Reasons to Use a Programmable Thermostat

If you’re looking to optimize your home’s energy usage, upgrading your regular thermostat to a programmable model is a good place to start. Aside from the convenience of being able to control your home’s temperature in a more tangible way, there are some other good reasons for using a programmable thermostat.

Adjusts the temperature automatically

You can set your programmable thermostat according to your personal preferences. If no one is home during the day, you’re wasting a lot of energy heating or cooling your home. You can program your system to come on just before you arrive home.

More efficient for zoned systems

For homes with separate temperature controls for different zones, a programmable thermostat is much more effective than those requiring constant manual adjusting.

Decreased energy bills

Optimizing your energy usage by automating your home’s heating and cooling can result a reduction in your overall utility costs.

Easy to read information and reminders

Many programmable thermostats are a convenient touch screen and also provide readily available information on your HVAC system. They can also be set up to give reminders to change your air filter and to signal you when your system needs maintenance.

Remote access capability

In addition to all of the above features, many programmable thermostats can be connected to your smartphone, allowing you to adjust the temperature wherever you are.
