Your thermostat is key to how much your energy bills are every month. Just programming your thermostat for times when you’re sleeping or away can make a great impact without harming your comfort levels. Depending on which thermostat you select, you might benefit from a lot of additional features.
At Cool Air Solutions, we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most basic models to the most modern learning thermostats. How can you know what is best for your space? First, research the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Either of these can help you save energy and money, but you’ll need to select which features are most important to your home.
The majority of programmable thermostats will allow you to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re typically there and away. Depending on the model you choose, you may be able to enter one schedule, which you may end up overriding on the days you are home. Some models will let you program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on another. You’ll also want to look at the number of periods you can select each day. For instance, will you want the temperature in your house different when you sleep, when you wake up, when you’re at work and when you are home in the evening? Check that the thermostat you pick can meet your needs.
For some people, being able to set a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is enough. But if you want additional flexibility, it’s probably time to consider a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat lets you 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 manage your home’s temperature from anywhere. 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 adjust your heating and cooling schedules based on your actual daily activity. 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 needs are, Cool Air Solutions will help you find the best thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll end up with ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 951-299-9853 to learn more, or schedule an appointment with us online.
