Since it is equipped with a sensor that constantly analyzes the temperature, the electronic thermostat provides a much more stable and uniform heat. Temperature differences are plus or minus 0.5 ° C (± 1 ° F) for maximum comfort.

Electronic thermostat VS bimetallic thermostat

Electronic thermostats are more accurate and provide greater comfort, while bimetallic thermostats (or mechanical thermostats) cause variations of ± 2 to 4 °C (± 35.6 °F to 39.2 °F) which is not only uncomfortable but also increases your electricity bill.


Here are some examples of electronic and bimetallic thermostats:
