Technology is a wonderful thing and it can offer us many opportunities and options. However, too many options can be overwhelming and trying to keep up with technology can be daunting (and sometimes unnecessary). So which thermostat is right for you?
The simplest of all of your choices. These thermostats give you full control. Anyone in the house can walk up to it at any time and adjust the temperature.
One step up from the manual option is the programmable thermostat. These can be scheduled daily, weekly, and even have a separate schedule for weekends. Once set, the thermostat will follow the schedule until it is reprogrammed.
Just as the name states, Wi-Fi thermostats connect to your home’s Wi-Fi. The downloaded app allows you to check the temperature in your house and adjust it. If you are out and decide to go home sooner than expected, you can change the temperature through the app so it is more comfortable when you arrive home.
These thermostats are programmable and accessible from any device that is connected to your Wi-Fi, just like the previous option. The main difference is that smart thermostats learn your behavior. It will predict when you will adjust the temperature according to what it has learned and make the change for you.
