According to a study cited by The Washington Post:
“Out of 192 people surveyed, 42 percent of respondents saidtheir thermostats were programmable — rather than manual — but many did notseem to know how to use them. 14 percent of those claiming to have programmablethermostats said they “do not know where the settings are” while another 25percent said they “know where the settings are but [they] do not know how tochange them.”
A traditional programable thermostat can be confusing; theycan be overly complicated and frustrate the user. Despite the significantsavings that these programmable thermostats offer, the simple fact is mostpeople aren’t going to be able to take full advantage of them due to theircomplexity.
