A Closer Look at Heating Thermostats

Heating ThermostatsThermostats are used to control the heat in and out of a heating system thus keeping the temperature within a specific area within a predetermined range. A thermometer is used by every thermostat to regulate the flow of heat based on the temperature. To prevent air temperature changes a bi- metallic strip coils. This is either direct or indirect. There is an interchangeable connection between the copper tube and radiator tail.

Thermostat Components

Common sizes for thermostats are 15mm, 10mm, and 8mm. Many thermostats feature night setback mode, up to four time and temperature settings, and indicators for both time of day and system status. Thermostat kits are sturdy and come with components for heating, ventilating, air cooling, and refrigeration systems. Common components for thermostat kits include thermal fuses, defrost timers, thermal switches, motor protector, thermal protector, radiators, and metal links.

Heating Elements

There are many different heating elements that generally include air heaters, tubular and assembly heaters, radiants, hot air generators, cast in heaters, plastic compounding machines, compounds and reactors. There are many other components that may be included such as air cleaners, electrical stoves, insole warmers, and far infrared heating elements.


The maximum temperature setting for a unit is 250J. The thermostat should always be set higher in the summer and lower in the winter. Furnace filters should be cleaned regularly. There should be no flammable materials around radiators such as carpets, drapes, or furniture. Heat resistant radiators should always be used on exterior walls.
