Upgrading a Thermostat
If you’re tired of having to change the thermostat temperature, and of realizing you forgot to do so before you left home, a programmable thermostat will break the chains tying you to the thermostat. With the convenience of advanced technology, you program it once and the thermostat takes it from there. Other advantages are as follows:
- Programming: There a number of configurations available in thermostats. There are thermostats with the programming to fit any schedule. Even busy families with a lot of occupants coming and going at different times, there is a thermostat for your household. Override features are available for a one time override each time it is used. Regardless of your schedule, you can set it and forget it.
- Saves Energy: A programmable thermostat will provide your heating and air conditioning system with precise control, and enabling you to save energy dollars. Keep in mind, for each 1 degree you adjust the temperature you can save about 1% on the cost of energy. This means for example, if you maintain a temperature of 70 degrees when the home is occupied during the winter, by dropping the temperature to 65 while you sleep, you save 10% on the cost of heating. When you leave for work if you drop the temperature to 55, you can save as much as 15% while you are away. With a programmable thermostat this occurs automatically. You don’t have to remember to adjust the thermostat, and you won’t have to remind your teen who beats you home to adjust the thermostat. When programmed to reflect occupant’s schedules, and it is controlled automatically. This adds up in energy savings.
- Design: The backlit display and touchscreen control in sleek new designs are no longer the unattractive box on the wall.
Convenience and Ease
Digital thermostats detect the current temperature and compare it to the preset temperature. In the case of a programmable thermostat, it compares it to the preset control for the current timeframe. When a rise or fall in temperature doesn’t match the preset selection, the thermostat automatically starts the heating and air conditioning system. When you initially program the thermostat, you enable the thermostat to monitor and control the HVAC system.
