The key to keeping your home both comfortable and efficient is to select the right thermostat. There are a variety of options when it comes to thermostats. Here is a brief guide to these different options to help you know which one is the best fit for you and your home:
- Programmable thermostats allow you to set the temperature based on the time of day, season, whether you’re home or absent, etc. Since the thermostat is controlling your home’s environment automatically, it allows for high efficiency so that energy is not being wasted when you’re sleeping or not at home.
- Digital thermostats can be either wired or wireless and display the temperature of your home with a precise number instead of using a scale or dial system. This can also help you improve efficiency in your home, so you’re not using more energy than you really need.
- WiFi-enabled thermostats allow you to control your thermostat from your computer, smartphone, or tablet, no matter where you are in the world. These state-of-the-art devices give you the ultimate control and energy savings.
- Smart thermostats can “learn” your daily habits and make adjustments on their own, such as when you usually leave and return to your home. Smart thermostats cost more than traditional models, but the payoff can be worth the investment.
