Benefits of a Programmable Thermostat

  • They use less energy: Programmable thermostats offer the ability to preset the temperature during the day or night, which means you use less energy when you are away from home.
  • They provide greater temperature control: You can set the heat at a lower temperature during the day while at work, but program the thermostat to warm the space just prior to your return. Your home is comfortable upon your arrival, but the heat or air conditioning does not run unnecessarily all day.
  • They offer increased comfort: You can choose in advance when your heat or air conditioning will work the most. For instance, if mornings tend to be cold in your home, program your thermostat to click on shortly before you wake. The house stays cooler overnight when you are sleeping, but is comfortable when you crawl out from under your blankets.

A programmable thermostat gives you precise control over your heating and cooling, helping to reduce wasted energy. Some estimates show the best programmable thermostat can help you save as much as $1000 annually.

In addition to the energy saving benefits, programmable thermostats are easy to use. Even the most basic programmable option can be installed in an hour and comes with preset temperature settings to guide your programming.

The most advanced models offer ease of control, sophisticated displays, and programming via the Internet. Some of these models offer a graphic user interface that displays outdoor conditions and humidity, and an onscreen wizard to help you determine your usage based on simple questions. Your answers enable the programmable thermostat to self-set accordingly. Some even come with portable controllers that enable you to adjust settings from any room in the house.
