How to Select the Best Thermostat Upgrade for Your Pleasanton Home

July 25th, 2016

If your home is too hot or too cold, then it’s probably your thermostat that is no longer functioning well and needs upgrading. Modern technology has come up with thermostats that can be customized to suit the needs of your home.

An upgrade of your thermostat is a smart move towards using energy in your home efficiently thus helping you save on electricity bills. Modern thermostats give you power to control when and how long you leave the thermostat on.
Just like any other device, one thermostat performs different functions from another depending on its features. If you are looking to select the best upgrade thermostat for your home, look out for these features.

  • Programmable Thermostats

This feature enables the thermostat to go on and off with regards to your preferred setting. Depending on your needs, you can choose the thermostat that has a weekday setting or a weekend setting. When you are not in the house and you don’t need the thermostat on, you can choose the setting that is programmed for that. You don’t need to monitor or adjust such a thermostat since it uses the program that you have fed it.

  • Control Where Heating and Cooling Goes

This feature allows the thermostat to control the areas where the heating or cooling is desired. For instance, if a part of your basement is very cold at times and the rest of the house is comfortably cool, you don’t need to heat the entire house. Likewise, if a room is too hot and needs cooling, you can set the thermostat to only cool this room. If your thermostat has this energy saving feature, you will be able to save on energy and only direct the heating or cooling to needing areas only.

  • Humidity Control

Such a feature helps you be in control of the humidity level in your home. If you need different humidity levels in different rooms, look out for this feature because it will allow you to achieve your desired humidity conditions.

  • Vacation Mode

When you are going on holiday, you don’t need that thermostat running. If there is no one benefiting from the cool and comfortable home, it makes no economic sense to leave it running. A thermostat with this energy saving feature lets you change the settings temporarily for the days that you will be away. Some few hours before you return home, you can set the settings back to your normal preference.

  • Sync up with your System

Thermostats come in different display screens. If you want a touch screen for easy control of your thermostat, they are available in the market. It is even possible to buy a model that you can link to your smartphone or laptop, or another similar gadget. If these devices have access to the internet, then you can control your thermostat from wherever you may be.
