Smart thermostats are just that—smart. These devices do more than coordinate indoor temperature with a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. When used properly, smart programmable thermostats improve HVAC efficiency, save money on energy bills and keep your indoor environment comfortable.
Smart Thermostat Basics
Smart programmable thermostats offer a number of features including downloadable applications that can be used from smartphones, desktops and tablets to remotely control these devices. Some are designed to intuitively know when rooms are occupied, regulate different zones in a building and monitor outdoor temperatures and humidity. Touch screens, large displays and compatibility with other smart home devices are easy-to-use features of many models. Some are voice-controlled. Several models regulate humidity, temperature and ventilation.
Programmable Thermostats Complement a User’s Lifestyle
All models of programmable thermostats can be adjusted to reflect a user’s lifestyle. Temperatures can be set back during times when you are away and programmed to begin heating before you arrive so that your home is comfortable when you return. Nighttime setbacks help improve HVAC efficiency and reduce energy usage. Some allow different programmable options for each day of the week. Others use the same setting for weekdays and different settings for weekends. Smart devices that regulate zones allow different settings for each area or room.
