The Benefits Associated With Programmable Thermostats
Upgrading your HVAC unit has many benefits associated with it. But if you have not yet upgraded to a programmable thermostat, you may not get all of the benefits out of your system that you should. Here are some of the benefits associated with programmable thermostats and the reasons why you should consider upgrading your system to one of these.
They Help You to Save Money
A major benefit associated with programmable thermostats is that they can help you to save money on your heating and cooling expenses. They allow you to take advantage of setting the temperature of your home based around your schedule and natural temperature fluctuations. If you know you will be out of your home daily around noon, you can have the temperature set a little warmer in summer and cooler in winter since you won't be in there. But if you know you will be home in the evenings, you can have the thermostat set so your home is cooled or heated exactly as you desire when you come home. You aren't wasting money keeping your home the perfect temperature all day when you are not around.
They Keep Your Home a Consistent Temperature
Another benefit associated with a programmable thermostat is that they keep your home a consistent temperature. You can always save money by shutting off your heating or cooling unit during the day when you are not home. But once you get home, your unit has to work a lot to heat or cool your home. And you may be uncomfortable for an hour or two until the home heats or cools. A programmable thermostat keeps your home a consistent temperature, ensuring you spend less time adjusting the temperature throughout the day, week or month.
They Increase the Efficiency of Your HVAC Unit
As was mentioned above, if your unit is not programmable, you may shut the entire unit off when you are gone for the day or on vacation. But when you come, you may turn the unit on full blast to heat or cool your home. This causes a lot of wear and tear on your unit. Having your home set at a consistent and stable temperature helps to increase the efficiency of your HVAC unit and decrease wear and tear.
You Can Control Multiple Zones of Your Home
The last benefit associated with a programmable thermostat is that you can control multiple zones of your home. Newer units allow you to heat and cool only specified parts of the home. You can heat or cool your living room as needed when you are in that area, or set the thermostat to heat or cool bedrooms just before bed and during the night.
