Your thermostat is a huge factor in how much you are spending on energy costs. Simply programming your thermostat for periods when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a great 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 Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most basic 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 need to select which features are most important to your home comfort.
The majority of programmable thermostats will let you schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re routinely there and away. Depending on the model you choose, you may 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 check the number of periods you can set up during the 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? Be sure the thermostat you choose can accommodate your needs.
For some individuals, being able to arrange a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is plenty. But if you want added 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 from anywhere. 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 adjust 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 they will figure everything out on their own within several days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling desires are, Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc will help you find the best thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll end up with ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Give us a call at 877-389-2465 to find out more, or arrange an appointment with us online.
