What’s the Difference Between Smart and Programmable Thermostats? 

If you are looking for ways to stay comfortable in your Dallas home while saving money, you might want to consider upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have been upgraded quite a bit from setting the temperature and walking away and Levy & Son Service Experts has a variety of options to handle your specific needs. 

The most common kinds of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a variety of options and features from Levy & Son Service Experts. 

What is the difference between programmable and smart thermostats? 

  • Programmable thermostats allow you to pre-set temperatures for various times of the day and week. You can setup the thermostat so that it has different temperatures during the day when no one is home, or at night when everyone is sleeping. There’s no need to devote energy and money to keep the house cool or warm when it’s empty, so a programmable thermostat helps you save money by adjusting the temperature automatically. You can walk out the door with one less thing to think about. 
  • Smart thermostats take it a step further and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature adjustments that you make and learn from your behavior which allows it to begin making changes on its own. Many of the newer and more advanced thermostats use your home’s Wi-Fi network, allowing you to control your home’s temperature from anywhere using an app through your phone or computer. These thermostats can often be configured to gather your energy usage figures on a website. 

Whether you go with a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will depend on your unique needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a tad more because of the additional features, both programmable and smart thermostats are great ways to save on your energy costs while making sure you are comfortable in your Dallas home.
