A programmable thermostat makes taking control of your home comfort easy, plus it can help you save some money. You can program it around your routine, so won’t have to pay to heat your home when you’re away. With the unpredictable weather in Muldrow, a programmable thermostat can keep your home’s temperature exactly where you want it, when you want it there.
The best way to maximize the benefits of your programmable thermostat is to take some time to analyze your family’s daily activities. After doing this, you can plan the best way to program your thermostat so you don’t waste energy when your home is empty, but you also won’t have anyone coming home to a house that’s uncomfortably hot or cold.
Some people just take the time to adjust their thermostat before and after work, but why needlessly do all this work when the programmable thermostat was created to make your life and your home more comfortable? You just need to set it and forget it… and saving on energy makes it even better.
For the most efficient system operation, program your thermostat for large periods of time and limit your temperature changes to 10 degrees or less. This practice will save you money and help ensure you are comfortable in your home. Many people don’t realize that it takes your system less energy to keep your home at a fairly constant temperature than it does to turn it on when you get home and try to heat a cold house.
A programmable thermostat operates with the same simple functions as a traditional thermostat, but also features a variety of preprogrammed settings to lower your energy consumption and, therefore, potentially cut your energy bills.
- Preprogrammed settings often include designated options for when you are not home. Using these settings automatically lowers your temperature setting whether you’re away from Muldrow on vacation or only away from home for the day.
- Some programmable thermostats have a feature to lock the thermostat to inhibit kids from accidentally (or purposely) adjusting the temperature and potentially raising your bill.
- You should also know that setting the heat much warmer than you’d normally set it will not help your house warm up faster. Many people assume that cranking the heat up in a cold house will warm it up faster, but it doesn’t. And often they forget to turn it back down, making the house uncomfortably warm and wasting energy.
When you want to ensure your home is always comfortable and would be happy to save a little money, a programmable thermostat is a great option.
