Say you have a vacation home or rental, and would like to control the temperature just before the arrival of yourself, family or guests. How is this possible? Call a neighbor and ask them to increase the temperature for your winter lodge so that it’s nice and comfortable for your arrival? Or say you’re renting our your beach condo for a week. Let your guests sweat it out for a few hours till it cools down, is that an option?

You could just leave the heat or air on at the desired temperature the whole time, but that would be very expensive not to mention environmentally irresponsible. So what’s the solution: Telephone Thermostat Controller. This innovative device will allow you to control the heat remotely through a touch tone phone. The controller works with existing phone lines and will even will work with answering machines.

So stay comfortable and do the environmentally responsible thing by hooking up a compatible programmable thermostat with a telephone controller.

When it comes time to replace your thermostat , say with a smart programmable thermostat with energy saving features, you need to know whether to replace it with a line voltage thermostat or a low voltage thermostat.

Line Voltage thermostats are commonly found with electric heating such as with baseboard heaters, electric wall heaters and electric heaters. They use direct current, 120 or 240 volts instead of the usual 24V found in newer homes.

Low Voltage thermostats are the most prevalent thermostats for residential use. 24 Volts is most common voltage type available. If you have gas heating or forced air heating, you likely have a low voltage thermostat.
