How Learning Thermostats are Different from Programmable Thermostats

Technology

Your thermostat is a huge factor in how much your energy bills are every month. Just programming your thermostat for times when you’re sleeping or away can make a large impact without harming your comfort levels. Depending on the type of programmable thermostat you purchase, you might benefit from a lot of additional features.

At Breathe Healthier Air Inc, we’ve got several programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most basic models to the most modern learning thermostats. How will you know what is best for your space? First, learn the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Both can help you save energy and money, but you’ll need to decide which features are most important to your home comfort.

All programmable thermostats will give you the chance to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re typically there and gone. Depending on the model you choose, you could be able to enter one schedule, which you may end up overriding on weekends or other days you’re home. Some models will permit you to program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on another. You’ll also want to check the number of periods you can set up during the day. For instance, will you want the temperature setting 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 choose can meet your needs.

For some individuals, being able to set a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is enough. But if you want added flexibility, it’s probably time to consider a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat lets you completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for each individual day of the week.

Flexibility isn’t the only benefit that smart thermostats provide, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can regulate your home’s temperature no matter where you are. Some models 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 within several days.

So, no matter what your heating and cooling desires are, Breathe Healthier Air Inc will help you find the best thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll get to enjoy ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 772-200-3617 to find out more, or book an appointment with us online.
