How Can a Programmable Thermostat Save You Money?
Do you find yourself messing with your home's thermostat daily? If so, you're unknowingly eating into your monthly household budget. Regardless if you're bundling up during those cold winter months or sweating through the dog days of summer, a consistent thermostat can provide peace of mind both physically and financially.
With a programmable thermostat, you know what to expect. Not just when you wake up in the morning or get home from work --- but when that bill comes in the mail or your inbox. Here are three ways they help put some money back in your pocket:
- They Let You Set a Schedule.
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night in sweats? Or come home only to get hit in the face with stifling heat or blistering cold? With a programmable thermostat, neither one has to be a reality.
A non programmable thermostat has to be set and readjusted. You have to tweak endlessly until you find the right temperature at the right time. And if someone in the house makes an impromptu adjustment without you knowing, you'll find out when the bill comes.
A programmable system jumps into action when you schedule it, so no surprises spring up. Plus, if you have a thermostat with remote sensor or a Bluetooth thermostat, you can adjust the settings from anywhere in case you'll be away from home for longer than expected. It's a win-win for your household budget.
- They Help the HVAC System.
The household's heating system can be a tricky animal. It can also be an expensive one to maintain or, when the time comes, to replace. Programmable thermostats are HVAC-friendly due to their consistency.
Non-programmable setups can put unplanned or undue stress on HVAC systems. Instead of sending the HVAC into overdrive to find the best temperature for the heater in winter, your system can relax and run on routine.
Programmable thermostats can help your HVAC system when it requires a replacement and help a new unit to start fresh and efficiently when installed. All told programmable systems can help you stave off having to immediately pour money into an all-new HVAC system, and prolong the life of your new one, also a long-term investment).
- They Get You in The Zone.
Not every pocket of your house is going to feel the same. If you live in a multiple-story house, your bottom floor is probably heating up quicker than your top floor. The back might run cooler than the front (and vice versa), all because traditional thermostats aren't always able to spread the heat or cool evenly.
How can programmable thermostats help? By being set up in every area of the house. With non-programmable thermostats, you're asking for one unit to serve an entire home. But programmable ones? They can act independently to help control the temperature of your entire home.
And if thermostats are smart home-enabled or linked to an app, one touch of the button can heat or cool the house up. Again, it's a cost-saving measure that enables homeowners and renters not to have to expect the unexpected.
An energy-efficient house is a net positive for the people living and paying for said home. Programmable thermostats offer consistency and are an investment for the health of the people in your house, your wallet, and the effectiveness of your heating and cooling unit.
