That’s a good question, but we cannot recommend one brand in particular or identify the best electronic thermostats on the market.
However, we can recommend programmable electronic thermostats. Compared with conventional bimetallic thermostats, they can help you save up to 10% on your annual heating costs and they automatically control the temperature according to a pre-set schedule. As a result, you can lower the temperature at night and when you’re at work. This produces substantial savings on heating costs (up to 4.5% when you turn the temperature down 3°C for eight hours) without sacrificing comfort.
New, “smart” thermostat models have recently become available on the market.
Until recently, most of these thermostats were exclusively designed for central heating systems. However, over the past few months, a variety of new models for baseboard units have appeared on the Québec market.
It is now possible to buy these thermostats online, in home renovation centres and even in certain electronics stores. Visit the electronic thermostats section of our Web site for more information on the options that will help you save energy and increase your comfort.
