Your thermostat is key to how much you are spending on energy costs. Just programming your thermostat for stretches when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a large impact without harming your comfort levels. Depending on the model of your thermostat, you may be able to do even more.
At Premium Air Services LLC, we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most basic models to the state-of-the-art learning thermostats. How do you know what is best for your space? First, research the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Both can help you save energy and money, but you’ll need to select which features are most important to your home.
The majority of programmable thermostats will let you schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re usually there and away. Depending on the model you select, you might be able to record one schedule, which you may end up overriding on weekends or other days you’re 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 set up during the 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? Confirm that the thermostat you pick can accommodate your needs.
For some individuals, being able to arrange a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is plenty. But if you want added 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 each individual day of the week.
Smart thermostats don’t just add more flexibility, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can control your home’s temperature regardless of where you are. Some types 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, Premium Air Services LLC will help you find the perfect thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll experience ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 713-364-9957 to hear more, or book an appointment with us online.
