How can I use a wall thermostat with a heater that already has a built-in thermostat?

If your heater comes with a built-in thermostat but you prefer to use the wall mounted thermostat, you have two options. For the easiest option, turn the built-in thermostat all the way up. This ensures that the heater stays on while also giving full control to the wall thermostat. If you feel comfortable working with wires, you can uninstall the built-in thermostat. This requires a little more work as you must turn off the power to the heater and remove it from the wall. If you do not have experience with electrical work, have an electrician help you.

What is the difference between a programmable and non-programmable thermostat?

A programmable thermostat allows you to set the temperature based on a schedule. For example, in the winter you can set it at a cooler temperature while no one is home, and then have it automatically heat up to the comfortable temperature around the time members of the household arrive home. This saves you time as you don’t need to keep adjusting the temperature every day. It also saves you money and energy because you can set it at a more energy-efficient temperature.

Programmable thermostats typically come in 5-2, 5-1-1, or 7-day settings, which you can program using the backlit displays. The 5-2 setting allows you to set 1 schedule for weekdays and another for the weekend. The 5-1-1 setting allows you to set one schedule for weekdays, one schedule for Saturday, and one schedule for Sunday. The 7-day thermostat allows you to set a different schedule for all 7 days of the week.

Non-programmable thermostats, also known as manual thermostats, cannot run according to a schedule and instead require someone to manually change the temperature. These thermostats use a knob instead of digital displays. With this type, you can easily change the temperature during a sudden weather change. These thermostats work well for people who stay home during the day. Non-programmable thermostats also work well in areas where the temperature stays consistent year-round.

What is the difference between a single pole and double pole thermostat?

While both types of line voltage thermostats, single pole and double pole thermostats differ in that a single pole thermostat has no true “off” setting. A single pole thermostat uses two connection wires and automatically turns the heater on if the temperature drops to a certain point, typically 45 degrees Fahrenheit. When using a single-pole thermostat, keep objects away from the heater since it will activate in the first freeze. If you need the heater turned off for any reason, you must completely disconnect the power to the circuit.

A double-pole thermostat uses four connection wires and can completely shut off, disconnecting itself from the power source. In the event of a freeze, the heater will not automatically switch on from the off position. A programmable thermostat will still change the temperature according to schedule as long as the heater stays on. With a non-programmable thermostat, make sure the thermostat stays on and that you change it to the desired temperature.
