What’s the Difference Between Smart and Programmable Thermostats? 

If you are searching for ways to stay cozy in your Columbus home while saving on your expenses, you might want to think about upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have come a long way from setting the temperature and walking away and Stevenson Service Experts has a variety of choices to handle your unique needs. 

The most common kinds of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a variety 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 gives you different temperatures during the day when no one is home, or at night when everyone is asleep. There’s no need to spend energy and money to keep the house cool or warm when no one is there, so a programmable thermostat helps you save money by making an adjustment to the temperature automatically. You can leave with one less thing to think about. 
  • Smart thermostats take it another step 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. Quite a few of the newer and more advanced thermostats use your home’s Wi-Fi network, allowing you to control your home’s temperature throughout your home using an app through your phone or computer. These thermostats can often be configured to gather your energy usage statistics on a website. 

Whether you go with a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will be contingent on your unique needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a little more because of the extra features, both programmable and smart thermostats are decent ways to save on your energy costs while making sure you are comfy in your Columbus home. 

If you have any questions about upgrading your thermostat or any more ways to gain efficiencies in your home, give Stevenson Service Experts a call at 614-334-3192 or request an appointment online and our experts will be happy to help you.
