What Are Programmable Thermostats?
Do you want the convenience of being able to have the temperature in your house change throughout the day based on when you’re home and when you’re away? You can achieve this when you install a programmable thermostat. This lets you schedule the thermostat to increase or decrease when you’re not home and have it return to the desired temperature when you return. Some versions will even let you alter the temperature from the convenience of your phone.
Benefits of Installing Programmable Thermostats
Installing a programmable thermostat can help improve the indoor climate control in your home, as well as provide you with more convenient ways to change the temperature. Some of the advantages can include:
- Add password protection to the unit.
- Program it to different temperatures based on different times of the day.
- Connect your home thermostat to your smartphone, allowing you to control the temperature remotely from your device.
- Decrease your monthly utility bills by better controlling the temperature in your home.
