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 not at home can make a big 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 Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, we’ve got an array of programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most simple models to the most modern learning thermostats. How can you know what you need in your home? First, learn the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Each of these options can help you save energy and money, but you’ll want to determine which features are most important to your home.
Most programmable thermostats will let you schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re routinely 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 another. You’ll also want to review 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? Check that the thermostat you select can accommodate your needs.
For some individuals, being able to set a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is enough. 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 each individual day of the week.
Not only are smart thermostats more flexible, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can regulate 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 actual daily activity. Some models don’t even need to be programmed—you just turn them on and let them figure everything out on their own within several days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling needs are, Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc will help you find the best thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll experience ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Contact us at 251-471-2674 to hear more, or arrange an appointment with us online.
