I am aware that there are all kinds of super fancy thermostats
coming out now.
But this one change on older style programmable thermostats
will save homeowners millions and save energy:
When a programmable thermostat is set to Hold Temperature
(because, say, you are working from home today,
therefore set the temperature higher) -- it should revert to
the Run Program mode, automagically, when the next stage
of the program (i.e. the next time setting) is arrived at.
||really? haven't seen that, but I guess time to upgrade
||Heating controllers generally have a programme
mode where you can set daily 'on' and 'off' times;
pressing the override button turns the heating on if
it was off, or off it was on, until the next
programmed time. Hence, if you are working from
home, it's only one button press to leave the
heating on all day.
