A programmable thermostat lets you program how and when the thermostat controls the temperature of your home based on your schedule. If you need your thermostat to start blasting heat an hour before you get home, your thermostat can do that automatically. Instead of setting a consistent temperature before you leave, thereby wasting energy, program your thermostat to adjust by itself while you're gone.Here are some other benefits of your programmable thermostat:
An air conditioner can use 1.5 kilowatts per hour. Raising the temperature in an air conditioned home by 1 degree can save 1 percent on your energy bill. Cutting down 10 degrees eight hours a day can save a lot more than one percent.
Some programmable thermostats can connect to smartphones, computers, tablets, and more. If you are working in the basement and need it to be cooler, you can turn down your thermostat by hopping onto your phone and programming it that way.
Because of their connectivity to smart devices, you can regulate your home's temperature from anywhere in the world. Your home's thermostat can stay off while you're away and won't turn back until you want it to.
Certain models of thermostats allow for custom heating and cooling in each room. You can keep one room hot while another remains ice cold through the same HVAC system.
Normal thermostats use mercury, which is harmful to produce and use. Programmable thermostats do not.
The government's Energy Star program recognizes three different models of programmable thermostats.
If you work 9 to 5 Monday through Friday, you spend most of your time out of your house. Don't spend money on energy that you don't use. Instead, program your thermostat to turn off when you are not home and pocket the savings.
