What is the difference between programmable and smart thermostats?
  • Programmable thermostats allow you to pre-set temperatures for a variety of times of the day and week. You can set the thermostat so that it has different temperatures during the day when no one is in your house, or at night when everyone is sleeping. There’s no need to devote energy and money to keep the house cool or warm when no one is there, so a programmable thermostat helps you save money by setting the temperature automatically. You can walk out the door with one less thing to think about.
  • Smart thermostats take it another step and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature alterations that you make and learn from your behavior which permits it to begin making adjustments on its own. Quite a few of the newer and more advanced thermostats utilize your home’s Wi-Fi network, permitting you to control your home’s temperature from anywhere using an app through your phone or computer. These thermostats can often be set up to pull your energy usage figures on a website.

Whether you pick a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will be contingent on your individual needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a tad more because of the additional features, both programmable and smart thermostats are good ways to save on your energy bills while making sure you are comfortable in your East Syracuse home.
