Your thermostat is key to how much your energy bills are every month. Simply programming your thermostat for times when you’re sleeping or gone can make a big impact without having a negative affect on your comfort levels. Depending on which thermostat you select, you might benefit from a lot of additional features.
At CNR Air Conditioning Inc, we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most basic models to the most modern learning thermostats. How will you know what is best for your space? First, learn 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 your home comfort.
All programmable thermostats will give you the chance to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re typically there and gone. Depending on the model you pick, you might be able to input one schedule, which you may end up overriding on the days you are home. Some models will let you program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on a different one. 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? Confirm that the thermostat you select can accommodate your needs.
For some people, being able to arrange a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is enough. But if you want additional flexibility, it’s probably time to consider a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat will let you completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for every day of the week.
Not only are smart thermostats more flexible, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can manage your home’s temperature regardless of 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 actual daily activity. Some models don’t even need to be programmed—you just turn them on and let them figure everything out on their own over the span of a few days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling desires are, CNR Air Conditioning Inc will help you find the most appropriate thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll end up with ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Give us a call at 239-241-5318 to hear more, or book an appointment with us online.
