Thermostats by Treat’s Heating & Cooling

Deciding on a non-programmable vs. programmable thermostat isn’t really a hard decision.  The hardest decision is deciding what kind of thermostat will be compatible with your equipment and keeps you and your family comfortable.

Non-programmable thermostats control the temperature in your home.  These thermostats are very basic.  You need to manually adjust the dial to reach the desired temperature in your home.  If you are going to be away from the home you will have to leave the temperature set as it is and adjust it when you return home.  These thermostats are less expensive since they don’t have any fancy features.

Programmable thermostats automatically set back the temperature in your home based on a predetermined schedule.  The main advantage of a programmable thermostat is that you no longer need to adjust the setting before leaving the house or before bedtime.  You can set your own schedule and the thermostat will automatically adjust as you would like to.

A non-programmable thermostat has the ability to regulate room temperature to one desired setpoint.  The setting on the thermostat must be manually changed if a new temperature setpoint is desired.  Programmable thermostats allow flexibility to homeowners because they can be programmed to match their lifestyle.
