What is a thermostat
We assume everybody knows but for the sake of clarity;
A Widely used thermostat essentially is a set of two different metal strips bolted at one end and open at the other end. Both the metals have a different coefficient of expansion when heated (One expands more than the other when heated). Usually the metal strips are sticking with each other on the open end. When the temperature rises, one of the strip expands and goes away from the loose end connection. That breaks the current flow in the circuit where the thermostat is installed. Due to circuit broken, electricity is cut off, heating stops and the room starts to cool down. As soon as the temperature fall down, the strip cools down and retouches the other strip, creating the connection back for the current to flow. The heating starts again until the strip expands again.
This cycle continues each time the set temperature is attained and dropped.
There are disc type thermostats as well but have the same function.
Now there are smart thermostats in the market as well. They use multitude of systems to control your home heating and cooling with the help of your smart gadgets such as phones, tablets etc. Smart thermostats can read your routines and can set up your house temperatures according to those routine patterns, helping you save on your energy bills and making your home energy efficient. They may have an online account available for you to control your home features from anywhere where internet is accessible.

What is a role of a thermostat
