Why Purchase A Programmable Thermostat

March 10th, 2012

There are several ways to conserve electricity related to heating and cooling in your home that can help decrease your electricity bills. Using a programmable thermostat is one of the best ways to save electricity and energy overall. Programmable thermostats also help your heating and cooling equipment maintain the optimal temperature setting. The use of microprocessors gives you the option to program your home temperatures depending on your lifestyle, so you can keep your home comfortable while there, and automatically set it back to save energy when you’re away or even sleeping.

A programmable thermostat saves energy because of its setback feature. The setback feature offers a large degree of flexibility in automatically changing the temperature settings in your home based on household patterns. All you need to do is program into its memory the temperatures you wish, and at what time of the day to stay comfortable and save energy all season. Once you customize your programmable thermostat to fit your lifestyle and schedule, all you have to do is relax and let it do all the work.

When used correctly, programmable thermostats will keep you and your family comfortable, help you reduce energy costs, and help save money throughout the year. Keep in mind to only purchase a programmable thermostat that has an ENERGY STAR rating.

Some Simple Steps to Energy Savings with Programmable Thermostats include:

  • Have your thermostat properly installed – Know about the proper and safe installation of your programmable thermostat, as well as when you should call a certified HVAC contractor to handle the installation for you.
  • Properly set and use your thermostat – Follow the guidelines as stated in the owner’s manual to achieve savings.
  • Use the programmable thermostat calculator to see what you can save with set-back temperatures that work for your family.
