As a homeowner, you look for ways to lower your utility bills while maintaining the same level of comfort. You may also hope that the temperature of your home is at a comfortable level when you arrive. Both of those benefits are possible with a programmable thermostat, but let’s look at more benefits a programmable thermostat will bring you in Loudon, TN.
Most of us remember the days before programmable thermostats. You either had to choose to come home to a house that was too cold or too hot or pay to have the heat or AC on the whole time while you were gone. A programmable thermostat adapts to your schedule and adjusts the temperature so you come back to a comfortable home.
It’s unlikely that you would willingly use far more energy than you must to heat or cool your home. Doing so is inefficient and raises your utility bills, but a programmable thermostat helps preserve energy by making sure there’s less wear and tear on your system.
Less HVAC Stress
When your HVAC system runs when it doesn’t need to, such as when you’re working outside the home, that increases the wear and tear on your system, increasing the need for repairs and maintenance. When you decrease the time that your HVAC system needlessly operates, you’re able to increase the system’s lifespan. In the long run, this saves you money on repairs and replacing the system before it reaches the average operational lifespan.
Have you ever wished you could mentally adjust your thermostat so your home would be at a comfortable temperature when you arrived? One of the most exciting features of a programmable thermostat is that you can access your thermostat remotely. Whether you’re coming home from a road trip or returning home from work, adjusting your thermostat is right under your fingertips with a smart phone or tablet.
