Did you know your thermostat is one of the most valuable items in your home? Most programmable thermostats will work with any kind of residential heating and cooling system. This is a convenient feature because their universal appeal makes them more adaptable to many kinds of heating and cooling systems.
Thermostats Programming Capabilities
There are a variety of thermostats available that allow you to program on a five day – two day cycle. This is a great option if members of your household are typically out of the home for a typical work week and then home on the weekends. There are also options for seven day programming, which is ideal for people whose schedules change from day to day.
Whichever system you choose to install or that you have already, you’ll want to know how to set your thermostat so it will perform the way you want and save you money in heating and cooling costs.
Settings For Your Thermostat
For the cooler months in fall and winter, industry experts recommend setting your thermostat near 70 degrees Fahrenheit when you’re home and closer to 62 degrees when you’re away from home and overnight.
With many home thermostats, you have the ability to set up a schedule for your heating and air conditioning needs all at once. You will just need to manually switch from heating to cooling on your thermostat and that will set the program in motion.
When programming your thermostat, you’ll choose the schedule button on your manual or touch screen device. You can choose the day you wish to program and then using the toggle arrow keys on the side of the device, you can find the temperature you want for when you wake up in the morning, leave for the day, return home in the evening, and go to bed at night.
Setting your programmable thermostat takes only a few minutes to do, but it’s a wise investment in the long-term. It will regulate the flow of air, either heat or air conditioning, to your home and conserve energy for those times when you’re not at home.
