Your thermostat is a big part of how much you are spending on energy costs. Merely programming your thermostat for periods when you’re sleeping or gone can make a big impact without having a negative affect on your comfort levels. Depending on the type of programmable thermostat you purchase, you may be able to do even more.
At Pepper AC & Htg 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 do you know what is best for your space? First, take the time to understand the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Both can help you save energy and money, but you’ll need to select which features are most important to you.
The majority of programmable thermostats will let you schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re typically there and not at home. Depending on the model you select, you could 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 different one. You’ll also want to look at the number of periods during each day you can set up. 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? Check that the thermostat you pick can meet your needs.
For some individuals, being able to establish a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is all they need. 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 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 regardless of where you are. 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 the actual activity in your home. Some models don’t even need to be programmed—you just turn them on and let them figure everything out on their own over the span of a few days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling wants are, Pepper AC & Htg Inc will help you find the most appropriate thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll get to enjoy ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Give us a call at 940-202-1184 to find out more, or book an appointment with us online.
