What’s the Difference Between Smart and Programmable Thermostats? 

If you are on the lookout for ways to stay cozy in your the U.S. home while saving on your expenses, you might want to ponder upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have been upgraded quite a bit from setting the temperature and walking away and Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing has a number of thermostats to meet your unique needs. 

The most common kinds of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a variety of options and features from Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing. 

What is the difference between programmable and smart thermostats? 

  • Programmable thermostats permit you to pre-set temperatures for various times of the day and week. You can setup the thermostat so that it has different temperatures during the day when no one is in your house, or at night when everyone is sleeping. There’s no need to expend energy and money to keep the house cool or warm when it’s empty, so a programmable thermostat helps you save money by adjusting the temperature automatically. You can head out with one less thing to think about. 
  • Smart thermostats take it to the next step and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature alterations that you make and learn from your behavior which allows it to begin adjusting on its own. Quite a few of the newer and more advanced thermostats tap in to your home’s Wi-Fi network, meaning you can control your home’s temperature from all over using an app through your phone or computer. These thermostats can often be configured to compile your energy usage numbers on a website. 

Whether you pick a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will depend on your own needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a tad more because of the extra features, both programmable and smart thermostats are decent ways to save on your energy bills while ensuring you are comfortable in your the U.S. home.
