Is a programmable thermostat right for you? The best way to decide is to look at the benefits of a thermostat upgrade and determine if it fits your needs. Here are some things to consider.
Old models of manual thermostats are anything but convenient. You have to manually adjust the settings every time you want to change your home’s temperature. With a programmable version, you can set it and forget it to fit your particular temperature preferences based on when you’re home and when you’re away. You can usually change it by the day of the week and the time of day, with multiple custom settings to make your home comfortable without having to set it and reset it and set it again.
Easy to Use
Older programmable thermostats were often complicated and hard to set, with instruction manuals as confounding as the interfaces. Today’s thermostats are much more straightforward with user-friendly touch-screen technology and easy to program settings. If the thought of the technology intimidates you, you have nothing to fear from the latest models of thermostats.
Take it Up a Notch
If you want to bump up your options and your programming capabilities another notch, you could go a step further and get a smart thermostat. They offer extensive programming options, the ability to learn your preferences, and even remote operation via a WIFI connection, smart thermostats are state-of-the-art when it comes to keeping your home comfortable.
