Types of Analog and Digital Thermostats
- Analog controls were used from the 1930s through the early 1990s. Unfortunately, these products contain mercury bulbs that require special handling and disposal methods to prevent environmental contamination.
- Digital models use thermocouples and printed circuit boards to sense the ambient temperature and to control your HVAC system. Basic models display the current temperature, the set temperature and the unit’s setting.
- Programmable thermostats, the next improvement, let residents program a preset heating and cooling schedule using a seven-day or five-two setup. When used properly, they can lower your annual heating and cooling bills by $150.
Heat Pump Thermostats for Increased Efficiency
Heat pumps are different than other HVAC systems, so they require special controls. Heat pump thermostats use adaptive intelligent recovery technology. This prevents the system from using the auxiliary heat strip so that you can save energy and lower your utility bills all year.
Saving Money with Smart Thermostats
Smart thermostats work well with conventional and high-performance HVAC equipment. If you have a variable-speed unit, the control panel will automatically adjust the fan and compressor for optimal efficiency. Now, Wi-Fi controls also function as a bridge for home automation devices that control the lights, open and close the blinds, or monitor your security system.

Older analog thermostats weren’t accurate, and they posed safety risks due to their mercury content. Early programmable models were so difficult to use that Energy Star revoked their certification because homeowners were using the override setting frequently and weren’t saving the amount of money advertised. Today’s controls feature intuitive designs that are easy to use.
Smart controls can adapt to your schedule and learn your preferred home and away temperatures so that you can avoid the programming process. Independent studies show that homeowners who switched to a smart thermostat lowered their heating costs by 10 percent and slashed their cooling bills by 15 percent.
