Can I connect electric heater with a programmable thermostat?

it doesn't really matter which thermostat you buy,as long as it has a switch that will let you set it for gas or electric heat,which most do.then just wire it the same way you would any other one
rc=red cool-rh=red heat (jumper wire)-y= yellow a/c -w,white=heat-g,green=fan if you go by this you'll be cooling and heating with the best of them,but remember when you buy things like program able thermostats you get what you pay for,trane,honeywell,& white rogers are some of the better ones to look into buying

Well, yes but it’s only true for Nest 2nd Generation and 3rd Generation Thermostats.

Programmable Thermostat?

Thermostats are pretty simple devices, so it doesn't matter what the brand of your A/C is. What does matter is the type of system you have. Around here the most common is a gas forced-air furnace with an A/C, single stage. If you have a 2-stage heat or A/C, a heat pump, oil, baseboard heat, etc, you will need to make sure the thermostat can handle it, but it sounds like you don't. The basic system will have these connections: W (heat), Y (compressor, A/C), G (fan), and R (the power the thermostat connects to the others to get things to turn on). You may also have a C (common, there is 24V between C and R) which in some systems is called B or something else. Many programmable thermostats need batteries, but if you get one that can be powered by the thermostat (using the C and R) then it will not need batteries. Make sure you know which wire is on the old thermostat (the colors MAY match the letters, but don't have to). Don't let the wires touch (shorting R to C will probably blow a fuse in the furnace).

Programmable thermostat?

Turning it off at night is the same thing as turning it down. Your heat will only turn on if the temperature drops below that setting. The lower you set the temperature at, the more money you can potentially save because the less total time the heater runs. The total time is less because it requires less time per degree to heat when it is closer to the outside temperature. Also, the temperature drops more slowly the closer the inside gets to the outside temperature. If you were heating to a higher temperature, the total time of running the heat would be more because the temperature drops at a faster rate and rises at a slower rate. The same thing works in reverse in the summer. If it is colder than 60 degrees onside, I flip my programmable thermostat to the heat setting, which means it heats to 60 when I am there, 55 when I am sleeping, and 50 when I am away. If it is warmer than 80 degrees, I flip my programmable thermostat to the cool setting, which means it cools to 80 degrees when I am there and sleeping, and 90 when I am away. This is a 40 degree away difference and a 20 degree at home difference which allows for the maximum amount of savings over the course of the year. It can get uncomfortable at first, but you can get used to it and adjust with your clothing/blankets/etc. If the temperature is anywhere between 60-80, my heating or cooling does not run at all which means my electricity bill is near zero. Also, since I live in an apartment, my downstairs neighbor helps heat and cool my apartment as long as their heat and cool settings are higher and lower than mine, which I assure you for most sane people it is.

Wifi connected but no internet access?

Check that you have connectivity by plugging in the ethernet cable and attempting to browse.
If unable to browse, re-enter your ISP Login details on the router.
If you do not know how to please call your ISP.

If you have internet connection

Check your DNS servers addresses

- Control Panel
- Network and Sharing Center
- Change adapter settings
- Right Click Wireless Network Connection go to Properties
- Double click Internet Protol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
- Set DNS server option to: Use the the following DNS server addresses
- Enter the DNS server addresses if unsure consult with ISP

Win XP
- Control Panel
- Network Connections
- Right Click Wireless Network Connection go to Properties
- Double click Internet Protol (TCP/IPv4)
- Set DNS server option to: Use the the following DNS server addresses
- Enter the DNS server addresses if unsure consult with ISP

Smart thermostats can be divided into two broad categories- ones that offer internet connectivity to allow you to program and manage the thermostat and learning thermostats that automatically learn about your references to eliminate the need to program them manually. There are some great options in both of these categories.There are some other great smart thermostats, like Ecobee thermostats that recently came up with e]ecobee 3, Honeywell thermostats with its Prestige series of smart thermostats and much more. These thermostats too, come with features, like Wifi connectivity, remote management through mobile and laptop and learning features with the help of which they program themselves to suit your preferences automatically - Advantages of Using a Wifi Thermostat

Actually this depends on the type of router you are using. Most of the routers have bandwidth control function but, they will allow to control the speed of all connected devices at once. Login to your router >> Check for Bandwidth Control Option >> Enable and set bandwidth. Assigning different bandwidth to different devices is not possible directly. So, there is an hack to do so.Set DHCP server to Off. (Now you need to assign IP's manually to each and every device.)Now configure rule as above. Make 2-3 rules ! Ex:  for Ip range 0.100 - 0.105 speed will be 1Mbps and from 0.106 to 0.110 speed will be 2Mbps etc.Now assign ip to device according to your need. If you want to give 1mbps speed to that device, add the IP of that range and if 2Mbps then IP of range 106 to 110.

Phone's WiFi slows down internet connection?

As I've gathered your issue is your S5 slows down your wifi after it connects connect? The other guy Mamianka seems to either not read the question or is putting his own issues down.

The S5 can slow down your home internet (especially if you're on DSL like me), if you have Google + backups enabled, dropbox, Google Drive, YouTube preloading, or anything in the background such as Skype. Any of those will continuously drain your connection.

I have a 3MB/s DSL connection. It can stream YouTube in 720p on my PC, just fine when my S5 is on 4G LTE.
Once I enable Wifi on my S5, my 3MB/s DSL gets like 0.72 MB/s on speedtest when I test it on my desktop PC.

That's because my phone is constantly backing up photos to Google +.

After I disabled that, my S5 can stay on Wifi, and my PC gets like 287Kbps or 2.56MB/s to 2.89MB/s via

Try doing what I said above.

If it still is slow, then try disabling background data, then connecting to wifi. Hopefully then your other devices (Desktop PC, Xbox, PS3 etc) won't suffer poor speeds.

PS: Mamianka I have the same issue as the OP, but my Desktop PC is connected via Ethernet (aka wired connection), gets up to 2.92MB/s, but when my S5 would connect to the router my Desktop's speeds would fall to as bad as 0.56MB/s.

Obviously Yes,The Etherenet Cable Connection from Router to Laptop decrease The Speed of Other Wifi Users. As the ethernet cable shares the bandwidth of the network with access point to router which create Wifi hotspots, So if I increase The Ethernet Cable Connection, Automatically The Portion of bandwidth available is reduced for Wifi.That's why we can say this...
