Programmable thermostats are gaining in popularity, mostly due to energy costs.
They enable you to adjust the times you turn on the heating or air-conditioning according to a pre-set schedule. As a result, you don't operate the equipment as much when you are asleep or when the house is not occupied.
They are very advantageous because they enable you to:
- Save money on your heating and cooling bills
- Save energy resources
Setting Your Thermostat Back to Save Money & Energy
You can easily save energy in the winter by setting the thermostat higher while you're awake and setting it lower while you're asleep or away from home. By turning your thermostat back for about 8 hours a day, you have the potential to save about 5%–15% a year on your heating bill.
In the summer, you can follow the same strategy with central air conditioning - keep your house warmer than normal when you are away, and lowering the thermostat only when you are at home and need cooling. Programmable thermostats will avoid any discomfort by returning temperatures to normal when you wake up in the morning or return home.
