Are you sure you have the right thermostat for your needs? Real HVAC Services in Maryland provides you with a number of different options for your home. Are you looking for a high-tech thermostat model? Or do you prefer something more manual? Here’s an overview of different thermostat categories:

Mechanical Thermostats
These thermostats use metal strips to respond to temperature changes, with the temperature usually stays within five degrees of your selection. The lower price range makes this a good option for the budget-conscious.

Electronic Thermostats
Digital sensors these thermostats to read the temperature of a room and adjust accordingly. Rooms stay within one degree of your settings.

Programmable Thermostats
The biggest benefit you receive from this thermostat type is the ability to program temperature presets for your home. You can schedule what you want the temperature to be at any point during the day.

Many models allow you to allow the thermostat to auto-adjust based on the outside temperature. That keeps you from needlessly wasting energy that ends up costing you money.
