Choosing a Programmable Thermostat

Perhaps one of the most useful recent interventions in the heating and cooling industry is the programmable thermostat. This little device provides several benefits, including:

Greater Control Over the Temperature of Your Home: Unlike your traditional thermostat that maintains a constant temperature 24 hours a day, a programmable thermostat allows you to adjust temperatures during specific times. This will lead to…

Increased Comfort: You can program your thermostat to turn off your HVAC system when you leave for and have it turn back on an hour before you arrive home, meaning you will still come home to a comfortable house.

Save You Money on Your Heating and Cooling Bill: We will talk about this more in next week’s blog, so be sure check back!

But how does one go about choosing the right programmable thermostat for his/her home? Well, it all depends on you and your schedule and how often you are away from home for long periods of time – work, school, and other activities. So look at your schedule and then take a look at how each type of programmable thermostat fits your lifestyle.

7-day models: These provide the most flexibility and are ideal if your daily schedule tends to change a lot. 7-day models allow you to set different programs (with four possible temperature periods per day) for each day of the week.

5+2-day models: If you use the same schedule every weekday and another on the weekends, then this programmable thermostat is best suited for your needs.

5-1-1 models: This model of programmable thermostat allows you to set one program for Monday-Friday, another on Saturday and another on Sunday.
