3 Benefits of a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat can help increase the value of your Round Rock, Texas, home and extend your HVAC system’s life. You can set it to turn down your heater and air conditioner automatically when you normally go to sleep and leave for work. Then, it will bring your house back to a more comfortable temperature before you wake up or come home. With a programmable thermostat, you can improve comfort for yourself and your family members, lower your utility bills, and make using your thermostat more convenient.
You can connect many types of programmable thermostats to indoor air quality and humidity monitors. That way, you can control the moisture levels and the air quality more precisely and get help from a professional if you notice unusual readings. Many programmable thermostats are also compatible with variable-speed indoor air handlers. They work at low speeds most of the time, and they normally stay on longer at this lower speed than standard units, preventing temperature fluctuations.
Lower Utility Bills
With a programmable thermostat, you won’t need to use your HVAC system as much while you’re sleeping or working. Most programmable thermostats quickly pay for themselves through lower utility bills. They also help the environment by reducing your use of fossil fuels on gas or oil fuel systems.
Programmable thermostats let you avoid altering settings manually when you want to save energy, and you can make changes through your smartphone or computer. You can also customize the background color or set a password to keep guests and kids from making unauthorized changes. Some units even learn your schedule over time using motion sensors or cameras.
