You can use a programmable thermostat to save money and energy by controlling your HVAC system even when you’re not inside your Chicago, Illinois, home. That way, you can regulate temperatures to be efficient when you are away and still return to a comfortable home. You can even control many models from your smartphone and set temperature zones so you never have to waste energy conditioning unoccupied areas. Here are some of the most popular programmable thermostats and the features they offer.
The Infinity Remote Access Touch Control
This thermostat can control your home’s temperature, humidity, ventilation, and up to eight zones. It can also control your heat pump and your furnace through Wi-Fi. The simple color touchscreen offers energy use tracking, filter replacement, and other maintenance reminders, weather forecasting, automatic changes between heating and cooling, and more. You can also use the Infinity Touch to control automated features like lights and music.
The Côr Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat
The Côr thermostat also has a color touchscreen, provides weather forecasts, can switch automatically between heating and air conditioning, and offers humidity control. Energy reports and customized tips help you to stay comfortable for less, and you can change your settings by touching just one button. The Côr can send maintenance reminders and replacement reminders for your air filters, UV lamps, and humidifier pads. It’s compatible with many systems, but it only supports three temperature zones.
The Performance Edge Thermostat
Carrier’s Performance Edge programmable thermostat can manage any of the company’s performance or comfort systems, including air conditioners, furnaces, and boilers. Its slim, attractive design comes in seven colors, but the screen doesn’t have a color display. It comes with an optional memory card and a sensor to measure the current outdoor temperature. Like the Côr, the Edge can support three zones and send detailed maintenance reminders.
