Wouldn't it be nice if you could control not only what temperature your home's heating and air conditioning system would maintain, but when it would turn on? They have programmable thermostats just for this reason. But not everyone will benefit from a programmable thermostat. To see if you will, consider the following signs:
Sign #1: You're Getting Up in the Middle of the Night to Adjust the Thermostat
Perhaps your thermostat is perfectly set right before bed, but in the middle of the night, you feel that particular temperature is too hot or too cold. With a conventional thermostat, you'd have to go to the thermostat and reset its temperature manually.
With a programmable thermostat, you can program the temperature you want and the time you want it. This can provide greater comfort and convenience for most individuals.
Sign #2: It's Too Hot or Too Cold as Soon as You Return Home
If you're returning home from a day out and consistently feel the last thermostat setting is resulting in a home that's too hot or too cold, you could probably benefit from a programmable thermostat.
For example, if there's a particular time you return home from work in the summer and the indoor temperature is always too hot because you raised the temperature before leaving that morning, you can adjust your programmable thermostat. About 30 minutes before you return home, the thermostat will push its temperature down a few degrees to cool the home. A programmable thermostat allows users to control when the temperature settings changes, along with the temperature it reaches.
Programmable thermostats are useful devices that allow individuals to get the most from their hearing and air conditioning system. To have a programmable thermostat installed in your home or business, contact our team at Griffin Heating & Air Conditioning today.
