What’s the difference between the types of thermostats?
Manual- Typically in older homes, a manual thermostat involves moving a needle-like device up or down to adjust the temperature. Because this is older technology, the energy savings isn’t tangible.
Pros: If it’s not broke, why fix it?
Cons: Manual thermostats lack energy efficiency. They can often be inaccurate when it comes to setting the temperature.
Programmable- These thermostats allow you to customize your settings for each day of the week.
Cons: Lack convenience and flexibility to automate.
Smart- These thermostats are Wi-Fi enabled so you can control the temperature in your home from your smart phone, tablet or computer with the press of a button! Smart thermostats are best option to improve energy efficiency.
Pros: Energy-efficient and convenient!
Cons: Expensive! Not compatible with some existing HVAC systems.
Want to Save Money on Your Energy Bills?
According to the Department of Energy, “You can save as much as 10% a year on heating and cooling by simply turning your thermostat back 7-10 degrees for 8 hours a day. Although thermostats can be adjusted manually, programmable thermostats will avoid any discomfort by returning temperatures to normal before you wake or return home.”
