How Learning Thermostats are Different from Programmable Thermostats

Your thermostat is key to how much your energy bills are every month. Simply programming your thermostat for stretches when you’re sleeping or away can make a big impact without having a negative affect on your comfort levels. Depending on the model of your thermostat, you might benefit from a lot of additional features.

At Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc, we’ve got an array of programmable thermostats to meet your needs—from the most simple models to the state-of-the-art learning thermostats. How do you know what is best for your space? First, learn the difference between basic programmable thermostats and advanced learning models. Both can help you save energy and money, but you’ll need to decide which features are most important to your home.

Most programmable thermostats will give you the chance to schedule your days to control temperatures when you’re usually there and gone. Depending on the model you select, you may be able to input one schedule, which you may end up overriding on days you are actually home. Some models will allow you to program your weekdays on one schedule and your weekends on another. You’ll also want to check the number of periods during each day you can set up. For instance, will you want the temps different when you sleep, when you wake up, when you’re at work and when you are home in the evening? Be sure the thermostat you select can adapt to your needs.

For some individuals, being able to arrange a regular schedule (or two) and override it when needed is plenty. But if you want additional flexibility, it’s probably time to buy a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat lets you completely customize a heating and cooling schedule for every day of the week.

Not only are smart thermostats more flexible, but they’re also Wi-Fi enabled so you can manage your home’s temperature regardless of where you are. Some types of smart thermostats take innovation even further—these are called “learning thermostats.” Learning thermostats do everything a regular smart thermostat can do, but they can also learn from your behaviors and adapt your heating and cooling schedules based on your actual daily activity. Some models don’t even need to be programmed—you just turn them on and give them time to figure everything out on their own after a short amount of time.

So, no matter what your heating and cooling wants are, Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc will help you find the most appropriate thermostat for your home and budget. You’ll get to enjoy ultimate home comfort with potential energy savings. Call us at 561-612-0242 to hear more, or arrange an appointment with us online.
