Advantages of Programmable Thermostats
Programmable thermostats offer homeowners numerous advantages that add up every month. These advantages include energy savings that can take a big bite out of your monthly utility bills. It’s common for programmable thermostats to cut monthly utility expenses by 2-5%.
Programmable thermostats also make it easier to maintain a comfortable environment throughout the day. Preset inputs allow you to control the temperature without having to lift a finger when the weather changes. This creates a consistency that ensures your comfort whether it’s 100 degrees and sunny, or 30 degrees and snowy outside.
Installing a programmable thermostat also helps protect your HVAC system. They help reduce the workload on your furnace and air conditioner which means increased efficiency, less wear and tear, and reduced maintenance expenses as the years fly by.
Features of Programmable Thermostats
Programmable thermostats offer a wide variety of features. In general, all come with pre-installed presets that you can explore. Most feature digital, backlit displays and touchpad screens that are easy to navigate. They also feature hold/vacation settings that allow you to reduce energy consumption while you are away. Almost all new programmable thermostats offer Wi-Fi connectivity and remote access so that you can control the temperature within your home from anywhere you have an internet connection.
Programmable Thermostat Manufacturers
Over the past decade, the market for programmable thermostats has expanded rapidly. Some of the largest manufacturers are Carrier, Emerson, Honeywell, Lennox, Lux, and Nest. Indeed, there are plenty of options to choose from.
While in some cases it makes sense to purchase a programmable thermostat from the same manufacturer of your furnace or air conditioning system, this isn’t a requirement. What is more important is selecting a brand that offers the reliability and features you desire. To that end, our HVAC technicians can help you sort through your options and choose a programmable thermostat that offers the features and functionality you desire.
Programmable Thermostat Schedules
It’s crucial to select a programmable thermostat that meets your schedule. There are three basic types of thermostats and choosing the right one starts by selecting one that can be programmed to meet your needs.
7-day programmable thermostats are ideal for people whose daily schedule tends to fluctuate. These are perfect for people with families and for individuals who travel frequently.
5+2 programmable thermostats are perfect for people whose schedule during the week and over the weekend is stable. This is perfect for people who work a regular job during the week and want to kick back and relax throughout the weekend.
Finally, the 5+1+1 model is great for people who maintain one schedule during the week, another on Saturday and another on Sunday. For example, those who have a steady schedule on weekdays and have varying schedules on Saturday and Sunday, this would be a perfect option.
