Both low voltage and line voltage thermostat are used for controlling heating/cooling systems. Although line voltage thermostats are commonly used for radiant, convection or resistance heaters that are powered by electricity whereas low voltage thermostats are commonly used with central heating systems. A line voltage thermostat uses direct current, 120 or 240 volts, rather than the usual 24V found in newer systems.
How to Tell the Difference:
- Line voltage thermostats have much thicker wires.
- Low voltage thermostats have multiple wires.
Line Voltage Thermostat Benefits
- Standard for most appliances making these a cost effective solution
- Transformer isn’t necessary
- Simple plug and play solution
