Why You Should Consider a Programmable Thermostat Upgrade

For most homes, staying warm in winter and cool in summer represents some of the most significant home expenditures each month. Part ofIndoor Air Quality the reason heating and cooling costs are such a large part of monthly expenses is that the furnace or air conditioner often runs when no one is home. Installing a programmable thermostat is a great way to lower your energy costs and prolong the life of your unit.

Automation is the Future
As American homes incorporate more automation from sound systems to entertainment, lighting and beyond, it only makes sense that automating the temperature of your home should become a natural progression. But convenience isn’t the only reason to think about a programmable thermostat upgrade in your home.

How it Works
Older thermostats have you set the temperature each time you desire a change. A programmable thermostat allows you to pre-set the temperature, including temperature changes – for the entire day or week. With a programmable thermostat you can work during the day and have it warm up just before everyone gets home. The thermostat can automatically lower temperatures while you sleep and raise them again just before everyone gets up in the morning. You only heat (or cool) your home when you really need it.

Real Savings
Controlling the temperature can help families trim up to 30 percent of energy expenses. You pay for the heat or cool when you are home and awake and not when you are away or asleep. A programmable thermostat can be pre-set to suit workday, weekend or vacation schedules. Why pay for heating or cooling when you aren’t even in your home? With an updated thermostat, you don’t have to any longer.
