7 Day Vs. 5/2 Day Thermostats
7 Day Programmable Thermostats: This type of thermostat allows you to set multiple on and off periods during each day of the week to match your routine schedules. Venstar thermostats offer this 7 day feature along with many others to suite your needs.
Examples of 7 day programming:
Monday-Wednesday: 6 a.m. – 12 p.m. (work), 2:30-3:20 (picking up kids), 5:00-6:45 (baseball practice)
Thursday 7:30-8:00 (dropping off kids),2:30-3:20 (picking up kids), 6:00-9:00 (date night)
Friday: 7:30-8:00 (dropping off kids), 2:30-3:20 (picking up kids)
Saturday: Home All Day
Sunday: 11:00-12:30 (Sunday Brunch)
5 & 2 Day Programmable Thermostats: This type of thermostat allows you to program your weekday (5 days) schedule and your weekend (2 day) schedule with multiple on and off periods in these two programming periods. Unlike the seven day type, this thermostat cannot be programmed for individual days. If this thermostat is best for you, we recommend the ProSelect thermostat.
Examples of 5 & 2 day programming:
Monday-Friday: System turned off from 7:00am-5pm (work) and 7:00pm-8:30 (soccer practice)
Saturday-Sunday: System turned off from 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. (errands) and 5:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m. (eating out)
