What IS a SPST thermostat?
A SPST switch turns a single circuit on or off. These controls are commonly used in tanks, ovens, cleaning baths, and many other applications and automatically turn off heating equipment when the set temperature is reached.
What is a line voltage thermostat?
Line voltage thermostats are typically used for radiant, convection or resistance heaters that are powered by electricity. They are the type of thermostats to use with our baseboard and wall heaters. Also, you will use a line voltage stat for cove heaters and in-ceiling radiant heat.

How do I know if I need a single or double pole thermostat?
If you see two wires coming out of it in the back you have a single pole. If there are four wires, you have a double pole. If you have more than four wires coming out of your thermostat, you most likely have a low voltage one, which would be used to control a central furnace, boiler, or something similar.
Should I use a single or double pole thermostat?
You can’t turn off a single pole thermostat like a double pole one. Therefore, a single-pole device will always consume energy, whereas a double-pole thermostat can cut your energy costs. Safety. A single-pole device will automatically turn on when the indoor temperature falls below the minimal settings.
What is the difference between a line voltage thermostat and a 24 volt thermostat?
Line voltage thermostats deliver electricity directly to heaters. So, they handle more power than low voltage thermostats that control central HVAC systems like a gas furnace. They work by measuring room temperature and controlling power delivery to maintain a setpoint (the temperature you set your thermostat).
How does an inline thermostat work?
A line voltage thermostat is commonly used to control electric baseboard heaters or a direct-wired electric furnace. It works by turning on the power to the heating and cooling system when the thermostat detects the room temperature is no longer within a few degrees of the desired setting.
How is a thermostat wired?
Thermostat Wiring Tips
- The W wire is connected to your heating system.
- The Y wire is yellow and connects to your air conditioning compressor.
- The G wire is green and connects to the fan.
- Rc and Rh: The red wire(s) are the power source for your thermostat.
