Utility Cost Savings 

The most significant benefit of integrating a programmable thermostat is the monthly savings on your energy bills. These savings can be up to 20%. The savings from a programmable thermostat are the result of it using less energy when no one is home during the day and when your household is asleep. Less energy usage equals a lower cost! Smart thermostats are highly dependable, and therefore you save money by spending less on repairs.  

More Consistent Temperature

Programmable thermostats will maintain a consistent temperature, according to your desired setting. You will no longer have to manually set temperatures throughout the day and night as temperatures fluctuate. As a result, your indoor environment is more comfortable and lets you spend time doing what matters to you more without having to check the temperature continually.  

Easy to Use

Smart thermostats are simple to use and easy to read because the digital display is user-friendly. The thermostats run on batteries, which should be changed at least once a year. Some models allow you to control the settings from a computer, smartphone, or tablet because it all connects to the internet.

Energy-Efficient Home

In recent years, society has become more conscious about the harmful effects we have on the environment as well as our responsibility to do something about it. In turn, energy-efficiency has become a top priority for homeowners. Energy-efficient appliances and technology are better because they use their resources effectively and help to extend the life of the device. Programmable thermostats help the home be more energy-efficient by keeping energy usage as low as preferred and lowering it when it is not needed. 

Before Replacing Your HVAC System, Use a Programmable Thermostat

Replacing an  HVAC system less than ten years old that does not have a programmable thermostat is a significant purchase. If you are not in the position to make such a purchase, installing a programmable thermostat can help extend the life of your unit until you are in a financial place to replace the whole unit. The smart thermostat helps an older system by lowering the workload of the unit. Additionally, the thermostat’s programmed settings will then extend the life of your new HVAC unit as well.
