When used correctly, programmable thermostats can save both energy and money. These devices can be programmed to reflect your lifestyle. During the winter, set the thermostat back when you go to bed or when you leave the house for an extended period of time. During the summer, set the device to cycle on less frequently when you are away. It can be programmed to begin cooling before you return so that your indoor environment is comfortable when you arrive.

Smart Thermostats Save Money and Energy

Programmable thermostats perform a number of functions. They can control up to eight zones within a building. Wi-Fi units can be controlled from wherever you are—from a smartphone or the internet. If your plans change, you can make sure that you continue to save money by managing energy consumption from a remote location. Some can be programmed with different settings for each day to reflect your heating and cooling needs. Others offer a five-day setting for the workweek and alternate settings for the weekend.

Newer models include digital technology, touchscreen controls, and voice control. Manufacturers also make models that are compatible with electric resistance systems, radiant floor heating, and steam heating systems. Some track the unit’s performance to determine when the system should be turned on for the most comfortable temperature.
