You may be trying to find as many ways as possible to save some money on your utility bills. As you are researching this topic you have probably come across the idea of installing a programmable thermostat in your home. A programmable thermostat is a great idea!
What is a Programmable Thermostat?
Let’s start with talking about what exactly a programmable thermostat is. A programmable thermostat is designed to automatically adjust the temperature in your home based on a schedule that you set for the needs of your home. This will allow you to have the temperature in your home change to fit your routines without having to be home to adjust your thermostat.
Benefits of Programmable Thermostat
Now that we understand what a programmable thermostat is we can start talking about what the benefits of them are. The largest benefit for most people is the savings. Since you will be able to program your thermostat to be warmer during the time when no one is home and cooler only when your family is home you will save money. It is estimated that you can save 2% of your energy bill for every degree that the thermostat is set back.
Programmable Thermostats Give Consistent Temperature
Another benefit of having a programmable thermostat installed is that you will be able to keep your home at a consistent temperature. Your programmable thermostat will help keep your air conditioner running at a constant level to keep your home cool. This will help your family and friends be comfortable whenever they are in your home.
Energy Efficient Programmable Thermostats
If you have an older air conditioning unit a programmable thermostat can help it run more efficiently. Sometimes installing a programmable thermostat can help your older unit from needing to be replaced. It will not solve the problem long term but it will allow you to wait another season or two sometimes before needing to replace the entire unit. It does not always work but is definitely worth a shot!
