Are you in the market for a new thermostat? Consider getting a programmable thermostat. Deciding to go that route is the easy part. There are a lot of different options available to you when shopping for a programmable thermostat.
Here are some things you can expect to find:
-Heat only or cool only settings. (only the a/c or heater will be working at a time)
-Single-stage heating and cooling. This feature allows the thermostat to control both the air conditioning and the heating at the same time. You set the desired temperature, and the thermostat will use whichever device is needed to achieve the desired result.
–WiFi connectivity. This allows you to connect to your thermostat from any remote location with an internet connection. This is especially convenient if you are busy and forgetful. You likely have different temperature settings that you use when you are going out of town, and what could be better than being able to program that change from the airport?
-Manual override. This allows you to break from the programmed schedule, if needed.
There are also a few models with different scheduling options:
-7 day model: allows a separate program for each day of the week
-5-2 model: allows one program for Monday thru Friday and another program for Saturday and Sunday
-5-1-1 model: allows one program for Monday thru Friday, one program for Saturday and one program for Sunday.
