A Honeywell thermostat allows you to control the ambient temperature in your home. With a programmable thermostat, you can set different temperatures throughout the day, such as lowering the thermostat while you are at work. Programmable thermostats eliminate the need to monitor the thermostat and save you money by automatically adjusting when you are sleeping or away from your home. A Honeywell thermostat has simple, easy to use controls.
