Using a programmable thermostat is a useful tool for saving money on your monthly energy bills. Their convenience when you leave for the day or when you go on vacation prevents you from running your heating and cooling equipment when you don’t necessarily need to. Saving money on your energy bills leaves you with more money to spend on your getaway.
Programmable thermostats allow you to set different temperatures for different days and times. This allows you to maintain a healthy and comfortable level of indoor air even when you’re away. If you leave your home for a number of days for vacation, you can set the thermostat to save you from wasting power when nobody will be around. An hour or two before you return to your Hampton Roads area home, the temperature can be set to switch over to a more comfortable level, and when you arrive home the indoor air quality will be pleasant. You won’t have to rush in the door to adjust the temperature and wait for the HVAC system to catch up.
A number of models are available for purchase, and you should contact a qualified professional to help you determine what unit will work best for your lifestyle. Upgrading to an Energy Star certified model can save you money right away, as most of them come pre-programmed with energy savings data. Touch-screen models are also available for personal convenience.
