The days of non-programmable thermostats are just about over and the same goes for traditional programmable thermostats as well. As we move toward smart home technology, the next evolution of heating and cooling in the home is among us. So, what are some of the differences between traditional and Wi-Fi thermostats? Find out below:
In the past, thermostats were broken up into two categories: non-programmable and programmable. Although they are the most affordable option, non-programmable thermostats aren’t very practical. You have to manually change the temperature every time you are too warm or too cold, and they tend to consume much more energy than their programmable counterparts.
Programmable thermostats use a time period programming method which automatically adjusts the heat or cool temperature based on the time of day. While they were once considered the best, neither of these styles compare to the technology available in Wi-Fi thermostats today.
Wouldn’t you like some energy efficiency feedback so you know when and where you can save on your energy bills? How about being able to set the temperature in your home even while you’re away from your smartphone or tablet? All of this is possible with Wi-Fi thermostats.
