• Consistent Heating/Cooling
It is easier to keep your home at a consistent and comfortable temperature with a programmable thermostat. They are generally more sensitive to room temperature resulting in more accurate readings. This means less fluctuation in room temperature during the day and night.
• Energy Efficient
Their more accurate readings translate to less wasted fuel and energy costs. They can be programmed to a variety of schedules that allow you to heat or cool the home only when necessary.
A programmable thermostat puts you in control of your home’s environment, allowing you to program varying temperatures throughout the day and night. Most are designed to allow you to program temperature lows and highs in specified intervals. You can easily lower the temperature at night and program the thermostat to warm the house before you rise in the morning.
• Cost Effective
When a programmable thermostat is used correctly, it is possible to see savings of up to $150 a year on heating and cooling costs.
• Ease of Use
Programmable thermostats will retain settings in memory. This means you set it once a week, once a month, or once a season, and forget about it. You can easily reconfigure the settings if your schedule or comfort levels change. All will offer manual override of the programmed settings if you temporarily need more or less heating or cooling.
