Here’s how you and your customers can keep your cool with thermostat control.
Easy is Essential
User-friendly thermostats are essential. No one wants anything that is too complicated or difficult to program. So keep it simple! It has to be easy to program. A large LCD display doesn’t hurt either, with on-screen display and easy navigation and programming to appeal to every user.
Flexibility is Key
A programmable thermostat needs to be truly programmable, not just able to set to night and day. Being able to set day and time specific personal comfort levels is really important. 7-day scheduling and flexible 5/1/1 schedules help homeowners use the right thermostat for their homes and their schedules.
