Some “smart” models even give you the capability to make changes to your settings when you’re not even home. Remote access allows you to program your thermostat over the Internet, via a wireless connection.

You’ve heard about the efficiency of heat pumps in terms of heating and cooling your home, but did you know that heat pumps can be used to effectively heat your pool, too? That’s right, just as a household heat pump extracts heat from the outdoor air and uses to heat your home during the winter, your pool’s heat pump can tap into the free and unlimited heat of the air to warm your water. In fact, since a heat pump simply moves warm air instead of creating it via another fuel source such as electricity or gas, it is significantly more efficient in terms of energy use.
To save money and energy, many homeowners are switching to a programmable thermostat that allow them to control the amount of heat or cooling air they use during the summer, winter, day and night. By programming the thermostat, a homeowner can reduce their utility bills to a manageable size to fit their budget.
