Buying products that you may not be familiar with can become confusing. Programmable thermostats are great for those who aren’t home most of the day and want to keep their energy bill low. Here are some tips to help you decide which programmable thermostat is right for you:
• Depending on the type, thermostats can be programmed for each day of the week, the same settings all week long, and/or different settings for weekends.
• Newer thermostats offer a variety of features that include touch-screen controls, remote programming, keyboard locks, and vacation modes. These are wonderful for those who travel often.
• Sometimes the more “complicated” the settings for the less tech savvy type of homeowner, the more difficult it is to program it. Find something that easily fits your lifestyle.
Also, if the weather isn’t too hot or cold, you can always run your fan to keep the temperature in your home comfortable.
