Your thermostat is a big part of how much you are spending on energy costs. Just programming your thermostat for times when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a big impact without having a negative affect on your comfort levels. Depending on which thermostat you select, you may be able to do even more.
At Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most simple models to the state-of-the-art learning thermostats. How can you know what will work best for you? First, research 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 select which features are most important to you.
The majority of programmable thermostats will allow you to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re routinely there and away. Depending on the model you choose, you may be able to input one schedule, which you may end up overriding on weekends or other days you’re home. Some models will allow you to program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on a different one. You’ll also want to review the number of periods during each day you can set up. 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? Confirm that the thermostat you select can accommodate your needs.
For some homeowners, being able to set a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is all they need. 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 each individual 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 from anywhere. 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 adapt 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 they will figure everything out on their own after a short amount of time.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling needs are, Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. will help you find the perfect thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll get to enjoy ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 303-452-4146 to hear more, or book an appointment with us online.
