Programmable thermostats translate into increased energy efficiency for your HVAC, which means cost savings for you.
If you’re considering a programmable thermostat and have heard how it will improve your HVAC’s energy efficiency, you’re ahead of the pack. When you stop to think about the recent projections of the average U.S. citizen spending over two thousand dollars on their energy and utility bills, it’s easy to conclude that a programmable thermostat is a wise investment for your home.
Having a programmable thermostat installed helps in more ways than one:
- Heating and Air Conditioning Control: When you use an “old school” thermostat, your HVAC system has no choice but to kick on and off in a constant attempt to keep your home at the temperature you have set. This causes it to use more energy than necessary. A programmable thermostat knows precisely when to trigger the furnace or air conditioner to provide customized climate control.
- Heating and Cooling When You Need It: You have the ability to significantly cut energy costs by programming your thermostat to adjust the temperature of your home during the night, while you’re at work, or before you come home. Basically, no more constant running for your HVAC systems in an attempt to keep your home at just one set temperature.
- Energy Savings and Cost Savings: From beginning to end, you have the potential to save money as programmable thermostats are not very costly to install, but you will notice the difference on your energy bills right away. Therefore, from the time it is “plugged in” to the first time it adjusts the temperature of your home, you begin saving money.
