An efficient HVAC system will keep your family comfortable and help the environment. It will also lessen the likelihood of costly breakdowns and extend your system’s life by keeping it from working as hard. With a programmable thermostat, also called a setback thermostat, you can set different temperatures at different times of day to cut your energy use. By upgrading to a programmable thermostat, you can lower your utility bills, save time, and increase your Bath, Pennsylvania, home’s resale value.
The biggest benefit that programmable thermostats offer is savings. You can program the device to set the temperature according to your schedule so that energy is not wasted on heating or cooling the home when it’s not necessary. The system will heat or cool the house to a lesser degree when you’re asleep or away and automatically switch to a comfortable temperature when you’re home and awake.
Saves Time and Hassle
With a manual thermostat, it takes practice to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, and you’ll have to readjust it every time you come home, when you go to sleep, and when you wake up. A programmable thermostat lets you set a schedule and forget about it. With some units, you can set a different schedule for weekdays and weekends, and with others, you can set a different schedule for every day. Some devices can even learn your preferences by remembering at which temperatures you’re most comfortable.
Many programmable thermostats have a zoning feature with which you can set up separate climate zones in your home so that every member of your family is comfortable, without sacrificing efficiency. If one zone tends to be warmer or cooler than the others, you can set the unit to adjust the temperature in that zone to match that of the other zones. Zoning gives you complete control.
