If you’re looking for ways to save money in your home or business, you should strongly consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat. Significant electric savings can come from using the schedule setting on your programmable thermostat, as doing this ensures that you save money when you’re away. Since your air conditioning isn’t used when you don’t need it, you can expect energy savings and prolonged equipment life.
Programmable thermostats automatically adjust your central air conditioning or heating system to different temperatures depending upon the time of day. This saves energy without the need to manually adjust a thermostat several times daily. Programmable thermostats also prevent you from forgetting to change the temperature before going to sleep or leaving the home.
Installing a properly-configured programmable thermostat will decrease the average homeowner’s heating and cooling expenses by $180 dollars per year, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. At this rate, your household could save many times the cost of a new thermostat over several years.
