Your thermostat is key to how much you are spending on energy costs. Just programming your thermostat for periods when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a large impact without negatively affecting your comfort levels. Depending on which thermostat you select, you might benefit from a lot of additional features.
At E.B. Air, LLC, we’ve got an array of programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most uncomplicated models to the newest learning thermostats. How will you know what will work best for you? First, learn the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Either of these can help you save energy and money, but you’ll need to decide which features are most important to your home comfort.
Most 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 days you are actually home. Some models will permit you to program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on a separate schedule. You’ll also want to review the number of periods you can select each day. For instance, will you want the temps 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 choose can adapt to your needs.
For some homeowners, being able to set a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is all they need. But if you want additional flexibility, it’s probably time to consider a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat lets you completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for every day of the week.
Smart thermostats don’t just add more flexibility, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can regulate 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 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 give them time to figure everything out on their own within several days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling wants are, E.B. Air, LLC will help you find the best thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll get to enjoy ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 979-335-4262 to find out more, or book an appointment with us online.
