Dutchman has a full array of quality controls and thermostats to choose from. Our easy-to-read, reliable thermostats may control only temperature, while others may control additional equipment such as humidifiers, air cleaners, and ventilators. Technological advances also allow some thermostats to be controlled by your phone over Wi-Fi, called smart thermostats or Wi-Fi thermostats.
Dutchman also offers a home monitoring service that can control door locks, lights, or electricity and power. By using camera monitoring, you can unlock a door from a cell phone app, or see who unlocked a door at what time.
If you have a programmable digital thermostat, you are able to program different temperatures throughout the day. Summer temperatures should remain within 3 degrees of your ideal comfort setting so humidity will be continually removed from your home. Winter temperatures should remain within 5 degrees of your ideal comfort setting, especially if you have a power humidifier. Digital thermostats typically require batteries while Wi-Fi thermostats typically need electricity to work.
Humidity Only Control: This type of control is based on the humidity percentage. This may be located on the wall near your thermostat, or on the ductwork near your furnace. Clients need to manually change the percentage based on the current outdoor temperature.
Automatic Adjusting Control: This type automatically decreases the amount of humidity as the outdoor temperature drops. In turn, this prevents condensation from forming when it gets colder outside. This type of control has a range of 1-7, with the highest number being the most amount of humidity possible. Because this adjusts automatically, clients do not need to adjust the number as the seasons change.
Thermostat: This could be a feature built in to a thermostat. All our I.A.Q. thermostats have this built in. The setting may be humidity only or also could be the automatic adjusting style. We would be happy to help you with what is best for you.
