If you are interested in keeping more of your money in your pocket, where it belongs, then investing in a programmable thermostat might be for you. Today’s thermostats are highly precise devices, allowing you control your home’s temperature every second of every day. You can maintain you optimal comfort levels while at home, and then turn on the energy-saving mode while away.
Easy-to-Use Smart Thermostats
Don’t let the amazing technology running these devices scare you off. Most programmable thermostats today come with pre-set options and intuitive, user-friendly displays. Depending on the model, you can set your temperature on a fixed basis, an hourly basis, or by weekday and weekend. Many are now Wi-Fi capable as well, allowing you to change settings when you are away from home.
Energy Efficiency = Big Savings
To optimize your savings, aim to reduce energy consumption for a minimum of eight to ten hours a day. Each degree you reduce over the course of eight hours equals a one percent cost savings on your heating and cooling bill. Given your HVAC system accounts for as much as half of your utility bill each month, this can add up to significant savings over time.
If eight hours seems like a lot, just think about how long you are asleep, or away from the house while at work. Programming your reduction during those off-hours makes it easy to achieve cost-savings in no time.
Too Smart For Me…
If you are in the market for a simple, uncomplicated, and reliable thermostat, don’t worry; we have those too. While they will accurately detect your home’s temperature, they do require manual adjustment for all changes. No Wi-Fi enablement means you won’t be able to adjust it while away from home.
If you are interested in seeing all the great thermostat options we carry, go ahead and contact us. We will match you to the thermostat best suited to your lifestyle, and help you strategize how you can start saving more every month.
