How Programmable Thermostats are Important for your Home


Programmable thermostats are important when you want to keep your HVAC system in your home working efficiently. With a programmable thermostat, you can set the temperature for certain hours of the day, and days of the week. This is beneficial if your schedule is generally consistent from day to day. If your work week is the same each day, you can set the thermostat to be at the ideal temperature once you arrive home. It will also help to reduce costs because the system will not be operating when you are not home.

There are several different makes and models of programmable thermostats on the market. If you are unsure, you can always contact us for the correct one that would be beneficial for your home and lifestyle. Working from Monday to Friday, and having the weekends off is a good schedule for a 5-2 or a 5-1-1 model. This allows Monday through Friday to be programmed the same, while setting the weekend differently. Reducing the amount of time that the system operates will help you to save on monthly energy costs as well.

Another benefit of a programmable thermostat can be that you can set or change it from a smart phone or tablet. This allows you to make changes, without having to be right next to the thermostat. If you are coming home earlier or later than originally planned, you can access it on your phone to adjust the temperature as needed. You can even change the temperature if you are in another room of your home and want to adjust it. A programmable thermostat can also help to alert you to important maintenance as well, like when the filter should be changed. This helps you to keep the system operating correctly so you have the best air in your home.
