Save With a Programmable or Smart Thermostat

With a programmable thermostat, you can save money and energy by setting the temperature to change based on your schedule. That way, you won’t waste energy conditioning your Charleston, South Carolina, home when you’re away or not in need of much air conditioning. A smart thermostat allows you to control temperature and humidity remotely from your smartphone or tablet. This way, you can conveniently and effectively manage the heating and cooling of your home at any time and from anywhere. Some smart thermostats can also show you how much energy you’re using and make adjustments as necessary. Here are some of the most popular models available.

The Carrier Wi-Fi Thermostat

The Carrier Wi-Fi Thermostat has a convenient mobile app and online tracking with daily and monthly energy reports. That way, you can see when you use the most energy and change your habits to save money. The Carrier thermostat also has a color screen, four-day local weather forecasting, maintenance reminders, and the ability to switch automatically between heating and cooling. It’s compatible with many HVAC systems as well.

The Programmable Touch-N-Go Thermostat

With this thermostat, you can choose between two models. One controls air conditioners and heaters, and one controls heat pumps. They both have a large illuminated display with weekday and weekend programming options. They can switch automatically between heating and cooling, and they remind you when it’s time to replace your air filter. In addition, the Comfort Programmable Touch-N-Go Thermostat comes with a 10-year limited warranty.

The Performance Comfortzone II Zoning System

You can program the Performance Comfortzone II thermostat for up to eight separate zones. Zoning lets you set different temperatures for different areas of your home. That way, you can avoid heating or cooling empty rooms and save money instead. The Comfortzone II also manages humidity, monitors the temperature inside ductwork, and switches between heating and cooling automatically.
