Much more precise than conventional models, the programmable thermostat greatly diminishes temperature fluctuations and allows you to live more comfortably. When set at 20°C, the unit will activate, on average, when room temperature varies between 19.5°C and 20.5°C. Compare this to conventional thermostats, which activate at temperatures between 18°C and 22°C. Not only does it provide more comfort, but it also allows you to gain considerable energy savings (7 to 10%) at a minimal cost.
