Thermostats are never one size fits all, so here are a few details to help you pick a thermostat that best fits your and your family’s needs.
There are 5 major types of thermostats:
Standard/ Manual Thermostat
These thermostats are all about simplicity. You set the temperature manually and these models make a lot of sense for people who are home often and prefer to keep their homes at a fixed temperature.
These are the most common type of thermostat in Orlando. They have a more aesthetically pleasing design, and have the convenience and readability of simple digital displays. They need to be set manually and are still a good fit for those who don’t often change the temperature of their home.
Programmable thermostats are probably the best fit for most people. They can be set manually, but can also be programmed to raise the temperature of your home while you are at work and cool back down before you ever get home (opposite when in heating mode), saving you a lot of money on your utility bill while never inconveniencing you. They are also a great fit for people who like to cool their house even more at night when they are sleeping, or don’t like to wake up and get out of bed in a cold house.
REM Thermostats (Remote Energy Management)
REM thermostats are all about convenience. REM Thermostats allow you to set, program, and monitor your heating and cooling system from a computer, smartphone or tablet. Many can also be tied to your home alarm system, the lighting in your home, or other electronic devices. They are extremely convenient and can also save you a lot of money on your utility bills.
Learning thermostats work much like programmable thermostats, but don’t require you to program them. They are designed to learn as you use them and create a schedule based on your preferences. They can turn themselves down when you’re not home, guide you to energy-efficient settings, and provide monthly energy reports. Learning thermostats can also be monitored, set, and managed remotely from a computer, smartphone, or tablet.
