Are you still using a manual thermostat that requires you to rotate a dial? If so, you could be losing out on both comfort and money. Here are three reasons why it makes real dollars and sense to make the switch to a programmable thermostat in 2021.
Reason #1 – You’ll Save Energy and Money
The single most significant benefit of installing a programmable thermostat in your home is the savings that it offers. Your energy bills will fluctuate from season to season while continuing to rise with each passing year. With a programmable thermostat, you can identify the optimal temperature for comfort and establish a temperature schedule that follows your daily routine. With less energy being used while you’re not at home or asleep, you’ll start seeing both your energy usage and your utility bills drop.
Reason #2 – Consistency
Imagine never having to crank up the air conditioning on a hot day or blast the heat on a cold winter’s morning. With a programmable thermostat, you can maintain a steady flow automatically that works with your schedule. As well, you can set up multiple “climates” in your home with the zoning feature. Each zone is programmable to further improve energy efficiency.
Reason #3 – More Control
Programmable thermostats enable you to set or reset the temperature any time of the day, from anywhere. This means that you can change the temperature while you’re at work or on vacation from any mobile device. No more running home at lunch to turn down the air conditioning or having to call a neighbor to check to see if you left on the heater. Now, that’s control!
