Your thermostat is key to how much you are spending on energy costs. Just programming your thermostat for times when you’re sleeping or not at home can make a large impact without harming your comfort levels. Depending on the model of your thermostat, you can do a whole lot more to make an even bigger impact.
At Woody's Sudden Service Inc, we’ve got a selection of programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most simple models to the state-of-the-art learning thermostats. How will you know what will work best for you? First, research the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Either of these can help you save energy and money, but you’ll need to decide which features are most important to you.
All programmable thermostats will give you the chance to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re routinely there and away. Depending on the model you choose, you may be able to input one schedule, which you may end up overriding on days you are actually home. Some models will allow you to program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on a different one. You’ll also want to check the number of periods during each day you can set up. For instance, will you want the temperature in your house different when you sleep, when you wake up, when you’re at work and when you are home in the evening? Confirm that the thermostat you select can accommodate your needs.
For some people, being able to establish a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is enough. But if you want added flexibility, it’s probably time to buy a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat lets you completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for every day of the week.
Flexibility isn’t the only benefit that smart thermostats provide, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can manage your home’s temperature regardless of where you are. Some types of smart thermostats take innovation even further—these are called “learning thermostats.” Learning thermostats do everything a regular smart thermostat can do, but they can also learn from your behaviors and adjust your heating and cooling schedules based on the actual activity in your home. Some models don’t even need to be programmed—you just turn them on and they will figure everything out on their own after a short amount of time.
So, no matter what your heating and cooling desires are, Woody's Sudden Service Inc will help you find the best thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll experience ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Give us a call at 703-278-2036 to find out more, or book an appointment with us online.
