Programmable Thermostat Features Go Way Beyond Temperature Control

Monitoring indoor temperatures is a must for any homeowner wanting to save energy. Programmable thermostats make this possible without the hassle of manually adjusting the thermostat. In addition, programmable thermostats go way beyond controlling temperatures to give you real energy savings, convenience and ease of use.

Most people are familiar with how programmable thermostats work. With even the most basic system, the homeowner presets the thermostat to turn on the heating and cooling functions when the home is occupied and to turn them off when no one is home.

Even more than that, though, programmable systems allow you to get the maximum efficiency for your HVAC equipment. Using the settings to match how and when your family uses the home, you can save anywhere from 10 percent to 15 percent on utility bills. By turning your thermostat back by about eight degrees during the day, while the family is at school or work, and four degrees during the night (for the cooling season) for an eight hour period each day, you realize savings on energy use without having to think about it.

Programmable thermostats are also really convenient. Some models allow you to program two different settings, one for weekdays and one for weekends. Other models give maximum flexibility, allowing you to program each day differently, according to your lifestyle. Most programmable thermostats also come with a hold feature, which lets you override a setting when your schedule changes unexpectedly.

When you choose a programmable thermostat, keep in mind the features that make them really easy to use. Most models use an easy-to-read digital format. Some come with features that prompt you when it’s time to change the battery or even the filters on your HVAC equipment. Touch pad capabilities and voice programming give you the ultimate flexibility and ease of use.

You may be drawn to programmable thermostats because they give you control over temperature, but they also impact efficiency, are easy to use, and convenient.
