Why a Programmable Thermostat is Right for your Home



If you have a typical household, heating and cooling costs are one of your largest expenditures. One reason that contributes to those costs is that homeowners frequently heat and cool their homes when it is not needed. A programmable thermostat provides a great way to lower your energy use.

Energy savings

A programmable thermostat can save on energy costs and make your home more comfortable by automatically adjusting the temperature for sleeping, vacation, weekends or workdays. By maintaining the required temperatures for only a few hours a day instead running a continual temperature all day, a digital programmable thermostat can help save energy and reduce your energy costs throughout the year. Within a few years, energy-efficient heating controls can pay for themselves.

Comfort and convenience

Rather than setting the temperature manually, you can program your thermostat in advance to adjust the temperature at different times of the day. You can set the heat to turn on an hour before you wake, to lower during the time you are at work, and then to automatically raise the heat before you come home. With the ability to set multiple temperatures for different times of the day, you have better control of your home comfort.

Reduces Wear & Tear

Overuse of your heating and cooling system can add unnecessary stress and contribute to the need for frequent repairs. By programming your use, you can reduce the time the system is run, while maintaining home comfort. If you notice an issue, make sure to contact us so we can inspect it for you. When the issue is ignored, it can cause more stress to parts of the system, resulting in more damage in the long run. Also remember to have the HVAC system inspected and maintained on a regular basis, as this can help you to have a healthy and comfortable home.
