermostats are smart thermostats with WiFi capabilities.

Some newer modern thermostats have borrowed a lot from the Building Automation industry in the programming features. They are much smarter and have the ability to learn things. Things such as smart recovery for a programmable schedule. The thermostat can learn over a small amount of time how long it will take the HVAC system to recover to a comfortable set point before you arrive home or wake up. It will know it takes an hour or even two hours to bring the house up to the desired set point. Some also have motion sensors and set their own schedule. Others have remote monitoring and control so you can change the settings when you are not at home.

In the near future we are planning on developing our thermostat reviews category in our HVAC reviews section of the website. In that section we will give technical reviews of various new (and conventional) thermostats to help you better understand the capabilities of various thermostats and their features.

HVAC Tip - According to studies done by the Department of Energy, 50 percent of the heat loss experienced in the average home occurs through the ceiling. That makes a lot of sense since heat rises. You can reduce that heat loss (heat gain in the summer months) by adding another layer of insulation in the attic. That will hold more heat in our homes for a longer period of time which means the furnace will cycle less. That means you are going to save money. A lot more money than another layer of insulation costs. Additionally, having an attic fan controlled by a thermostat installed in your attic will remove a lot of heat in the summer. This will help you, in addition to having more insulation, reduce heat gain from the attic in the summer.
