Keeping tabs on energy efficiency is easier with a properly programmed thermostat.
With this crazy winter across the US, it seems energy efficiency is difficult to manage. It's common to get a shock to our systems when our days can go from eighty degrees to fifty in the span of twenty-four hours. It's hard enough adjusting to the changing temperatures ourselves, let alone expecting our thermostats to know when to turn the cool on or put the warmth back into our homes.
Cranking up the thermostat and then turning it down repeatedly really adds up in money and energy use and can be a nuisance. By using a programmed thermostat, you will almost never have to bother with adjusting your thermostat at all. For example, you could go about a daily schedule such as this:
- If you are up at 6:30AM, you could set your thermostat to warm up your house by 6:15AM, so you are waking up to stretches instead of shivers.
- If you leave your home by 7:30AM, you could set your thermostat to allow your home to be at a cooler temperature while no one is home, which could save you up to 15% a year on your heating bill.
- If you return home around 5PM, your thermostat could have your home heated back up around 4:45PM, so you walk in the front door greeted by a cozy environment.
All of this could be done without you ever having to worry about constantly remembering to set your thermostat before and after you get home, go to bed, wake up, etc. In the hectic lives of the modern age, you have enough to worry about.
