Your thermostat is a huge factor in how much your energy bills are every month. Merely programming your thermostat for times when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a big impact without having a negative affect on your comfort levels. Depending on the model of your thermostat, you may be able to do even more.
At Solar Air Inc. , we’ve got a selection of programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most basic models to the most modern learning thermostats. How will you know what is best for your space? First, learn the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Both can help you save energy and money, but you’ll want to determine which features are most important to your home comfort.
Most programmable thermostats will give you the chance to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re routinely there and away. Depending on the model you choose, you may be able to record one schedule, which you may end up overriding on days you are actually home. Some models will let you program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on a separate schedule. You’ll also want to review the number of periods you can set up during the day. For instance, will you want the temps different when you sleep, when you wake up, when you’re at work and when you are home in the evening? Confirm that the thermostat you select can adapt to your needs.
For some individuals, being able to establish a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is enough. But if you want additional flexibility, it’s probably time to look into a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat allows you to completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for each individual day of the week.
Not only are smart thermostats more flexible, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can regulate your home’s temperature from anywhere. Some types of smart thermostats take innovation even further—these are called “learning thermostats.” Learning thermostats do everything a regular smart thermostat can do, but they can also learn from your behaviors and monitor your heating and cooling schedules based on the actual activity in your home. Some models don’t even need to be programmed—you just turn them on and they will figure everything out on their own within several days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling needs are, Solar Air Inc. will help you find the perfect thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll get to enjoy ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 954-320-7398 to hear more, or arrange an appointment with us online.
