Your thermostat is key to how much you are spending on energy costs. Just programming your thermostat for stretches when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a large impact without harming your comfort levels. Depending on which thermostat you select, you might benefit from a lot of additional features.
At County Line Mechanical LLC, we’ve got an array of programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most uncomplicated models to the newest learning thermostats. How can you know what will work best for you? First, research the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Each of these options can help you save energy and money, but you’ll need to decide which features are most important to you.
Most programmable thermostats will give you the chance to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re typically there and not at home. Depending on the model you pick, you could be able to input one schedule, which you may end up overriding on the days you are home. Some models will permit you to program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on another. You’ll also want to check the number of periods you can set up during the day. For instance, will you want the temps different when you sleep, when you wake up, when you’re at work and when you are home in the evening? Check that the thermostat you select can meet your needs.
For some homeowners, being able to arrange a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is plenty. But if you want more flexibility, it’s probably time to consider a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat allows you to completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for every weekday.
Flexibility isn’t the only benefit that smart thermostats provide, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can control your home’s temperature regardless of where you are. Some models of smart thermostats take innovation even further—these are called “learning thermostats.” Learning thermostats do everything a regular smart thermostat can do, but they can also learn from your behaviors and adjust your heating and cooling schedules based on the actual activity in your home. Some models don’t even need to be programmed—you just turn them on and they will figure everything out on their own within several days.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling needs are, County Line Mechanical LLC will help you find the perfect thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll get to enjoy ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Contact us at 717-216-0846 to learn more, or book an appointment with us online.
