At Day & Nite Plumbing and Heating, we know that our customers want to keep their homes and offices at a comfortable temperature, no matter what the weather looks like outside. Fortunately, there's one tool that can help you with that all year round. A programmable thermostat is the best option for controlling your HVAC system. Instead of manually having to mess with the temperature all the time, you simply set the temperature you want your home to stay at while you're in it. It's easy and comes with some useful perks. Here's a look at the benefits it can bring to your home.
This is the big one. You're never using more energy than you need with a programmable thermostat. You can set the temperature for certain times of day, so you don't have to worry about your HVAC system running while you're not home. You can choose different temperatures for the hours that you're frequently at home and for the times that you're out. This means that your home will be comfortable when you need it to be, and won't be wasting energy when you're not around. It's easy to forget to set the thermostat as you run out the door for the day, but a programmable thermostat ensures that you don't run into that issue again.
Naturally, with reduced energy usage comes reduced costs. If your electricity bill is too high for your liking, a programmable thermostat might be able to help. Because you're not wasting energy cooling an empty house, you're saving money. With just a little bit of effort, you'll notice that more money is staying in your wallet.
Less Work for Your HVAC System
A programmable thermostat can even extend the life of your HVAC system. Like with most equipment, your air conditioning unit and furnace are all subject to wear and tear. If these systems are working harder than they need to be, that could just speed up their path to retirement. If you don't want to replace your HVAC equipment before it's necessary, you'll want a programmable thermostat that has your system working hard only when you need it.
Keeps Your Home Comfortable
One of the best things about a programmable thermostat is how you can pre-program it for different times of day. We already mentioned how this can help you save electricity by ensuring that your HVAC system isn't working hard while you're not home, but it also has some other applications. Some people prefer different temperatures when they're awake or asleep, for example. It's easy enough to have your thermostat set to different settings for sleeping and waking hours. Your home will be comfortable at all times, no matter what you're up to.
Easy to Control
Another thing to remember about a programmable thermostat is that they're easy to control. You'll get all of these benefits with very little hassle, even if you're not the most tech-savvy person around. Many of these thermostats work with Wi-Fi and smartphone apps. It couldn't be easier to set a comfortable temperature for your home and take full advantage of everything this advanced equipment has to offer.
