Programmable thermostats may seem like unnecessary technology, but they can save you money and make your home more comfortable.
Programmable thermostats use a clock to set up different time periods for temperatures. Depending on the thermostat, you can have anywhere from two to eight different time periods. More complex systems allow you to program different amounts of periods on different days of the week. You can adjust temperatures for times you are away or asleep so that the furnace or air conditioner does not need to as much. Each of these time periods is programmed with a temperature, and the thermostat will cycle on its own. You can set it and forget it. Many of the thermostats also include a feature to reset the temperature at the next time period in its cycle. This feature is beneficial so that if you adjust the temperature but forget to set it back the thermostat will automatically do this for you.
Most people’s favorite benefit is that programmable thermostats can reduce your energy bills. This will save you money each year. They also increase energy efficiency in your home, optimize your HVAC system, and adjust in lower amounts of time than standard thermostats.
