10 Advantages of Installing a Programmable Thermostat

10 Advantages Of Installing A Programmable ThermostatProgrammable or smart thermostats are all the rage these days. There is a reason why an increasing number of Bay Area homeowners are considering making a switch to smart thermostats. These are ten advantages of installing a programmable thermostat.

1. Programmable thermostats help save money

The best way of battling high energy bills is to reduce your usage. Programmable thermostats will ensure that you don’t heat or cool your home while you are away. Instead, the thermostat will learn your individual usage and keep the house comfortable as per your routine. Minimal cost of making an upgrade will quickly be offset by the energy savings. On top of this, you will get to save more over the years.

2. Automation translates to savings and convenience

The only two options before smart thermostats came into existence was either pay to heat or cool your home while you were away or risk coming back to a really uncomfortable space. Now, you don’t need to keep readjusting the thermostat throughout the day. There are certain models that can be adjusted remotely. All you have to do is tap a button on your phone while leaving work to come back to a comfortable home.

3. Conditioning with precision

There is no denying the fact that programmable thermostats are precise. They have the ability to adjust to a temperature that is perfect for you. Every degree can help you save or lose 1 – 2% on energy bills. Manual thermostats, as per ACCA, suffer from a 5-degree variance in temperature. Programmable thermostats have a half degree variation.

4. Maintain consistent temperature

Programmable thermostats run at a constant level to maintain the perfect temperature within a home. It follows your set customizable schedule for ensuring comfort.

5. Increasing efficiency in your home

Programmable thermostat immediately makes a home more energy efficient. This means that you utilize your resources in a more effective manner.

6. Optimizing HVAC system

Upgrading an HVAC system is a big investment. You may not be ready to commit to a full upgrade right now even if the HVAC system is coming to the end of its useful life. Programmable thermostat is an affordable way of optimizing and operating the system. You would be able to increase the unit’s lifespan as well.

7. Use zoning to cut costs

Your home can be divided into separate zones depending on your lifestyle habits. This can help you manage an optimal temperature within the house. Programmable thermostat can help you automate the thermostat in each zone so that you can reduce bills even more.

8. System alerts

Few programmable thermostat models include sensors which can monitor your air filter. You would get a notification when it’s time to change the filter. Certain models alert users of changing different components and scheduling service too. This can be helpful towards preventative maintenance.

9. Control the thermostat from anywhere

Smart or Wi-fi thermostats can be controlled from anywhere remotely. All you need is a smartphone or a computer.

10. Lock your settings

You can lock your settings in certain ‘smart’ models. This can ensure that nobody in the family accidentally changes the temperature or unexpectedly tampers with it. This can again help in ensuring a comfortable temperature in the house.
