If you are on the lookout for ways to stay comfy in your Memphis home while saving on your bills, you might want to ponder upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have come a long way from setting the temperature and walking away and Service Experts has a variety of options to meet your specific needs.
The most common kinds of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a number of options and features from Service Experts. What is the difference between programmable and smart thermostats?
- Programmable thermostats allow you to pre-set temperatures for a number of times of the day and week. You can set the thermostat so that it gives you different temperatures during the day when no one is around, or at night when everyone is snoozing. There’s no need to spend energy and money to keep the house cool or warm when no one’s around, so a programmable thermostat helps you save money by adjusting the temperature automatically. You can walk out the door with one less thing to be concerned with.
- Smart thermostats take it a step further and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature changes that you make and learn from your behavior which allows it to begin making changes on its own. Many of the newer and more advanced thermostats tap in to 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 unique needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a bit more because of the added features, both programmable and smart thermostats are decent ways to save on your energy bills while ensuring you are comfortable in your Memphis home.
