If you don’t have a programmable thermostat and haven't put much thought into what the benefits might be, here is your sign. Programmable thermostats entail a list of great benefits that you and your household can enjoy.
The biggest benefit that comes with having a programmable thermostat is that it can save you quite a bit of money over time. You will be amazed at how much you are spending right now compared to when you have a new thermostat in place. Programmable thermostats give you the flexibility and efficiency that your system needs in order to save cash on energy bills.
Programmable thermostats are super convenient. If you like to keep your home cold during the day while no one is home, but you hate coming home to a cold house, replacing your thermostat can make this inconvenience go away. No more waiting for your home to heat up or cool down. You can set up a schedule so your home is the right temperature at all times of the day. This scheduling feature can also save you money if you utilize tactics such as scheduling to lower the A/C when you are sleeping, not home, or on vacation.
Installing a programmable thermostat will increase the efficiency of your systems throughout all seasons. This will make your systems last longer and run better.
If you have an older system, but you aren't ready to replace it, replacing your thermostat can be a temporary fix. A programmable thermostat can optimize your home’s HVAC system, helping it operate more efficiently while you are holding out on a larger purchase until the time is right. When you do decide that it’s time to upgrade, you will already have a programmable thermostat in place which will start you off on the right foot to taking care of your new system to the best of your ability.
Some models will provide system alerts. If you have a hard time keeping track of when your thermostat needs a filter change or an annual maintenance check, these reminders might make or break the lifespan and condition that your thermostat is in.
