The Benefits of Programmable Thermostats


Heating and cooling costs consume the majority of your home’s energy budget. In fact, these functions alone are probably costing you upwards of $1,000 every month. The good news is you can actually cut that bill by nearly $200 a year by simply switching from a manual thermostat to a programmable thermostat.

Programmable thermostats are relatively easy to install and offer easy programming, unique display options, and even unique access via a smartphone or internet. Additionally, these units deliver cost savings, optimized comfort, and easy access.

Energy Savings That Really Stack Up

A programmable thermostat makes it particularly easy to adjust your thermostat for periods when you need it most. To really amp up your savings, you want to aim to setback your consumption for a period of at least eight hours. Additionally, turning back your unit by one degree for an eight-hour period will save you roughly one percent on your energy bill.

Use the programmable thermostat to set your heat or AC back anywhere from five to 10 degrees while you’re gone from your home during the day or at night. By doing so, you’ll be able to stack up energy savings anywhere from five to 20 percent.

Home Temperature Regulation for Optimal Comfort

Even with a manual thermostat you can adjust the temperature setting to save energy and money. However, you have to physically manipulate the unit to do so, which means you may come home or wake up to an excessively warm or cool home depending on the season. Use your programmable thermostat to keep the temperature at an optimal temperature all the time. Use the unique settings to program your system to warm up or cool down the house before you wake up or come home.

Easy Access to Program From Anywhere

How many times have you had to run home to adjust your home’s temperature before a long trip or other outing? With a programmable thermostat, you’ll never have to worry about it again. Most units today feature instant access via a smartphone or internet connection, so take advantage of this unique, convenient feature.
