Electric thermostat timer

Programmable thermostats that save energy by permitting occupants to set temperatures according to whether the house is occupied. These thermostats can automatically store and repeat settings daily with allowance for manual override. By eliminating manual setback, they allow the setting of more comfortable temperatures in the morning before occupants wake. Temperature setback can be adjusted for both heating and cooling seasons. These thermostats typically have a digital interface that allows more precise temperature control and a wider range of options or features.
