A programmable thermostat is a must-have device for the savvy and modern homeowner. Few other accessories give you the control and convenience you need — and want — when it comes to making your home as comfortable as possible. Below are just a few ways that installing a programmable thermostat can save you money without compromising the comfort of you and your family.
With the typical programmable thermostat, you can manually set the temperature for the whole house. Most sophisticated models have additional features that allow you to perform more precise operations. For example, you might be able to preset the temperature for your home for different times of the day. During the cooler mornings when you are leaving your house for the day, you could have your air conditioning set slightly higher than normal — or even turned off all the way. As the day warms up, so does the interior of your home. Setting your programmable thermostat so that it lowers the temperature of your home only at certain times of the day in order to keep your pets from getting overheated means that your air conditioner isn’t running when it isn’t necessary.
Though it is sophisticated, a programmable thermostat is also designed to be user-friendly. Easy to understand and operate, some models feature a breakdown of the days of the week where you can stipulate a particular temperature. Other models give you the ability to preset temperatures for different parts of the day. Still others can provide a range of different information about the conditions in your home — as well as outdoors — such as the humidity, barometric pressure and more. Technologically-advanced thermostats can also alert homeowners when their HVAC systems need to be serviced.
These days, you can complete numerous home-related tasks online including purchasing and paying for new furniture, scheduling lawn care and even finding that perfect home. It just makes sense that this ability makes the leap to your thermostat as well. Many of today’s models of programmable thermostats give you the ability to control them via the internet, regardless of where you might be located. Simply by logging onto your account from any device that is connected to the internet, you can tweak your settings to accommodate unexpected weather changes, impromptu visitors and anything else that might come up.
