The Benefits of a Programmable Thermostat
Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to keep a home the right temperature? One day it might be below freezing, so you crank up your thermostat and let your furnace blast until it’s chased the chill out. Then the next day it’s downright cozy outside—you cut off the heat before heading out for the day, get home, and find your house freezing again!
Up and down, heating then cooling, adjusting your home temperature can feel like a huge pain. Even worse, leaving it a set temperature wastes power, making your home less energy efficient. However at Signature HVAC we just might have the solution you’ve been looking for: programmable thermostats.
What Is a Programmable Thermostat?
Though there are many accessories and additions to be had with one, programmable thermostats at their core are quite simple. The idea is having a thermostat that can be set up with predetermined routines, helping your HVAC system maintain more consistency and helping your home stay at an ideal temperature range by minimizing fluctuations.
Programming the thermostat is typically relatively easy; there are preset routines to choose from, as well as the ability to create custom routines that suit your personal preferences.
What Are the Benefits of Installing a Programmable Thermostat?
As with any investment, you of course want to know what you get out of a programmable thermostat installation. We’re happy to say there are plenty:
- Streamlined energy consumption. When set to a routine a thermostat can very accurately keep temperature, making tiny changes when needed. This reduces temperature swings and aids the HVAC system in conserving energy, which of course helps you save money.
- Energy saving options. You can save even more by programming the system to run your furnace at lower ranges while you’re away, maybe off to work, or sleeping. This can lead to a drastic drop in energy consumption.
- More even home heating and cooling comfort. Beyond saving you dollars there’s a lot to be said about sheer convenience and comfort. A system that can keep an even temp eliminates cold spots, and not having to fuss over your thermostat can save you plenty of time.
- Smart tech availability. How does programing or adjusting your thermostat from your phone sound? How about getting in-depth reports on HVAC energy use, alerts, and even a system that learns your preferences in order to provide better comfort? Modern programmable thermostats can have these features and more.
