If you take a quick look at your utility bill, you’ll probably notice that heating and cooling make up a large bulk of your energy usage. An easy way to better control how much energy you use is by installing a programmable thermostat in your home. Switching from a manual to a programmable thermostat can add convenience and comfort to your home in more ways than one.
Save Money: The best benefit of a programmable thermostat is its ability to save you money. You can adjust the temperature in your home to the exact level you’re comfortable at and even create a schedule that follows you and your family’s needs. This will keep everyone as warm or cool as they’d like to be while lowering your energy usage when you’re not home.
Have Consistent Temperatures: Programmable thermostats can help you maintain a steady, constant temperature in your home. Rather than cranking the AC during a heat wave or blasting the heat during a cold patch, you’ll be able to achieve a consistent temperature.
Take Advantage of Timing: Programmable thermostats allow you to take advantage of different times of the day and outside temperatures. For example, when the afternoon sun starts to naturally warm your home, you can lower your heat to reduce your energy usage since you don’t need to have it as high in that moment.
Control from Afar: If you have a Smart programmable thermostat, you can sync it to your phone or computer to control the temperature in your home wherever you are. Did you go on a long vacation and realize you forgot to turn down the thermostat? No worries! Just do it from your phone, and you’re all set.
