For specific questions about a specific model, please refer to the owner’s manual or check online at the manufacturer’s website.
Know Your Device Type
There are three main types of programmable thermostats. Make sure to choose the one that best fits your family schedule and budget.
5 + 2 - this basic type offers 2 program settings. One for a weekday schedule and another for weekend
5 + 1 + 1 - To get more weekend flexibility, this type lets you set weekday schedule , one for Saturday , and one for Sunday
7 day - the most versatile type letting you set a different schedule for each day of the week
No matter which type you choose, the basic steps are generally the same for programming. The first step is to identify your typical schedule by either - day, week and/or weekend.
You will need to know...
● What time you get up ....this will be your Awake setting
● What time you leave....this will be your Day setting
● What time do you generally return....this will be your Evening setting
● And what time do you go to bed...this is for your Sleep setting
For each of these settings - you also need to set a desired temperature. For best results, try setting at a temperature for a longer period of time, such as eight hours at night and the same during the day when you're away at school or work.
Georgia Power recommends setting your thermostat to 78 degrees in summer and 68 in winter.
When setting your programmable thermostat during summer, adjust the temperature up another 7 degrees when you leave and up 4 degrees while sleeping.
In Winter - drop by 8 degrees while away and 8 as well for sleeping.
By using the programmable thermostat to adjust when you are not home from the recommended 78 and 68 setting, you are saving money and energy while still keeping your home comfortable for when you arrive.
Usage & Maintenance Tips
● Resist the urge to consistently override the pre-programmed settings. This will lead to using more energy and higher bills.
● Set the “hold or vacation” button at a constant energy-saving temperature when going away for the weekend or on vacation.
● Make sure to properly set and frequently check your time and date and daylight savings time settings.
● If your thermostat runs on batteries, we suggest changing them at least once a year
We hope these tips for properly using a programmable thermostat help keep your home comfortable and your energy costs lower.
