Web-enabled Programmable Thermostat

One of the largest contributors to any household energy bill is temperature regulation. Large portions of an average household energy bill are spent on heating and cooling the house. However, you can easily save some money by switching your programmable thermostat with a web-enabled programmable thermostat. A web-enabled programmable thermostat is a thermostat that can be linked to the internet enabling you to have access to your thermostat via your computer or web enabled phone.

The main advantage of a web-enabled programmable thermostat is that you have even greater flexibility than ever before. You can now program your thermostat from anywhere in the world as long as you have internet access. An example of this advantage is if you plan on staying late at work. If you have a normal programmable thermostat, the temperature of your home will be adjusted to your normal time of arrival. This will waste energy as you will not be at home till much later. However, if you have a web-enabled programmable thermostat, you can easily log in from your computer at work or your mobile phone and program your thermostat to regulate the temperature of your home at a later time. This will save you valuable dollars and bring down your energy bill. In addition to this, you will not be wasting energy and contributing to global warming.

The web interface of a web-enabled programmable thermostat usually contains three sections. One section is for altering temperature. Another section is to change the settings of your thermostat. The final section is for viewing reports. In the first section you will be able to alter the temperature of your home as well as turn your thermostat on or off. Furthermore you will be able to reprogram your thermostat and check your currents settings. Some web-enabled programmable thermostats have a feature to check the weather at your residence in this section as well. You will also be able to adjust the thermostat for multiple days if you are on vacation. Under the settings section, you will be able to manage your preferences and access your registration details. Some types of web-enabled programmable thermostats have reminders in this section as well. In addition, you will be able to change your preferences in this section. In the reports section, you will be able to visually see how the temperature of your home has been altered over time.

Web-enabled programmable thermostats are extremely handy instruments to have. They will reduce your energy bill and help make the world a greener place.
