Your thermostat is a huge factor in how much you’re paying on your utility bills. Just programming your thermostat for periods when you’re sleeping or gone can make a great 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 A2Z Air Inc, we’ve got an array of programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most simple models to the state-of-the-art learning thermostats. How can you know what you need in your home? First, take the time to understand 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 decide which features are most important to your home comfort.
Most programmable thermostats will allow you to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re usually there and gone. Depending on the model you pick, you might be able to enter 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 look at the number of periods you can set up during the day. For instance, will you want the temperature in your house 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 people, 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 look into a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat allows you to completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for every weekday.
Flexibility isn’t the only benefit that smart thermostats provide, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can manage your home’s temperature no matter where you are. Some models 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 the actual activity in your home. 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 wants are, A2Z Air 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. Call us at 561-270-6228 to find out more, or arrange an appointment with us online.
