With Programmable Thermostats, It’s a Breeze to Schedule Comfort Right Along With Savings

Why pay to run your HVAC system when nobody’s home? Let the set-it-and-forget-it technology of programmable thermostats do the work for you. Thermostats can store multiple daily settings, adjusting temperatures in your home while you are away or asleep, and saving you quite a bit annually on heating and cooling costs.


Types of Programmable Thermostats:

Determining the thermostat model that best fits your lifestyle and schedule is the key to savings, as thermostats must be properly used for maximum savings. Consider which of the following models is the most convenient for you and your home:

  • 7 day: The best model for households whose schedules vary from day to day. This type of programmable thermostat gives you the most flexibility, allowing you to set different programs for different days.
  • 5+2 day: A good fit for those with the typical schedule of a five day work week and a two day weekend.
  • 5-1-1: This model also uses the same schedule for five days, but offers separate programming for each day of the weekend.
  • “Smart” thermostat: This model is Wi-Fi-enabled and can be programmed remotely from a computer or smartphone. These are a good fit for families with irregular schedules and those who forget to pre-set their thermostats before they leave.
  • “Learning” smart thermostat: These programmable thermostats are also Wi-Fi-enabled, however they learn your daily habits and schedule temperatures based on this gathered information. If you know you’ll never sit down and figure out how to operate your programmable thermostat, often forget to adjust settings and have a somewhat regular schedule, this is the thermostat for you.
