Your thermostat is a huge factor in how much you’re paying on your utility bills. Merely programming your thermostat for periods when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a large impact without negatively affecting your comfort levels. Depending on the type of programmable thermostat you purchase, you can do a whole lot more to make an even bigger impact.
At Cooler Tymes LLC, we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most basic models to the newest learning thermostats. How will you know what will work best for you? First, learn the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Each of these options can help you save energy and money, but you’ll need to decide which features are most important to your home.
The majority of programmable thermostats will let you schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re typically there and gone. Depending on the model you select, you might be able to input one schedule, which you may end up overriding on the days you are home. Some models will allow you to program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on another. You’ll also want to review the number of periods you can set up during the day. For instance, will you want the temperature setting different when you sleep, when you wake up, when you’re at work and when you are home in the evening? Be sure the thermostat you select can adapt to your needs.
For some individuals, being able to set a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is plenty. But if you want additional flexibility, it’s probably time to look into a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat will let you completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for every weekday.
Smart thermostats don’t just add more flexibility, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can regulate your home’s temperature no matter where you are. Some models 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 adapt your heating and cooling schedules based on your household’s activity throughout the day. Some models don’t even need to be programmed—you just turn them on and they will figure everything out on their own over the span of a few days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling desires are, Cooler Tymes LLC will help you find the best thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll get to enjoy ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Contact us at 623-208-6444 to find out more, or book an appointment with us online.
