Honeywell Thermostat vs. Your Air Conditioner and Furnace: What'

What’s the Difference Between Your Thermostat & Your HVAC?

Breathe Easy. Manage Your HVAC System More Effectively

It’s likely that you interact with your Honeywell programmable thermostat multiple times every day—at least during the warmest and coolest times of the year. Some people are confused, however, because they assume that their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system is the same thing as their programmable thermostat. This is a common misconception, and our HVAC repair experts at Aire Serv attempt to clear it up on this page!

What Is My Thermostat & How Is It Different From My HVAC?

Your thermostat represents the controllable interface that you interact with. This small box is displayed on your wall and allows you to manage your heating and cooling system by setting your desired temperature. The thermostat reads the current temperature in your home and then turns your HVAC system on or off in order to attain your desired temperature.

On the other hand, your system is a large system of equipment that both creates and distributes conditioned hair through your home—both warm and hot. There are multiple types of heaters / air conditioners. The components of these systems and where they are located depend on their type and other variables.

Components of your HVAC system may include:

  • Air conditioner condenser
  • Air conditioner compressor
  • Furnace burner
  • Furnace heat exchanger
