Initial Steps of Programming a Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats are capable of learning your habits in time and will know when to set a specific temperature in each room. Until that happens, you have to teach it by going through the initial programming sequence.


Here is what you need to do:


  1. Find the Time Cadence Your Thermostat Supports

Some thermostats allow you to make schedules for each day, for an entire week, or for workday/weekend cycles.  Depending on its abilities, you will set your preferred schedule, knowing what rooms you and your family are most likely to use each day.


  1. Set Temperatures Depending on Room Usage

Thermostats usually offer you three types of temperature settings:

  • Home
  • Away
  • Sleep.


In general, temperatures for “away’ and “sleep” modes should be set 7 to 10 degrees lower than for “home”. This will help you save on your energy bill without compromising on comfort.


  1. Update the Schedule at Seasonal Changes

Last but not least, remember to update your temperature preferences at the end of summer and at the end of winter. Depending on the climate in your area, you may have to make these changes three or four time per year. However, soon enough, the smart thermostat will learn your preferred temperatures in each season and adjust them automatically.  Any of the air conditioner Denver technicians can install a smart thermostat system in your home or office.
