What is the Best Kind of Programmable Thermostat for Your Home?

5.0 Rating


Programmable thermostats come in many different varieties, and what works well for one home might not work best for another. By using the information below, you can narrow down your choices based on your family’s typical weekly schedule and the type of heating system you have installed in your home.

Find a programmable thermostat that matches your heating system

When you’re picking out a thermostat for your home, the first thing you need to do is narrow down your choices based on the type of heating system you have installed. Each different model of thermostat is designed to work with a specific type of heating system, so if you choose one that’s not compatible with what’s installed in your home, the thermostat won’t work properly.

For example, some thermostats are designed to work with single-stage furnaces, while others are designed to work with two-stage furnaces. Furthermore, if you have a heat pump installed in your home, you’ll need to choose a thermostat that is made for heat pumps. If you have any questions about matching a thermostat with your heating system, one of the technicians at Jerry Kelly will be glad to help you out.

Find the best programmable thermostat for your lifestyle

After you’ve narrowed down your thermostat choices based on your home’s heating system, you’ll next want to choose a model that best matches your family’s lifestyle. Here is a breakdown of different types of programmable thermostats based on customization options:

Jerry A. Was very nice and explained everything to me and my wife. He let us know what things would cost. He wore his mask and work shoe covers when inside. He made a uneasy situation enjoyable.
