Looking for a way to save money on heating and cooling without getting rid of your older HVAC system? One simple change can make it a lot easier for you to stay comfortable, and it can help you regain control over your monthly heating and cooling costs. All you have to do is trade out the thermostat on the wall (with the help of a professional).
The Difference a Programmable Thermostat Can Make
If you’re still using a manual thermostat for your air conditioning and heating systems, you know just what a hassle this can be. Manual thermostats don’t have clear digital displays, which makes it harder to find just the right temperature. You may end up tampering with the thermostat excessively, leading to frequents startups that raise your bills and wear down the components.
A programmable thermostat has everything you need to stay comfortable and save money:
- A clear display so that you know you’ve got it set to just the right temperature.
- Preprogrammed settings so that your air conditioner automatically readjusts the temperature, even when you forget, to save energy when you are not home.
- The ability to automatically raise the temperature by 8-10 degrees (or lower it, in the summer) for 8 hours a day, which can save you up to 15% on heating (and cooling) costs.
Get a Smarter Thermostat
One of the best upgrades you can make to your heating and cooling systems is a smart thermostat. This is a thermostat that connects to the Wi-Fi in your home so that you can operate it from an app on your phone (or from the wall unit itself). A smart thermostat:
- Automatically learns your daily temperature preferences within a week.
- Lets you make the home more comfortable for an unexpected early arrival or a surprise houseguest, even when you are far away.
- Allows you to lower the heat to save energy while you are at work or out running errands.
- Makes it a lot easier to keep track of your energy usage.
