At one point, thermostats were nothing more than a switch on the wall, designed to turn your air conditioner on and off. Over time, they became equipped with temperature gauges that allowed the air conditioner to automatically turn on when the room reached a certain temperature. For many years, thermostats served this singular function based on the user’s preferred temperature. Eventually, a timer function was added to an air conditioner’s thermostat giving the user a chance to create weekday and weekend programs that met their cooling needs. Instead of maintaining a cool 68 degrees while the homeowner was at work, the programmable thermostat allowed the homeowner to return home to a comfortable temperature without paying for unnecessary energy expenditure throughout the day. Today, thermostats are one of the easiest upgrades a person can make to create a more energy-efficient home.
Programmable thermostats are designed to change the temperature in your home based on the hours in which your home is occupied. The user is able to set several times and temperature settings, customizing their home’s air conditioning use to their needs. For instance, you may leave home at 7:00 am and return home at 5:00 pm. A programmable thermostat would allow your home to sit at a balmy 80 degrees until 4:45 pm when your air conditioner would turn on, cooling the home for your return.
WiFi-enabled thermostats are equipped with technology that allows you to control your home’s temperature from your smartphone. Where programmable thermostats are ideal if you have the same routine day in and day out, WiFi thermostats, such as the Nest, can be controlled with the touch of a screen. They also come with smart technology that “learns” your daily routines and anticipates your heating and cooling needs.
