      Programmable vs. Smart Thermostats: What’s the Difference?

      One of the most important energy devices in your home is your thermostat. Without it, you’d very well end up wasting money on unnecessarily high electric bills because of your inability to properly regulate the heating and cooling of your space.

      Programmable vs. Smart Thermostats: What’s the Difference?

      There are three types of thermostats: manual, programmable and smart. Air conditioning installation pro Superior Air breaks down the differences between a programmable and a smart thermostat below:

      Programmable Thermostats

      With programmable thermostats, homeowners are able to customize the temperature of their house according to their preferences. This customization enables the thermostat to independently fulfill the desired temperature settings for each day of the week, so you don’t have to worry about manually changing the temperature setting as the day goes by. Furthermore, these thermostats help you save energy by automatically increasing or decreasing the temperature while you sleep or when you’re away from home.

      The only downside to this is that programmable thermostats are not always universal, which means you’ll need to check with your trusted air conditioning maintenance company to be sure that the thermostat you plan on getting will suit your household.

      Smart Thermostats

      If you’re not satisfied with a programmable thermostat, take it up a notch and invest in a smart thermostat. Like the above device, you can use it to schedule and program your desired heating and cooling strategy. The main difference is that smart thermostats run on Wi-Fi, enabling you to control them using your smartphone.

      With this kind of technology, energy reports, running time and air filter replacement notifications are just a click away. Controlling your home’s comfort level has never been this easy and convenient. A smart thermostat will surely be a perfect fit for your high-tech lifestyle.
