What are the benefits to a programmable thermostat?
Programmable thermostats are the leading market technology in AC from the last couple years. They are easy to use and program, and allow you to keep your home cool from anywhere. That being said, how do you know if it’s time to replace your own thermostat for a new one? Below are several pros to replacing your outdated thermostat.
What are the average savings after installing a programmable thermostat?
According to the Department of Energy, you can save as much as 10% a year on heating and cooling by simply turning your thermostat back 7°-10°F for 8 hours a day from its normal setting. The percentage of savings from setbacks is greater for buildings in milder climates than for those in more severe climates. Programmable thermostats will avoid any discomfort by returning temperatures to normal before you wake or return home.
How does a programmable thermostat save you money in energy bills?
Energy Star estimates that homeowners properly using programmable thermostats can save about $180 a year. Since nearly half of your energy bills are made up of heating and cooling costs, having a programmable thermostat in your home can make a difference.
