If you are a first-time homebuyer, you are probably researching all the best gadgets your house may need. And of course, if this means you can save more money on your electric bill. However, when it comes to your thermostat, research is essential as you will find out that some products weren’t worth the money. Because we understand how customers don’t like money to be wasted, below, Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating will look at ways to save you money and give you tips on the latest technology.
Do I Need To Buy A Specific Brand?
You can easily google and look up the best brand to get; however, we believe the best thing to do when looking for a brand is to pay attention to two things. First, if you see, it says “Energy Star,” and second, if it fits all your preferences, if those two options align, we say go for it. The truth is there are too many different brands out to tell you exactly which one to get, but it’s nice to have several options.
What is a Programmable Thermostat?
A programmable thermostat is meant for you to manually change the settings. It will give you a few options on what temperatures to keep throughout the day. However, you will still have to input everything manually. This is more for someone who doesn’t trust technology much and would rather adjust their temperature themselves.
What Is A Smart Thermostat?
Everything is getting high-tech these days, and the thermostats needed to catch up, so that’s what happened. With a smart thermostat, you will have over five different features that allow you to control your thermostat from wherever you are. To name a few, you will have voice command options, automatic adjustments, and usage tracking. Usage tracking is used to follow your routines and automatically set the temperature in your home for you. So if you are someone who likes things to be done automatically for you, this will be the best option for you.
What Are The Differences Between A Programmable Thermostat and A Smart Thermostat?
You can manually get several simple settings into your programmable thermostat, but you can’t do it remotely through the Wi-Fi Internet. A smart thermostat lets you change settings to turn them on and off from a distance. At the same time, you can control smart thermostats by using your phone or computer. This is something programmable thermostats can’t offer. A thermostat with a smart system has automatic heating and cooling adjustment technology that helps homeowners save money on electric bills.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time homebuyer or a ten-year buyer; we know how important it is for you to save money. With that being said, we hope these were helpful tips to ensure you choose what will work for you, your home, and your family.
