Programmable thermostats are the latest trend–but are they right for your home? Let’s take a look at some of their biggest benefits to help you decide.
Programmable thermostats are optimized to do the best job for your home with as little input as possible. How many times do you currently adjust the thermostat during the day? Maybe 3? 4? Programmable thermostats can be configured to automatically adjust four times a day, with different schedules configured for each day of the week. A couple tweaks during the setup process and you’ll be saving fifteen minutes every day easily.
Aside from the obvious comfort of always having your home the correct temperature, programmable thermostats can also help you stay healthy by integrating with your air purifier and ventilator setups. A “smart” thermostat can help let you know when it’s time to change the filter ensuring that you never go too long with pollution or dust starting to creep into your home.
Money, Money, Money
Every minute that the thermostat is too high in the winter or too low in the summer costs you money. A standard thermostat will keep on blasting hot air into the room even when it’s already sweltering. However, a sufficiently advanced programmable thermostat can go so far as to sense the outside temperature, compare it with what’s going on inside your home, and make a correction. Keeping the temperature at a level that’s comfortable, not too warm, and not too cold, will take bring energy bills down.
The Bottom Line
Programmable thermostats are more affordable than ever, and they integrate with more and more home systems. With prices coming down on even the newest models, there’s no better time than today to consider investing in a programmable thermostat for your home. Start saving time and money today and be on your way to a healthier life.
