Your thermostat is a big part of how much you’re paying on your utility bills. Just programming your thermostat for periods when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a great impact without harming your comfort levels. Depending on the type of programmable thermostat you purchase, you might benefit from a lot of additional features.
At Tri County Climate Control LLC, 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 can you know what will work best for you? First, research 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 comfort.
All programmable thermostats will give you the chance to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re usually there and gone. Depending on the model you select, you may be able to record one schedule, which you may end up overriding on days you are actually home. Some models will permit you to program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on another. You’ll also want to check 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? Be sure the thermostat you pick can accommodate your needs.
For some people, being able to set a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is all they need. But if you want added 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 weekday.
Smart thermostats don’t just add more flexibility, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can control 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 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 give them time to figure everything out on their own within several days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling wants are, Tri County Climate Control 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 541-238-2797 to hear more, or schedule an appointment with us online.
