Jan 28, 2022

As we know it, prices are rising for everything, and there is nothing we can do about it. More than ever now, residents are searching for more ways to save money. If you have seen the ads about smart thermostats and WiFi thermostats, then, in that case, you are on the right track to saving energy while keeping money in your pocket. Since we realize that another gadget for your home can be expensive, we also want you to know how much it will help you in the long run. New Albany Heating & Cooling breaks down what these smart thermostats can do and their benefits.

What is the Difference Between a Programmable & Smart Thermostat?

You can think of your thermostat as the king of the house. It allows you to set the temperature to your liking. A programmable thermostat works well for homeowners who have a set schedule, as you can put it on a temperature before you get home and it is ready to go. A smart thermostat takes a thermostat to another level and gives you more control. This one is equipped with a WiFi connection for innovative learning, and you’ll be able to change anything right from your laptop or smartphone. This device will also copy your behavior, changing it automatically. So if you like high-tech gadgets, a smart thermostat is for you.

Where Should I Place My Thermostat?

You will want to place your thermostat in a central area away from doors or any place that may have a draft coming in. Where your thermostat is placed can change the temperature readings of your thermostat, which can display temperatures that aren’t accurate. Don’t worry if you are still unsure where you should put your thermostat. Our experienced technicians will be happy to help.

How Should I Set My Thermostat?

The settings on your thermostat are up to you and your family members. You will want to choose if you like it to be hot or cold at night. Research shows that most residents will turn down the heat at night, waking up to just the perfect temperature. Fortunately, for most of the features on the newer thermostats, you won’t have to touch the settings at all. It will automatically learn and set your optimal household temperature based on how you like it. 

There is always a way to save time, energy, and, most importantly, money. At New Albany Heating & Cooling, we hope you’re excited to upgrade your thermostat and see which one will fit your home the best. There is no rush to go out to buy the latest and greatest model.
