3 Advantages of a Programmable Thermostat

Whether it’s the freezing cold winter temps, or the dead of summer heat, we all want to live in a comfortable environment without spending a fortune on our energy bills. If you are looking for a way to help you maintain that level of comfort with your home temperature, have you considered a programmable thermostat? A programmable thermostat, sometimes called a setback or clock thermostat, offers a wide range of advantages over other, more traditional thermostats.

Here are 3 reasons a programmable thermostate might be the best choice for you and your home.

1. It Saves Money

Studies show that a programmable thermostat can save a home money on their energy bill each month. By keeping the temperature at a consistent level that you control through scheduling, you can eliminate the need to heat your home when you are gone, or keep the home as cool during the day when nobody is at home. Not having to remember to adjust the temperature in your home is an effective way to control the amount you are spending and keep the costs more consistent. This is, for the cost conscious consumer, possibly the biggest advantage of this type of thermostat, but it’s not the only one.

2. It Offers Complete Control Over The Temperature of Your House

In the past, consumers have been faced with a difficult choice. Either leave their heat on all day while they’re gone and risk higher heating bills, or turn it off and spend time in a cold house after a long day of work. A programmable thermostat solves this by giving you the ability to let your thermostat turn on at the perfect time for you. Being able to have the house at a comfortable temperature as soon as you arrive home can keep you comfortable and eliminate at least one little piece of stress from your day! When you sleep, being able to wake up to a warm house, or falling asleep in a nice cool one without needing to change or worry about your thermostat is a modern convenience that only a programmable thermostat can provide.

3. Time Saving

You may have figured this out already, but since you don’t have to worry about the temperature in your home after programming the thermostat, you’ll save time. We spend more time than we think tinkering with our thermostats, and by cutting out this chore from our lives we’ll have more time to do the things we enjoy.

As you can see, a programmable thermostat can potentially save you time and money, as well as offer you a level of control traditional thermostats may not. It’s not something you might immediately consider when you start considering home improvement ideas for your home, but it can help make your home a more relaxing and comforting space.
