How a Programmable Thermostat can save you Money

 

 

Having a programmable thermostat in your home can help to save you money. The first way it can save money is by not having the furnace run constantly. With a programmable thermostat, you can set the temperature in your home for certain hours of the day and for each day of the week. There are several models of thermostat to choose from. Depending on your home and lifestyle, we can help recommend which one would be best for you. One thermostat can program the weekdays the same, and then the weekend differently. Another model can have weekdays the same, and Saturday can be set differently than Sunday. The third most common model allows each day to be set differently.

Manual Override

A programmable thermostat can also have a manual override. So you can change it anytime you desire. If it comes with wi-fi capability, you can adjust the thermostat from your smart phone or tablet as well. This is a benefit incase you need to adjust the temperature when you are just leaving work or on your way home. This can also be used in the chance you are taking longer to get home than you expected. When you set the temperature on the thermostat, it can be lowered for when you are away. Then it can rise to the desired temperature just before you get home. This allows you to walk into a warm home.

Saving Money

Since the thermostat will only run when you need it, you will notice that the monthly energy bills may not be as high either. That is because the furnace will not have to operate when you are not there, and waste heat. If you are not sure what type of thermostat would be right for your home, contact us. We can also help to answer any questions you may have about thermostats or your HVAC system.
