What is a Programmable Thermostat?
A programmable thermostat adjusts the temperature in your home based on pre-programmed settings that you are able to select. This type of thermostat allows you to choose which days and which times of the day you’d like your air or heat to turn on and at what temperature you’d like your house to be during those times.
Who can Benefit from a Programmable Thermostat?
Anyone interested in saving money and energy! They work particularly well for those who work away from home during the day or at night, travel a lot or like to turn the thermostat down when they are sleeping.
Programmable Thermostat Benefits
Gives you more control
With a programmable thermostat, you have complete control over the temperature of your house at all hours of the day. A lot of people like to turn down the temperature at night when they are sleeping. Some like to turn off the air or heat while they are at work or on vacation. You simply have to set these preferences one time and the programmable thermostat will do the work for you from then on. Many thermostats also allow you to have different settings for each day of the week so your workdays and weekends can be on separate schedules.
With a programmable thermostat, you can set the air or heat to switch back on an hour or two before you come home so you’re always returning to a comfortably heated or cooled house.
Because you are able to vary the temperature of your home or completely turn the air and heat off when you don’t need it, you’ll be saving a tremendous amount of energy throughout the year.
With decreased energy usage comes higher efficiency and smaller utility bills. By just varying your temperature a couple degrees for a couple hours each day, you will see hundreds in savings throughout the course of a year.
Extends equipment life
Because your equipment won’t have to work as hard during certain days of the week or certain times of the day, it will help to extend the overall lifespan of your equipment.
