August 04, 2017

If you are on the lookout for ways to stay comfortable in your Mobile home while saving money, you might want to consider upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have come a long way from setting the temperature and walking away and Climate Control Service Experts has a number of thermostats to handle your unique needs.

The most widespread styles of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a variety of options and features from Climate Control Service Experts.

What is the difference between programmable and smart thermostats?
  • Programmable thermostats mean you can pre-set temperatures for various times of the day and week. You can set the thermostat so that it gives you different temperatures during the day when no one is in your house, or at night when everyone is sleeping. There’s no need to spend 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 leave with one less thing to be concerned with.
  • Smart thermostats take it a step further and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature changes 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 throughout your home using an app through your phone or computer. These thermostats can often be configured to pull your energy usage numbers on a website.

Whether you go with a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will be contingent on your individual needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a little more because of the extra features, both programmable and smart thermostats are great ways to save on your energy expenses while being sure you are cozy in your Mobile home.
