Manual - Conventional dial or lever style of mechanical thermostat. It doesn’t have many features.
Digital - This has a display screen and is often capable of a variety of useful functions.
Stages of Heat
The number of terminals on the thermostat that can be used to individually control separate heating functions. Many furnaces that are called two stage heaters will require at least a two stage thermostat to operate appropriately. You may also choose a multiple stage thermostat when pairing different heating equipment. Such as a heat pump and a furnace.
Stages of Cool
The number of terminals on the thermostat that can be used to individually control separate cooling functions. Some of the higher efficiency air conditioners and heat pumps are designed to use multiple stages of cooling.
The number days per week that the thermostat will be able to individually program. Ex. a 5,1,1 programmable thermostat will have the same program settings on Monday-Friday and will be able to individualize the programming on Saturday and Sunday. A 7 day programmable thermostat will be able to set a different programming schedule for each day of the week.
Use with Heat Pump
Indicates that this thermostat is compatible with heat pumps.
Indicates if the thermostat operates electrically on batteries or power from the furnace/air handler.
A "2-wire Millivolt" system. These are usually gas-fired wall or floor heaters that do not have forced-air blowers. In other words, they are convection heaters.
Use with Gas/Oil
Indicates that this thermostat can be used with either a gas furnace or oil furnace.
Use with Electric Furnace
Indicates that this thermostat is compatible with electric furnaces or air handlers with electric heater coils. The voltage to the thermostat will be the normal 24 VAC. This feature is different from a "Line Voltage Capable" thermostat which operates with 120 to 240 VAC.
Allows for you to establish by schedule when you want your furnace/air handler fan to turn on and off automatically to circulate home air, even without your furnace or air conditioner operating.
Resume / Adaptive Intelligent Recovery Capability
Brings the room temperature back to the programmed temperature at the set time, even when you may have manually over-ridden the program in the interim which will maximize comfort and energy savings.
ENERGY STAR® Qualified
Products earn the ENERGY STAR label by meeting the energy efficiency requirements set forth in ENERGY STAR specifications. The EPA establishes these specifications based on the following set of principles:
Product categories must contribute significant energy savings nationwide.
Qualified products must deliver the features and performance demanded by consumers, in addition to increased energy efficiency.
If the qualified product costs more than a conventional, less-efficient counterpart, purchasers will recover their investment in increased energy efficiency through utility bill savings, within a reasonable period of time.
Energy efficiency can be achieved through broadly available, non-proprietary technologies offered by multiple manufacturers.
Product energy consumption and performance can be measured and verified with testing.
Labeling would effectively differentiate products and be visible for purchasers.
Allows easier viewing of disply screen in the dark.
Outdoor Temperature Sensor Capability
When used with an outdoor air sensor, this features allows the thermostat to sense the outdoor temperature and indicate such on the screen. Also allows some thermostats to automatically decide whether to heat or cool the home based on outside temperatures.
Indoor Temperature Sensing Capability
Some thermostats provide for wiring to an accessory called an indoor sensor. The indoor sensor mounts in the home living space away from the thermostat, and tells the thermostat what the temperature is in that area. The thermostat will then use the temperature from the sensor to indicate the home's current comfort level, instead of just the temperature near the thermostat.
Ventilation Control/Independent Circuit Switching
This feature allow a user to control from the thermostat any other electronic device such as an independent fan.
This feature allows the thermostat to automatically switch from heating to cooling based on the temperature inside. This is useful between seasons when heating may be needed at night, and cooling during the day.
Having this feature will store your set temperature or temperature schedule. In the event of a power failure, you won't have to reprogram the thermostat when the power returns.
Reminds you that it's time to change your furnace or air handler filter.
Humidifier Panel Indication
Reminds you that it's time to change your humidifier pad, which is normally done so annually.
Allows you to control your whole-house humidifier from your thermostat.
Allows you to program your thermostat to operate your heating/cooling system at a minimum when you leave on vacation (to save money), and then automatically return the temperature to a normal comfort setting just before you arrive home. Having this capability will mean that when you return, your house will be nice and comfortable.
Indicates that you may select to allow only individuals who have a numeric code (which you create) to change the temperature or settings on the thermostat. This feature is useful for thermostats located in public spaces, or to keep children from operating the thermostat.
Some units can be accessed remotely from a touch-tone phone or web interface.
