The temperature inside your home can have a dramatic effect on comfort levels but it can also play a large role in how much energy your house consumes each month. Upgrading to a programmable thermostat can boost both comfort and savings by keeping temperatures consistent while minimizing usage.
Programmable thermostats allow you to program a number of different temperatures for different days and times. This prevents you from having to pass by the thermostat frequently to adjust the settings in order to accommodate for the fluctuation in temperature that occurs throughout the day. You can set different schedules for heating equipment and cooling equipment based on when you wake each day, when you are home and when you go to bed.
If you are away at work for a large portion of the day or if you are going to leave for an extended vacation, you can reduce how often your HVAC system runs. Setting up a program to minimize usage can keep your indoor air quality comfortable while saving you money.
