While you might own an up to date home, with energy-efficient walls or windows that don’t allow excess air in or your home is facing in a way that you get natural sunlight and warmth every day. Even your roof is done properly you have been using materials that reflect sunlight and don’t allow heat to get trapped in your attic but what about your interior? Is that up to date as well? Most important element of your home is the internal temperature, which is regulated by a thermostat. Well, what is a thermostat? It is a component which senses the temperature of a system so that the system’s temperature is maintained near the desired set point. It regulates the temperature so that it is never too hot or too cold inside your home. It is important since it saves you money on heating and cooling bills. That is why we at Green Energy Solutions, can’t highlight enough saying how the thermostat is the main control unit for a heating or cooling system. And it isn’t just used in homes but in applications ranging from ambient air control, to such as automotive coolant control, and is also used in many other applications, such as an electric clothes iron.
Basically, it is a “closed loop” control instrument, which seeks to reduce the error between the measured temperatures and desired by the user. Using sensors and control action elements temperature is regulated. This handy little device controls the heating and air-conditioning systems in your house – the two pieces of equipment that use the most energy, and the ones that have the biggest impact on your comfort and quality of life. It is important that your thermostat is in working order or excessive energy is going to be spent on heating up your home which leads to higher energy bills but also to imbalance of your home environment.
