Programmable & Non Programmable Thermostats: According to the U.S. Department of Energy, programmable thermostats are the most sensible and in the long run and most economical for your home. You can save as much as 10% a year on heating and cooling by simply turning your thermostat back 7-10 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 hours a day from its normal setting. (If you have a heat pump, don't do this without a programmable thermostat). These thermostats can store multiple daily settings that you can manually override without affecting the rest of the daily or weekend program. The non programmable round thermostat is still in use more than a century. These thermostats are not digital and do not require computers to operate.
Smart / Wifi Thermostats: These thermostats improve energy efficiency and allow you to control the temperature from your computer, tablet or smartphone.
Nest Thermostats: The Nest thermostat is a connected thermostat with an android app that lets you remotely control the temperature. however, Nest thermostats are only compatible with certain HVAC equipment. Ask our NorthStar professionals before getting a Nest thermostat installed in your home.
