Shoot. You forgot to set the thermostat before you left for work, didn’t you? On top of everything else in your morning routine, how are you supposed to remember to adjust it every day? Wouldn’t it be convenient if the thermostat could just do it on its own?
Well, it can. With a programmable thermostat, the days of forgetting to set the thermostat and wasting energy (and money!) are gone. You can come home from work to a comfortable temperature, and you can open that electric bill with ease knowing there won’t be any surprises.
Upgrading your thermostat is easy, and Coolray is here to help. Before upgrading your thermostat, knowing the varieties of different programmable thermostats will help you figure out which one will work best for you.
Why should I get a programmable thermostat?
If your electric bill is high during peak seasons, if you forget to adjust your thermostat before you leave the house, or if you’re just plain lazy, there’s a programmable thermostat out there to fit your needs.
One prominent selling point of programmable models is the amount of money and energy it can save. By programming the thermostat to fit your schedule, you can significantly reduce the amount of energy wasted in your home. It will automatically adjust the temperature while you’re at work from 9-5, and then it will make sure the house temperature is ideal for you when you get home. You save energy and money without sacrificing your comfort.
Another advantage of a programmable thermostat is that it eliminates human error. Did you forget to change the temperature before you left? No problem, it will take care of itself.
One other benefit of a programmable thermostat is the simplicity and readability that it offers. The digital screen is easy to read, so now you won’t need to get the magnifying glass to see the tick marks like you did with your old, worn-out, mechanical thermostat.
Programmable vs. Smart Thermostat
Smart thermostats are a step above the programmable models, because, well, these thermostats require minimal programming. Instead of programming your schedule, some smart thermostats can learn your schedule after just a few days.
Smart thermostats allow you to monitor and control your house from anywhere, because, yes, there’s an app for that. Check to see if the air conditioning is running during a hot day and adjust it if you want to save money, or get an alert when your system needs maintenance.
One thing’s for sure: you’ll have a hard time feeling dumb when you’ve got a smart thermostat in your home.
