A programmable thermostat makes managing your home comfort effortless, plus it can help you save some money. This thermostat can be programmed around your schedule, so you can avoid paying to heat your home when you’re not around. With the ever-changing weather in Safford, a programmable thermostat can ensures your home’s temperature is exactly where you want it, when you want it there.
The best way to maximize the benefits of your programmable thermostat is to take some time to evaluate your family’s schedule. By doing this, you can decide the most efficient way to program your thermostat so you don’t waste energy when your home is empty, but you also won’t have anyone coming home to a house that’s too hot or too cold.
You could try to remember to adjust your thermostat before and after work, but why make more work for yourself when the programmable thermostat was designed to simplify your life and make your home more comfortable? You just need to set it and forget it… and saving on energy makes it even better.
You can help your system operate more efficiently by programming your thermostat for large periods of time and limit your temperature changes to 10 degrees or less. This will save you money and help ensure you are comfortable in your home. Your system will use less energy when you keep your home at a reasonably constant temperature than it does to turn it on when you get home and try to heat a cold house.
A programmable thermostat operates with the same simple functions as a traditional thermostat, but also comes equipped with a variety of preprogrammed settings to trim down your energy consumption and, therefore, potentially lower your energy bills.
- Preprogrammed settings often include special options for when you are away. Using these settings will automatically lower your temperature setting whether you’re away from Safford on vacation or only away from home for the day.
- Some programmable thermostats allow you to lock the thermostat to keep kids from accidentally (or purposely) moving the temperature and potentially raising your bill.
- You should also know that bumping up the heat much warmer than you’d normally set it will not help your house warm up rapidly. Many people assume that cranking the heat up in a cold house will warm it up faster, but it doesn’t. And often they forget to turn it back down, making the house uncomfortably warm and wasting energy.
When you want to ensure your home is always comfortable and are looking to save a little money, a programmable thermostat is a great option.
