Are Multiple Programmable Thermostats the Answer for You?

Programmable Thermostats

You have probably experienced this situation in your home often. You love your home at a comfortable, 72-degree level nearly all of the time, but your spouse, partner or kids want things cooler at 68. The constant battle over the thermostat can be more than everyone can take as people sneak and stealth back and forth, turning the temperature up and down all day and night. These actions not only cause friction in the family, but they can cause havoc with your energy bill as well. There has to be a better way that you can deal with all of this. More homes like yours today are turning to the use of multiple programmable thermostats as the answer for family and temperature harmony.

Zoning Changes Everything

When you have a traditional thermostat, the thermostat reads the air around itself in its immediate location and adjusts use based on that reading. Anything interfering with the air flow around it, causing more air or less air, will cause the thermostat to make adjustments in temperature. Older central air systems and thermostats may be even less reliable and cost you more money to operate in this manner, on top of keeping everyone in the home battling over the thermostat. Going for zoned thermostats can change all of that for you because:

  • Better Control – With zoned thermostats, there is better temperature control for certain portions of the house. Your kids can have the cooler temperatures they want in their upstairs portion of the home while you can keep it warmer downstairs.
  • Accounts for Different Home Areas – Every home has different areas that are hotter or colder than the rest of the house. This is unavoidable, but it can be problematic for you if your room is in an area that has a temperature that makes you uncomfortable. Zoning gives you the chance to compensate for that so you can adjust the temperature appropriately.

New Systems and Thermostats

The newer central air systems that you can get from services like American Clean Air and Heating are much more efficient to run, and when you combine them with thermostats like the Nest thermostat, it can make your system even better. These programmable thermostats are considered “smart” devices so that they learn from your likes and behavior in temperature and adjust on their own. This lets each area of the home optimize the temperature for the right situation and makes things more comfortable.
