If you are searching for ways to stay cozy in your Daytona Beach home while saving on your expenses, you might want to think about upgrading your thermostat. Thermostats have come a long way from setting the temperature and walking away and All American Air Service Experts has a variety of options to handle your unique needs.

The most common kinds of thermostats are programmable and smart thermostats, and there are a number of options and features from All American Air Service Experts.

What is the difference between programmable and smart thermostats?
  • Programmable thermostats allow you to pre-set temperatures for a number of times of the day and week. You can program the thermostat so that it has different temperatures during the day when no one is home, or at night when everyone is asleep. There’s no need to expend energy and money to keep the house cool or warm when no one’s around, so a programmable thermostat helps you save money by adjusting the temperature automatically. You can walk out the door with one less thing to worry about.
  • Smart thermostats take it another step and are more intuitive. They follow the temperature adjustments that you make and learn from your behavior which permits it to begin adjusting on its own. Quite a few of the newer and more advanced thermostats use 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 arranged to pull your energy usage statistics on a website.

Whether you choose a programmable thermostat or smart thermostat will depend on your unique needs, budget and familiarity with technology. While smart thermostats cost a little more because of the added features, both programmable and smart thermostats are decent ways to save on your energy expenses while ensuring you are comfortable in your Daytona Beach home.
