Most people don’t program their thermostats because it’s complicated. With this one step you can save up to 20 percent on every heating bill. While savings are great, that doesn’t make it less complicated. A learning thermostat will. All you do is change the temperature for a few days as you need it, say when you go to sleep, when you wake up and while you’re gone during the day.
After a few days the thermostat “learns” your patterns and will set itself to accommodate your needs. If that’s not smart enough, a learning thermostat senses when no one is in the house and will not heat or cool while you’re gone. It also learns how long it takes to heat or cool your home and will show you how long to reach your desired temperature. It can even find ways to help you lower your energy bill. All this adds up to more money in your pocket instead of just blowing out the windows.
