Your thermostat is a big part of how much you’re paying on your utility bills. Just programming your thermostat for stretches when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a great impact without negatively affecting your comfort levels. Depending on the type of programmable thermostat you purchase, you might benefit from a lot of additional features.
At Scott Temperature, we’ve got a selection of programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most uncomplicated models to the state-of-the-art learning thermostats. How will you know what will work best for you? First, learn 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.
Most programmable thermostats will let you schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re usually there and gone. Depending on the model you choose, you could be able to record one schedule, which you may end up overriding on weekends or other days you’re home. Some models will allow you to program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on a different one. You’ll also want to review the number of periods you can select each 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 accommodate 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 more flexibility, it’s probably time to consider a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat will let 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 control your home’s temperature regardless of where you are. Some selections 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 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 within several days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling desires are, Scott Temperature will help you find the perfect thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll experience ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Contact us at 785-269-0465 to learn more, or schedule an appointment with us online.
