a: Thermostat ~
b: driver

What: "The entire system is comparable to a car in that there are many components driving one result. The thermostat is like the driver, the compressor is the engine with the cooling power, and the furnace is the transmission making everything go everyday. This is why maintaining your entire heating and cooling system is vital to the life and efficiency of the HVAC components. If you don't change the oil in your car then your car is going to struggle to work right and there is a good chance you can have a break down."

a: Thermostat ~
b: chirping of a cricket


If you didn't know, a crickets rate of chirping is proportional to the temperature. The higher the temperature the faster the chirping. So a thermostat is an instrument that is sensitive to it's environment, somewhat like a cricket. Or maybe is like a chameleon, like the linked product shows.
