The Smart Choice In Programmable Thermostats

You leave your house on a bitter-cold winter Massachusetts morning, confident that your furnace won't run while you're not there but will make your home toasty-warm by the time you get back. Who can blame you for feeling good about having a "smart" thermostat?

But when the weather changes radically during the day and you can set the air conditioning via your smartphone or computer, it's you who really deserves the credit for being smart. With the new generation of programmable thermostats, you can do a lot more to regulate your heating and cooling from a distance.

The older models lived up to their reputation as energy savers because they allowed homeowners to set the temperature in their home around the comings and goings of family members and mostly when their home wasn’t occupied.

The U.S. Department of Energy lobbied hard for programmable thermostats, especially for families who can set a temperature, and leave it there, for at least eight hours at a time. Why? The department estimates that homeowners can reduce their heating and cooling bills by as much as 10 percent a year by adjusting their thermostat by 10 to 15 percent for eight hours at a time.

Comparatively, the latest generation of smart programmable thermostats are upstarts. They allow homeowners to:

  • Connect to their HVAC system via their smartphone or Internet
  • Adjust the home thermostat from afar, a great feature on days when the weather has deviated from the forecast. Some include provisions for changes in airflow and humidity.
  • Restore settings that may have been temporarily erased because of a power or battery outage
  • Adjust settings for Daylight Savings Time
  • Gather on-screen maintenance reports, especially with regard to filter changes
  • Check the latest gas and electricity prices with your power company and adjust your home's temperature settings accordingly

The thermostats also feature:

  • Daily override and vacation mode options
  • The ability to read temperatures for weekdays and weekends
  • Touchscreen and back-lit displays

Contact us at Rodenhiser Plumbing,Heating & Air Conditioning and we'll happily introduce you to these smart programmable thermostats. Serving the Route 495/128 area, we're always happy to help.
