A thermostat controls more than just the temperature in your home – it regulates your comfort and your budget. If you have an outdated thermostat, you may notice your home becoming too hot or too cold. Newer thermostats are built with the latest technology to better regulate your comfort. In addition, new energy-saving thermostats can slash your energy bills up to 20%.

There are a few different types of thermostats – so which one is best suited for your home? Non-programmable thermostats need a person to physically adjust temperature settings. These thermostats are usually inexpensive but don’t do a lot to help reduce energy bills. Programmable thermostats automatically adjust temperature settings based on preset preferences. These models are convenient and time-saving – here is where you will start to see energy bill savings. Wireless thermostats give a homeowner the ability to remotely adjust temperature settings. While this type of thermostat has a slightly higher price tag, they offer extreme convenience and functionality. Homeowners especially find this handy if they have pets at home during the day, or handicapped or elderly individuals living in the home. The most advanced type of thermostat is a smart thermostat. This thermostat learns a homeowner’s temperature preferences throughout the day and automatically adjusts the home’s temperatures based on these patterns. This can even happen on a room-by-room basis. The most advanced models can sense when there is no movement in a particular room or the house as a whole and adjust accordingly. There is also a feature called geo-fencing. Using this feature, a homeowner can set up a perimeter around their home based on a distance of their choosing. Then, when the homeowner enters this perimeter, the thermostat automatically adjusts the heating or cooling back on. Imagine stepping into your toasty or cooled home without even thinking about it! This type of thermostat almost always includes remote access and sometimes even voice control. They are generally the most expensive type of thermostat but will save you the most in the long run on heating and cooling bills.
