Today, programmable thermostats are the savvy way for consumers to slash their energy bills. Modern thermostats increase energy efficiency and can save you about $300 to $400 a year. These modern gadgets help you control and optimize your home’s temperature with pre-programmed settings while you’re at home, away from home or sleeping. The concept behind these types of thermostats is that every household has times when you don’t need to be heating or cooling the home. For example, while you’re at work and the kids are in school, it doesn’t make economic sense to keep your home at the same temperature as when you are home. With these smart thermostats, you just set it and forget it. It does the work and thinking for you.
Remote Controlling Thermostats
With the newer WiFi-enabled thermostats, you can adjust the temperature of your home from work or while on vacation with an Internet connection. Right from your computer, tablet or smartphone, you can check your home’s temperature and make any adjustments to the settings. Many of the programmable thermostats also have desktop apps and mobile apps where you can access your thermostat and receive temperature alerts.
These nifty thermostats range in price from $40 to over $300 and include many features to choose from, such as air filter replacement alerts, voice-activated programming, touchpad programming, digital displays and more. You can also choose between seven-day, 5+2 day and 5-1-1 models. The seven day models are ideal for families that have changeable and hectic schedules. It’s very flexible, and you can set a different program for each day of the week. With the 5+2 day model, you can set a schedule for the five weekdays and a different schedule for the two weekend days. The 5-1-1 model is a bit more flexible, and you can set different schedules for Saturdays and Sundays.
