Your thermostat is a big part of 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 harming your comfort levels. Depending on the model of your thermostat, you can do a whole lot more to make an even bigger impact.
At H & H Service Company, we’ve got a selection of programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most simple models to the most modern learning thermostats. How can 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 need to decide which features are most important to you.
All programmable thermostats will give you the chance to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re usually there and not at home. Depending on the model you select, you may 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 during each day you can set up. 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? Be sure the thermostat you select can adapt to your needs.
For some people, being able to establish 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 allows you to 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 regulate your home’s temperature no matter 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 household’s activity throughout the day. 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 after a short amount of time.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling wants are, H & H Service Company will help you find the best thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll experience ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Contact us at 717-220-4502 to learn more, or book an appointment with us online.
