- * hold multiple goals or temperature settings for specific times of day
* continuosly monitors current state or temperature and compares it to the goal temperature
* when their is a discrepancy between the state (current temperature) and the goal (desired
temp), it signals the heatpump to come on thereby regulating the temperature.
* has multiple goals/standards, continuous monitoring, control-regulation
