Thermostats & Comfort Controllers
Of course, you’re going to put a lot of thought into the type of heating and cooling system you have installed in your home. It’s a big decision and a considerable investment, so you want to make sure you get just the right system. But the one aspect of these systems that many people overlook is the thermostat. Acosta Heating & Cooling can help you pick out the right thermostat for your home comfort needs.
People often mistakenly think all thermostats are alike? How much different could they be? In fact, the type of thermostat you choose can wind up having a significant impact on what you get out of your heating and cooling system and how easy it is to use. Some thermostats are better suited to certain types of systems than others, so you’re best off getting the type that fits your system best.

For some, a conventional wired thermostat will do just fine. These can be either mechanical or electric, but they’re attached to the heating and cooling equipment directly through a system of wires. These types of thermostats do have certain limitations and can be a bit more labor intensive to install, but they’re also often cheaper than some of the higher–tech alternatives out there. And wired thermostats can certainly allow you to set the temperature in your home precisely and accurately.
But just like everywhere else in our lives these days, traditional wired technology is being replaced by wireless alternatives. Wireless thermostats provide precise temperature control and can be installed much more simply than their wired counterparts. This often means lower installation costs, and a greater flexibility in terms of where your thermostats can be placed throughout your home.
Many wireless thermostats also come with remote controls, meaning that you can adjust the temperature in the room without even getting out of your chair. In addition to the convenience factor, wireless thermostats are also thought to contribute to lower energy bills because they let you control your temperature more precisely.
Digital thermostats can be wired or wireless. They’re certainly becoming the preferred type of thermostat these days, as they make it easier to adjust and set the temperature in your home exactly where you want it. And because they’re capable of such precise control, digital thermostats can also help you save money on your energy bill because you won’t be using any more heat than you need to.
Along these same lines, many digital thermostats are also programmable. This means that you can set them to automatically adjust the temperature of your home to different levels at different times of the day. When you’re not home, you don’t need to be heating or cooling your house, but you would like it to be comfortable when you walk in.
With a digital programmable thermostat, you can have the best of both worlds. Simply set your thermostat to heat or cool your home right before the time that you usually get home, and you’ll always walk into a comfortable environment. Plus, you won’t have to pay all those extra energy bills you would incur if you were heating or cooling your home all day long when no one was home.
Multiple Climate Zones
Many newer heating and cooling systems can also support multiple thermostats, giving you even more control over which areas of your home are heated and when. Particularly if you have a large home, you probably don’t need to be heating or cooling the entire thing all of the time. With multiple thermostats controlling multiple climate zones, you’ll be able to keep the occupied areas comfortable while not wasting energy on areas that aren’t in use.
