The one component of your HVAC system you may be most familiar with is your thermostat. A thermostat controls the temperature of your rooms by cycling your system on and off as the temperature rises and falls. While most homes have manual thermostats, today’s programmable and smart thermostats can keep you more comfortable and save you money.
Programmable and Smart Thermostats
Unlike a traditional manual thermostat, a programmable thermostat can control several areas of your house at once. For example, if you have a room which is not used very often there is no reason to have it as cool as rooms you use a lot. You can program the thermostat to create zones in your home which can be cooled and heated as needed.
A programmable thermostat can also adjust the temperature while you are away. If you work all day and no one is home, a programmable thermostat will help save you money by adjusting the temperature when the house is empty. The air conditioning or heater will kick on at a specified time and your home will be comfortable when you walk in the door.
Smart thermostats can be controlled over the internet through a computer, tablet, or phone. They also offer the convenience of heating and cooling zones, and programmable timers. As long as you have an internet connection you can adjust the temperature in your home from anywhere. This means you can check the temperature of your home before you arrive from work and adjust it to your comfort level.
