3 Ways a Programmable Thermostat Can Help Keep You Cooler While Saving Money This Summer
Learn how the product upgrade benefits of a programmable thermostat will help you keep more money in your wallet.
Are the product upgrade benefits of a programmable thermostat really worth the hype? When the weather gets warm, the air conditioner runs around the clock. This gets expensive fast. To save money during the hottest months of the year, you should consider installing a programmable thermostat. Here are three of the money-saving benefits you can expect.
1.Only Pay for Energy You Use
Think about how often you’re not at home during the day. Many people work or have other obligations outside of their home. However, a lot of people continue to run their air conditioner even when they’re not there.
With a programmable thermostat, you can set it to adjust to different temperatures throughout the day. For example, if you work from 9-5, you can increase the setting by several degrees while you’re gone. Program the thermostat to cool the house again before you’re back home for the evening.
2.Create Day and Night Settings
People tend to sleep better at night when it’s a little cooler in the house. If you fall into this category, you can program your thermostat a few degrees lower in the evening. While this may not seem cost-efficient, remember that it doesn't cost as much to cool your home once the sun goes down. You’ll save money by not keeping your house as cold during the daytime hours.
3.Program During Peak Hours
When the sun is directly overhead, your home will be the hottest. This usually happens during the middle of the day. If you plan on being home during these peak hours, program your thermostat to cool down the house a few degrees. You shouldn’t have to worry about sweating while lounging on your sofa.
Set the thermostat to a higher temperature an hour or two later when the sun begins to set. This way you won’t forget to adjust your thermostat as temperatures fall. You can enjoy your air conditioner without breaking the bank.
If you’re still using a manual thermostat, it’s time to consider an upgrade. Programmable models not only look cool, but they’ll also keep you cool. Plus, you’ll enjoy the savings on your energy bill.
