The introduction of programmable thermostats may be one of the biggest changes in home comfort technology over the last 15 years. Programmable thermostats are also a great money saver. Installing one of these user-friendly controls is a simple way to improve your comfort and cut energy consumption by as much as 10%!
Because these devices let you set many different temperatures for your home throughout the week, you can tailor your comfort for various times of the day and days of the week. For example, you can program your thermostat to lower temperatures automatically at night when everyone is sleeping or during the day when everyone is away. Lowering your setting from 72°F to 65°F for eight hours a day can cut heating bills by as much as 10%. Plus, the precise temperature control of a programmable thermostat saves wear and tear on your heating equipment because you’ll get heat only when you need it.
