Programmable thermostats are quickly replacing older technology for a lot of good reasons. After programming the thermostat, it automatically monitors and adjusts temperature settings saving money and energy.
Automated thermostats are considered energy-efficient, smart technology. Similar to computers, these mini-brains accept information and perform climate and comfort control automatically.
Saving money is today’s primary reason why homeowners are making the change from manual to programmable thermostats. Increasing energy costs generate a huge demand for programmable thermostats. The simple theory can be thought of as ‘you wouldn’t leave your car running in the garage when you weren’t home.’ Heating and cooling the home when no one is home doesn’t make a lot of sense.
Homeowners no longer need to rely on remembering to adjust thermostats to save energy. Programmable thermostats make adjustments automatically saving fuel and electricity.
Multi-Day Program Scheduling
Multi-day and multi-period programming provides you with weekday, weekend, and up-to 6-periods within each day settings. Warming the home when you wake and return home from work and then reducing the heat-load when leaving for work or going to bed is performed automatically by programmable thermostats. One-time programming, with battery back-up to save setting in power failure circumstances, allow the homeowner to focus on other more important things instead of the home’s thermostat.
In today’s world of technology, what would a programmable thermostat be without remote programming? Remote programming is a common feature available with many models of programmable thermostats. Monitoring and adjusting the temperature within the home is easy via the Internet and iPhones.
One of our most popular thermostats even includes a remote sensor that you can carry with you. So, if you have an uncomfortable room you can use this sensor to control the temperature in whatever room you are hanging out in!
Some other great reasons for making the switch to a programmable thermostat are – filter alerts, large displays, easy installation, easy programming, compatible with most heating and air conditioning systems.
