Comparing today’s thermostats to those of the not-so-distant past is a lot like comparing today’s phones to the original cell phones. Times may have been simpler then, but they’re arguably more fun now. So if you’re not making the most of your programmable thermostat, you’re missing out on some fantastic time- and energy-saving features.
You already know that programmable thermostats allow you to ensure that your home is always comfortable when it’s occupied and alter the temperature and save money on your energy bills when it’s not. Most models allow you to program your thermostat for seven days at a time, for the five weekdays and then the weekend, or for the five weekdays and Saturday and Sunday separately.
If you remember the days when phones were still tethered to a wall by a long, gangly cord, then you’ll be especially delighted with the other bells and whistles found on many programmable thermostats.
Here are some programmable thermostat options:
Don’t forget a fundamental advantage of programmable thermostats: They can save you up to 15 percent a year on your utility bills.
