As technology rapidly improves and changes around us, we see more and more people stepping into the 21st century with their home technology. One of the simplest and most efficient tech upgrades for your home is a programmable thermostat. Still, some ask, why should I get a programmable thermostat? We’ve got the answer!
- They Can Save You Money
Really, what more do you need to hear? Setting your programmable thermostat properly means you won’t waste energy heating or cooling your house when you’re not home, and it can help moderate the temperature while you’re sleeping. According to the EPA, using a programmable thermostat correctly can save you 10-30% on your electric bill annually.
- They Save You Time
Instead of remembering to fiddle around with your temperature settings each time you leave for work and come home, a programmable thermostat takes all the hassle away by doing it for you. Plus, there’s less guesswork in a set-it-and-forget-it system. Make it easy on yourself!
- They’re Easier And More Convenient To Use
With all of the amazing technology available to us today, we look for ease of use and convenience. Instead of fiddling around with dials and imprecise scales, using a newer, programmable thermostat is simple: set it to the exact temperature you want on a digital screen that’s familiar and concise.
- They Offer Peace Of Mind
Because programmable thermostats only need to be set up once, you can always rest assured whether you’re at work or on vacation that you’re set for efficiency. Many programmable thermostats are also Wi-Fi-enabled, which means you can change your settings from the couch or your beachfront cabana.
- Reduced Strain On Your Systems
Looking to save even more money? Automating your temperature control with a programmable thermostat means you’re heating and cooling your home more efficiently, which means there will be less strain on your systems. Less strain means less maintenance and a healthier, longer-lasting HVAC system. It’s a win-win-win.
