Nobody wants to come home from a long day of work and wait for their house to cool down because their AC has been off all day. At the same time, no one likes seeing a high energy bill at the end of the month knowing no one was home even taking advantage of the AC. With all the benefits of a programmable thermostat, those are things of the past!
Perhaps the biggest benefit of having a programmable thermostat is the ability to save money on your cooling bill. You can set a schedule to have your thermostat raise or lower the temperature, so you don’t have to waste energy keeping your home cool when you’re not there. As a result, you can save on your energy bills each year.
Create a Consistent Temperature
With programmable thermostats, there’s no need to crank your AC up during a heatwave or turn the heat up during winter. Your thermostat can
follow the schedule you set and keep a consistent, comfortable temperature throughout your home.
Save Time When Programming
It can take a while to learn the in’s and out’s of setting a manual thermostat. Since you can set schedules for when you would like the temperature to change in your house, you don’t have to waste time fidgeting with your programmable thermostat — it’s already ready to go.
Increase Your Home’s Efficiency
Since you wouldn’t be messing around with your HVAC system as much, you won’t be causing as much wear and tear on it. This helps increase your system’s efficiency and also brings down your home’s energy usage.
Take Advantage of Technology
Newer programmable thermostats come with a variety of features, such as being wifi-enabled. This allows you to control your thermostat on the go and keep your energy costs down. For example, if you’re on vacation and notice an uncommonly warm or cold day at home, you can adjust your home’s temperature at the touch of a button on your phone.
Another reason to trust this to a smart thermostat is that the device will also make sure the temperature is to your liking when you return home. It can calculate how much time it’ll take to lower the temperature and make the necessary adjustments.
Otherwise, you might be tempted to crank that temperature way down to get comfortable as fast as possible, and that’ll eat up some of the savings you gained.
The ability to learn from your activities and then maintain a comfortable interior temperature makes smart thermostats an extremely wise investment – especially because the savings in energy costs probably will pay for a smart thermostat in only about a year. But even a smart thermostat might have problems if it’s not installed correctly, or if it’s not a good match for your home’s HVAC system.
