What’s the Difference Between Smart and Programmable Thermostats? 

If you are on the lookout for ways to stay cozy in your Columbus home while saving money, you might want to consider upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have been upgraded quite a bit from setting the temperature and walking away and Stevenson Service Experts has a number of choices to meet your specific needs. 

The most popular kinds of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a host 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 various times of the day and week. You can setup the thermostat so that it has different temperatures during the day when no one is in your house, or at night when everyone is snoozing. 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 setting 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 adjustments on its own. Many of the newer and more advanced thermostats tap in to your home’s Wi-Fi network, meaning you can control your home’s temperature from anywhere 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 go with a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will be dependent on your individual needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a little more because of the additional features, both programmable and smart thermostats are decent ways to save on your energy costs while making sure you are comfortable in your Columbus home.
