If you are on the lookout for ways to stay comfortable in your Tempe home while saving on your expenses, you might want to ponder upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have come a long way from setting the temperature and walking away and Orangutan Home Services has a number of options to fit your specific needs.
The most widespread styles of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a variety of options and features from Orangutan Home Services. What is the difference between programmable and smart thermostats?
- Programmable thermostats permit you to pre-set temperatures for a variety of times of the day and week. You can program the thermostat so that it provides different temperatures during the day when no one is in your house, or at night when everyone is sleeping. There’s no need to spend energy and money to keep the house cool or warm when no one’s around, so a programmable thermostat helps you save money by making an adjustment to the temperature automatically. You can walk out the door with one less thing to worry about.
- Smart thermostats take it a step further and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature adjustments that you make and learn from your behavior which allows it to begin making changes on its own. Many of the newer and more advanced thermostats tap in to your home’s Wi-Fi network, permitting you to control your home’s temperature from all over using an app through your phone or computer. These thermostats can often be arranged to gather your energy usage figures on a website.
Whether you choose 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 great ways to save on your energy expenses while making sure you are cozy in your Tempe home.
