What a Smart Thermostat Does
When you invest in a programmable thermostat, you don’t have to worry about manually adjusting the temperature every time you come home from work or leave for vacation. You can simply tell it what your preferred temperatures and when to switch, and it takes over from there. The benefits are clear: not only will you effortlessly feel more comfortable in your home, but it can also help make your HVAC system more cost- and energy-efficient.
How It Can Help
Heating and Cooling When You Need It
It doesn’t make sense to heat or cool your home to the same level even when you’re not there, and you shouldn’t have to remember to punch buttons as you run out the door. According to the Department of Energy, simply turning your AC down or your heating system up by seven to eight degrees for eight hours a day can save you up to 10 percent a year on your HVAC bills. With a programmable thermostat, making that change is easy! You simply have to find the right system for your home and your needs, and then program it to understand your schedule and your preferred temperatures.

Heating and Cooling Where You Need It
If you live in a larger house, you can probably benefit from a smart thermostat made to handle different “zones.” Your home is naturally split into zones, after all, from the living room to the bedroom, the kitchen to the office. Not every zone has the same heating and cooling needs, and one temperature setting for your entire home doesn’t always make sense. The downstairs doesn’t need to be heated when you’re asleep upstairs, and you’re probably enjoying your morning coffee in the kitchen rather than your bedroom. With a programmable thermostat like the Carrier® Infinity® Touch, you can regulate temperature, humidity, airflow, and more for up to eight zones at a time, optimizing your comfort and your energy usage.
