A Guide to Heating Controls
Heating controls help you to easily regulate your home’s temperature. They are available in a variety of types and with many features that improve their functions and efficiency. The controls themselves turn on the heat automatically, depending on settings obtained by the owner, to make sure maximum comfort is experienced. There are also automatic heater controls that can switch on the heater, off the heat, or cool the air in a room according to preset algorithms.
Intelligent heating controls use sensors to detect changes in the room temperature and adjust the heating accordingly, which ensures the lowest energy bills are paid. With the ever-increasing energy costs, more people are looking for ways to cut their energy bills to save money. Many manufacturers are now producing new, energy-efficient models, with intelligent heating systems that offer greater control and more comfort at a lower price. Some models feature digital control, variable speed fans, and programmable thermostats, which allow you to choose the right settings for specific rooms, such as the bedroom or family room.
The other option is to have a professional come and install the device, which is quite expensive. You may also want to explore the option of using wireless heating controls. In this case, sensors pick up temperature readings from a room and send a signal to a receiver. When this receiver is programmed to the right temperature settings, the system starts automatically.
One type of intelligent heating control uses a dial thermostat to control the heat. A user enters the desired temperature into the dial thermostat and the machine follows that value, adjusting the amount of heat accordingly. The dial thermostat has a memory, so that the next time the desired temperature has been reached, the dial thermostat will turn the heat down until it is again acceptable. Most models offer a one year warranty on the motor and on the wiring.
