Programmable thermostats make using your HVAC system more convenient. They also help you conserve more energy. When shopping for a new thermostat for your Las Vegas, NV, home, you have a lot to consider. Read on to learn more about the top three must-have features in a new programmable thermostat.
Zoned Heating and Cooling
Customizing multiple climate zones throughout your home helps keep everyone in the household comfortable and happy. Zoned heating and cooling settings give you ultimate control to make each corner of your home the perfect temperature. As a result, you won’t have to argue over the thermostat settings anymore.
Not all programmable thermostats work the same. If you want advanced features like mobile device syncing, Bluetooth capabilities or home assistive device compatibility, you need a smart thermostat. The intuitive technology of these thermostats allows it to learn your household’s habits and adjust the temperature based on this information. You get better heating and cooling that helps you save the most energy.
Smart thermostats also give you more control when you’re away from home. Using the thermostat’s app, you can adjust and monitor your home’s temperature from anywhere in the world.
Whether you install a traditional programmable thermostat or a smart thermostat, you want the thermostat to have the sensing feature. This feature senses when a person enters the room and adjusts the temperature to a pre-determined comfort setting. Don’t mistake the sensing feature for learning. There’s a difference.
Learning thermostats fall into the smart thermostat category. They self-program based on movement patterns learned over a short time. Usually, learning thermostats begin self-programming within five to seven days.
