There is nothing wrong with a manual or basic digital thermostat. They perform their function fine. By using a programmable thermostat with a greater variety of options for use, though, you can reduce the cost of heating and cooling your home while actually enjoying greater comfort. With a programmable thermostat you have the option of creating heating and cooling programs specific to your schedule. During the day when the house is empty you can program your thermostat to maintain a more moderate temperature. It can be programmed to kick into a higher gear shortly before you get home from work or the kids are due home from school. This allows you to return home to a comfortable environment without maintaining that temperature all day.

A smart thermostat gives you even more control options. With this type of advanced thermostat you can control the temperature and energy use in your home remotely. Access your thermostat via a computer or even your smart phone to manage energy and temperatures no matter where you are. You’ll never have to worry about forgetting to set the thermostat again. There are a lot of different features and options with this type of technology, so make sure that you discuss the operation of your new thermostat with your professional heating and cooling technician.
