Benefits of Installing a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat is ideal for people who are out of their home for extended periods of time. While your home is unoccupied, the thermostat will automatically set itself for a more efficient temperature during those times, allowing you to save money. Programmable thermostats are customizable and allow you to set different temperatures for:
- Different times of day
- Different days of the week
- Vacations and time off
- Different temperatures that your family prefers
You can set various presets for different times of day. For instance, during those cold winter months you can set the temperature much lower when your whole family is out for the day, minimizing your energy consumption for those hours and giving your furnace a break. But when you return home, your house will already be back up to a comfortable temperature! Setting presets allows everyone to come home and be comfortable.
Some of the advantages of a programmable thermostat installation include:
- Saving you money – For each degree that you adjust the setting over an eight-hour period, you can expect to cut 1 percent off your utility bill. Using a programmable thermostat to change your home’s temperature while you’re sleeping or out for the day can save you as much as 10 percent a year!
- Optimizing your home’s comfort – You can program your thermostat to reach your ideal temperature in any season. Winter mornings can be met with warm air, and those hot summer Texas nights can be set to keep you cool and comfortable.
Maximize the Benefits of Your Dallas Home’s Thermostat
When using a programmable thermostat, there are a few things you should keep in mind if you want to maximize the cost-reducing benefits.
Don’t Adjust the Thermostat Too Often
Constantly adjusting your thermostat’s setting will minimize the impact a programmable thermostat has on your heating bill! Total Air & Heat recommends setting up a maximum of 4 settings: one for the early morning when you’re getting ready for the day ahead, another for when you and your family are at work/school, one for when everyone has returned home, and lastly, another for when everyone is getting ready for bed.
Placement Is Important
Your programmable thermostat needs to be installed on an interior wall that is away from windows, direct sunlight, doors, vents, and anything that could cause the thermostat to register an incorrect temperature.
