Programmable thermostats have the potential to save you a significant amount of money while also reducing your energy usage around the home.
Rather than using the heating and cooling systems in a house efficiently, many people simply leave them running at the same temperature all day every day.
While this approach may be the most stress-free and straightforward, it is often a waste of energy and the bill payer’s money.
The reality is that many people simply don’t need to heat all areas of their home all day long. Many areas within the average house are unoccupied throughout the day and night.
Heating, or cooling, empty space is a poor use of energy and money.
This is where a programmable thermostat can offer you a series of benefits.
A programmable thermostat works by allowing you to choose and set the specific times of day that you want to heat or cool your house. The thermostat also allows you to set your desired temperature for that period.
Not only does this apply to a single 24 period but most programmable thermostats allow you to change your settings based on the specific day of the week.
This means that if your home is empty from 9-5 most weekdays, you can have your heating system turned off or set to a minimum temperature setting during these times. But if someone is at home for the majority of the weekend, then you can have your heating system more active during these times.
The most significant benefit of using a programmable thermostat is significantly reducing energy wastage within a building.
Rather than heating and cooling unoccupied space, take advantage of the capability of a programmable thermostat and turn your home into an energy-efficient, eco-friendly, cost-effective space.
