Question: What is the difference between a programmable and non-programmable thermostat?

Programmable thermostats allow flexibility to homeowners because they can be programmed to match their lifestyle. A programmable thermostat will keep you and your home comfortable while you are there to enjoy it and will change the set point at programmed times to an energy saving level when you are not home. By simply planning your schedule, you can enjoy the benefits of personalized comfort and enhanced energy savings.
