Nowadays, choosing a thermostat is like choosing a cellphone…they all have different features, looks and prices. It is best to choose what is most appropriate for your lifestyle!
Below, we will discuss the different types of thermostats we most often install and their individual features. At Moore’s Air Conditioning and Heating, our brand of choice is most often Honeywell…sleek in design and simple to use! Honeywell has thermostats designed to function with many different units, and with many different end-users in mind.
Honeywell T-4 and T-6 Thermostats
Honeywell T-4 and T-6 thermostats can be used for conventional or heat pump units, and are what we most commonly use. Although they are not touch screen, they are very simple to use with only a few buttons along the bottom of the screen. Both of these thermostats are programmable with the ability to create schedules for 5 or 7 days of the week, whichever best fits your lifestyle. The schedules can be turned off or adjusted very easily, should you need to adjust for travel, holidays and different seasons throughout the year. Scheduling your thermostat can be beneficial for many reasons. Most importantly, it will help lower your electric bill, in most cases. Often, people turn their air conditioner down to a lower temperature at night, and forget to turn it back up before they go to work in the morning, therefore, making their air conditioner work hard in the heat of the day when nobody is home. An additional feature, that many of our customers with young children love, is the lockout feature. The lockout feature provides you with a code that has to be used to change any of the operations of the thermostat, therefore, only those who know the code are able to make changes. These two thermostats are simple, efficient and sleek in design.
Honeywell T-6 Pro Wifi Smart Thermostat
The Honeywell T-6 Pro Wifi Smart Thermostat has all of the same features, and works the same, as the T-4 and T-6 thermostats, with a few added benefits. This Wifi enabled thermostat allows you to connect to your home internet, and control the thermostat through your phone, no matter where you are! Just download the Honeywell app and connect your thermostat using the code provided on your device, after powering on. The app will display an image of your exact thermostat, making it very easy to use. This thermostat has the scheduling option as well, but if you do not want to use that feature, the wifi feature will help you control the temperature of your home while you are away. The lockout feature is also available. The Honeywell T-6 Pro Wifi Smart Thermostat is completely touch screen and simple to use!
Honeywell T-6 Pro Z-Wave Thermostat
The Honeywell T-6 Pro Z-Wave Thermostat offers all of the same features as the T-6 Pro Wifi Smart Thermostat, and is designed to work with any Z-Wave compliant controller. This thermostat can be connected through an app to other Z-Wave Smart Applications in your home, such as an alarm system, security cameras or light bulbs. It is one of the most technologically-advanced thermostats that we sell at Moore’s Air Conditioning and Heating.

There are many brands and types of thermostats, each with different features and benefits.
