The Benefits of a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats have rapidly become popular with homeowners due to their convenience, cost, and energy-saving benefits.

 

So, what is a programmable thermostat?

Programmable thermostats simply allow people to pre-set the temperature of their homes or businesses.  They have been found to be greatly convenient and more accurate than traditional thermostats.  They are eco-friendly devices and contain no mercury.  Most notably, programmable thermostats save you money.  They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install.  Can you believe that According to DTE Energy, for every degree the thermostat is set below 72 degrees, a person will save approximately 3 percent on his energy bill?  By programming the thermostat lower while away from home, it is possible that you will be able to save significant cash without even realizing it.

Is a programmable thermostat right for you?

Since the temperature can be adjusted to your schedule, you can set the temperature to be at different levels while you are home, away, awake and asleep!  Most options allow users to choose different settings for each day of the week, too.  So, if you are home more often on the weekends in the winter than you are at other times during the week, go ahead and bump the temperature up a bit!  It provides a cost-effective way to stay comfortable.

 

This innovative piece of equipment even could come with features that would maximize its ease of use.  Additional features include digital readouts, backlight displays, touch pads, voice activation and programming, and recovery features.  What are you waiting for?  It’s time to go programmable.
