Lutron, a company started back in 1950 by a physicist named Joel Spira. Joel was so fascinated by the effects that the aesthetic manipulation of light had on transforming indoor environments as well as human emotion it led to the invention of a device that would allow people to control the light within the environment of their own home. With one key invention the dimmer, he and his wife Ruth Spira took Lutron from their makeshift lab in New York City and turned it into what is known today as the world’s most innovative lighting, shade and home control solutions product inventor.

Thermostat and Programmable Thermostat: What’s the Difference?

Climate control is a way to regulate the temperature inside your home and your energy costs. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 56% of your home’s energy costs are spent on air conditioning, heating and ventilation (HVAC) systems. Climate control allows a homeowner to manage their heating and cooling systems through programmable thermostats.

A thermostat is a temperature-sensitive switch that controls a home’s conditioning system or single room unit such as a heater, air conditioner or both. Thermostats have basic manual functions such as setting a temperature or simply turning all systems on or off. When a temperature setting has been set and the interior temperature drops below or rises above the thermostat setting, the switch moves to the on position, and your heater or air conditioner runs to warm or cool the air in your home to the setting you selected. Important note, a thermostat must be manually adjusted to change the indoor air temperature.

Conversely, homes that have climate control have something called a smart thermostat also known as a programmable thermostat. While regular thermostats only allow you to adjust the temperature inside your home manually a smart thermostat allows you to do so much more. Programmable thermostats will allow a user to set the temperature and have it change based on the time of day… what’s more is that a smart thermostat also learns user behaviors, allows temperature to be controlled remotely, shows energy consumption in real-time and they can even adjust on their own based on ambient conditions like humidity.
