Now that spring has arrived, isn’t it about time you took control of your home’s comfort level? Installing a smart programmable thermostat is your first step toward independence from the restrictions imposed by less advanced thermostats. Let’s discuss what makes these “smart” devices so wonderful.
It’s about the control
Programmable thermostats enable you to program temperatures in advance according to your daily and weekly schedules. Featuring easy-to-read displays, vacation holds and override options, these devices save energy by automatically setting back the temperature when nobody’s home or you’re asleep.
It’s about the connectivity
Manufacturers are always trying to find ways to improve their products, even when those products are already advanced. In recent years, the smart programmable thermostat was created. Possessing all the traits of its predecessor, these new models also offer connectivity over the Internet and via a smartphone app. These new options allow changes to be made from virtually any location. If used wisely, this can greatly increase the control you have over your home’s energy use.
It’s about the monitoring
Being able to control and monitor your thermostat while you’re at work, at play or on the road means that you’ll save energy by cutting down on those times that your system is running unnecessarily. In addition to the connectivity that a smart programmable thermostat offers, there are two monitoring features that will help you reign in your energy usage. First, the unit may have the ability to monitor your scheduling habits and then use what it has learned to adjust its settings accordingly. The second feature is the monitoring of your home’s energy usage, viewed in an easy-to-read chart, that can help you pinpoint any problems in how you’re using energy.
