What electronic thermostat should I get?
There are many types of electronic thermostats. Some are smart whereas others can be programmable or non-programmable.
Smart home thermostats: the best option
Electronic thermostats for the smart home, like the ones from the Wi-Fi and Zigbee product lines, are the best for greater comfort and higher energy savings. These electronic thermostats can be controlled remotely from any smartphone, tablet or computer depending on the management platform used.
Smart thermostats can be controlled from anywhere, at any time, making it possible to manage the heating consumption with great precision. For instance, you can remotely lower the set temperature if you plan on returning later than expected from the office or reactivate your thermostat while you’re on the road to return to a comfortable home when coming back from vacation.
Heating represents about 54% of your electricity bill. It’s more than half of all the electricity you use at home! Imagine if you could remotely control your heating to reflect your actual needs. You could save so much.
Programmable and non-programmable thermostats
Programmable and non-programmable thermostats can be interesting if you have the same routine every day or if you are willing to lower manually the thermostat setpoint every time you leave the house. Of course, this last option also implies that you will be coming back to a cold house…
In addition to its smart thermostats, Sinopé Technologies also offers options of non-programmable electronic thermostats.
