Your thermostat is a huge factor in how much your energy bills are every month. Simply programming your thermostat for stretches when you’re sleeping or away can make a great impact without having a negative affect on your comfort levels. Depending on the type of programmable thermostat you purchase, you can do a whole lot more to make an even bigger impact.
At Moyer Total Indoor Comfort, we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most simple models to the state-of-the-art learning thermostats. How can you know what is best for your space? First, research 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 you.
All programmable thermostats will allow you to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re typically there and not at home. Depending on the model you select, you might be able to enter 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 look at the number of periods you can select each day. For instance, will you want the temperature setting 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 adapt to 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 buy a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat will let you completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for every weekday.
Not only are smart thermostats more flexible, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can control your home’s temperature no matter where you are. Some selections 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 after a short amount of time.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling needs are, Moyer Total Indoor Comfort will help you find the perfect thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll end up with ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 484-646-3363 to learn more, or schedule an appointment with us online.
