Your thermostat is key to how much you’re paying on your utility bills. Simply programming your thermostat for periods when you’re sleeping or away can make a large impact without harming your comfort levels. Depending on the type of programmable thermostat you purchase, you may be able to do even more.
At All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most uncomplicated models to the state-of-the-art learning thermostats. How can 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 need to decide which features are most important to your home.
All programmable thermostats will let you schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re usually there and away. Depending on the model you select, you may 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 a separate schedule. You’ll also want to check 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? Confirm that the thermostat you choose can accommodate your needs.
For some homeowners, being able to establish a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is plenty. But if you want additional flexibility, it’s probably time to consider a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat will let you completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for every day of the week.
Flexibility isn’t the only benefit that smart thermostats provide, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can manage 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 adapt 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 wants are, All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc will help you find the perfect thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll end up with ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 256-801-4701 to hear more, or arrange an appointment with us online.
