What’s the Difference Between Smart and Programmable Thermostats? 

If you are looking for ways to stay comfortable in your Columbus home while saving money, you might want to consider upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have updated quite a bit from setting the temperature and walking away and Stevenson Service Experts has a number of choices to fit your individual needs. 

The most popular kinds of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a number of options and features from Stevenson Service Experts. 

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 around, or at night when everyone is asleep. There’s no need to expend energy and money to keep the house cool or warm when no one is there, so a programmable thermostat helps you save money by making an adjustment to the temperature automatically. You can head out with one less thing to be concerned with. 
  • Smart thermostats take it to the next step and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature alterations that you make and learn from your behavior which permits it to begin adjusting on its own. A lot of the newer and more advanced thermostats use your home’s Wi-Fi network, meaning you can control your home’s temperature throughout your home using an app through your phone or computer. These thermostats can often be arranged to pull your energy usage numbers on a website. 

Whether you pick a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will depend on your own needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a tad more because of the additional features, both programmable and smart thermostats are decent ways to save on your energy bills while ensuring you are comfortable in your Columbus home.
