What’s the Difference Between Smart and Programmable Thermostats? 

If you are on the lookout for ways to stay comfy in your Columbus home while saving on your expenses, you might want to think about upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have come a long way from setting the temperature and walking away and Stevenson Service Experts has a variety of options to meet your specific needs. 

The most common styles of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a variety of options and features from Stevenson Service Experts. 

What is the difference between programmable and smart thermostats? 

  • Programmable thermostats permit you to pre-set temperatures for a variety of times of the day and week. You can program the thermostat so that it gives you different temperatures during the day when no one is around, or at night when everyone is sleeping. There’s no need to devote energy and money to keep the house cool or warm when it’s empty, so a programmable thermostat helps you save money by making an adjustment to the temperature automatically. You can leave with one less thing to think about. 
  • Smart thermostats take it a step further and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature adjustments that you make and learn from your behavior which permits it to begin making changes on its own. A lot of the newer and more advanced thermostats use 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 configured to pull your energy usage numbers on a website. 

Whether you choose a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will be dependent on your individual needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a tad more because of the added features, both programmable and smart thermostats are decent ways to save on your energy expenses while ensuring you are cozy in your Columbus home.
