A thermostat is an important component of any home heating or cooling system. Via the thermostat, users are given the ability to control the surrounding air temperature in one or more rooms, prompting the system to dispense more warm or cold air as needed (or turn itself off if the optimal temperature has already been reached). Global Heating & Cooling in Chicago is your quality source for thermostat installation and repairs.
The job of the thermostat is to maintain a desired temperature. Thermostats are used alongside of most heating systems, air conditioners, and HVAC systems. While thermostats have been in existence in one form or another since the early 1600s, most thermostats these days are contain a digital sensor and do not contain a mercury switch like older varieties. In 1883, the first electronic thermostat was invented. There are four main types of sensor technologies found in modern thermostats:
Either pneumatic signals, electrical signals, or direct mechanisms communicate with the sensors, prompting temperature regulation.
Digital thermostats rely on semiconductor devices to measure temperature and typically display information on an LCD screen. It is common for modern thermostats to offer homeowners additional features such as energy conservation settings, touch screens, timers, date, and time. To ensure that your home is always heated properly, and to just the right temperature (and that electricity, heat or cold air is never wasted), an efficient fully functioning thermostat is a necessity.
