Thermostats are looking better if not performing better these days. In the attached pdf file, you will find four thermostats and their features. These look so much better than the days of the rectangle or round thermostats with the mercury bubble and can do so much more. These techno-stats make it easy to set your temperature, Wi-Fi capability, digital picture frame (important as you pass it in the hallway) and for some models, control it by using your Smartphone when you are away from home.
