Benefits of a programmable thermostat

Are you thinking about installing a programmable thermostat? Trust us—it’s a good decision! A programmable thermostat is accompanied by a myriad of benefits, including:

  • The ability to sync to your schedule. For example, if your family’s schedule leaves your home empty for long periods of time (when everyone is away at work or school) the thermostat can be programmed to lower the temperature when no one is home and then raise the temperature when everyone returns.
  • Adjustable temperatures. If you want the thermostat to lower temperatures at night when your family is asleep in bed and raise them when everyone wakes up, you can! Once programmed, your thermostat adjusts the temperature settings automatically without you ever having to worry about it.
  • Adjustable settings. Even after it has been programmed, your programmable thermostat has easily adjustable settings. This allows you to use your programmable thermostat strategically, which may result in you saving a great deal of money on your monthly energy costs.
  • Energy efficiency. After installing programmable thermostats, many residents of the MD and DC area saw the cost of the product more than made up in energy savings!

Proper use of your thermostat

To ensure that your programmable thermostat is as effective as it can be, try the following maintenance tips.

  • Keep your thermostat away from other heating or cooling elements to provide the most accurate reading of your home’s temperature. That way, you’ll be aware of the productivity of your thermostat.
  • If you are going to be away from your home for a few days, set your thermostat to the lowest possible setting in the winter and the highest possible setting in the summer. This practice will minimize wasted energy (and save you money).
  • Another money saving tip: during the cold months, lower your thermostat setting by a few degrees at night or during a party when people’s body heat will warm your house.
  • Avoid constantly adjusting your thermostat. Changing your thermostat once or twice a day is fine, but changing it too often will cause your HVAC system to turn off and on more frequently than needed. This will force your heating and cooling system to work harder—therefore be less efficient.
