Your thermostat is a huge factor in how much you are spending on energy costs. Simply programming your thermostat for stretches when you’re sleeping or away can make a great impact without harming your comfort levels. Depending on which thermostat you select, you might benefit from a lot of additional features.
At Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc, we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most uncomplicated models to the most modern learning thermostats. How can you know what will work best for you? First, research the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Either of these can help you save energy and money, but you’ll want to determine which features are most important to your home comfort.
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 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 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? Check that the thermostat you select can meet your needs.
For some individuals, being able to arrange a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is all they need. But if you want more flexibility, it’s probably time to buy 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 control your home’s temperature from anywhere. Some types 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 desires are, Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc will help you find the perfect thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll experience ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 662-281-1231 to hear more, or schedule an appointment with us online.
