The thermostat in your home is often the only way that most homeowners and their families interact with the heating system. For this system, that makes this little tool one of the most important parts of your home. In years gone by, thermostats were little more than a switch to turn the heat on or off. However, in the digital age we find ourselves in, thermostats are quite a bit more useful and valuable.
For example, one of the most basic functions of the modern thermostat is being able to set timers on a temperature setting. This allows you to automate your home to a certain extent, for example, setting the timer to lower the temperature while you’re asleep. That’s just scratching the surface, though. Many digital thermostats offer smart home integration, connecting to your WiFi and allowing you to control your home’s temperature, even down to a specific room, from the comfort of your smartphone.
