Programmable thermostats offer the comfort and convenience you desire while also making it easier to save on your energy bill. Whether you’re having a new one installed or if you’ve had one for some time, it is imperative to understand how to use the programmable thermostat for the best in efficiency and savings.
Energy Saving Tips with a Programmable Thermostat
The thought behind a programmable thermostat is that you will reduce the amount of energy being used while at work, asleep, or on vacation. The programmable thermostat settings are designed to deliver savings without sacrificing comfort. Depending on the schedule of your household or office, you can stick to the pre-programmed settings to see your savings, or, you can adjust the settings as suitable for your household. The idea is to set in place a program that will reduce heating or cooling automatically when it isn’t needed as much.
Where many homes and offices falter is by setting their programmable thermostat to “manual” and then forgetting to adjust the desired temperature. If you’re going to be away for an extended period of time, or during the hours when your household is asleep, adjust the temperature 5-10 degrees (down in the winter, up in the summer) to achieve a level of comfort while still saving on energy costs.
