Why the Location of Your Thermostat is Important
The best thermostat for you will depend on your lifestyle and comfort level in varying house temperatures. While automatic and programmable thermostats save energy, a mechanical thermostat can be very effective if you diligently regulate its setting. After deciding on a specific thermostat model, keep in mind its location. After all, where you place the unit can affect its efficiency and performance. Always keep these considerations in mind when deciding on a location for your thermostat:
- Place your thermostat away from direct sunlight, drafts, skylights, or windows.
- Carefully read the manufacturer's installation instructions. Failure to do so can cause unnecessary cycling or incorrect readings.
- Make sure the thermostat is in a location that's convenient enough for easy programming.

Thermostat Buying Tips
Your home thermostat may be one of the most important yet overlooked appliances.Thermostats perform one simple, yet essential function: they connect your room temperature to the output of your heating or cooling system. Thermostats are basically heat activated switches with temperature sensors. Depending on your desired comfort settings, these switches will either interrupt or complete the electrical circuit that runs your home heating or cooling system.
Which Type Do You Need?
With the exception of a multiple stage system that requires a special multi-stage thermostat, your thermostat choice will probably boil down to your personal preference. Are you looking for a digital programmable thermostat with all the bells and whistles or do you prefer a value priced, no-frills mechanical thermostat ?
If price is what really matters, a mechanical or manual thermostat will probably be your best bet. But if want more control or are looking to save money on your energy bill, consider a high-endprogrammable thermostat .
