Most thermostats are designed around your heating and cooling system. An Aprilaire Programmable Thermostat is designed around you. From the basic to all-inclusive, we have a programmable thermostat that you can program and control based on your lifestyle and comfort needs.
Programmable vs. Non-Programmable Thermostats
A programmable thermostat allows you to heat or cool your home when you need it—reducing energy costs. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends a programmable thermostat to save up to 30% on heating and cooling bills.
To save energy with a non-programmable thermostat, you have to manually lower the heat or air when you need it least (during the workday, at night, etc.) and manually turn it back up. Not only is this inconvenient, it can also be uncomfortable waiting for your house to reach your desired temperature.
An Aprilaire Programmable Thermostat automatically sets the temperature based on your personalized program. The Progressive Recovery feature ensures your home is always at your desired temperature by activating the heating and cooling equipment prior to a scheduled setting.
Example: An Aprilaire Programmable Thermostat knows how long it takes to heat your home. If you set your SLEEP temperature to 62° and your WAKE time and temperature to 6 am and 70°, the heat will come on before 6 am, so it’s 70° when you wake up.
