Thermostats have improved dramatically from just setting the temperature and walking away, and Gulfshore Air has a variety of thermostats that will fit your individual needs.

The most common types of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a number of options and features available on today’s market.

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 has 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 setting the temperature automatically. You can walk out the door with one less thing to think about.
  • Smart thermostats take it to the next step and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature changes that you make and learn from your behavior which means it can begin making adjustments on its own. Many of the newer and more advanced thermostats tap in to your home’s Wi-Fi network, permitting you to control your home’s temperature from anywhere using an app through your phone or computer. These thermostats can often be configured to gather your energy usage figures on a website.

Which Thermostat is Best for You?

Whether you pick a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will be contingent on your unique needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a bit more because of the additional features, both programmable and smart thermostats are great ways to save on your energy expenses while being sure you are comfortable in your home.
