Wondering about the product upgrade benefits of a programmable thermostat? Here are three ways installing one for your HVAC will help to make your winter nights cozier.

If you are gearing up for a cold winter, you may be wondering if the product upgrade benefits of a programmable thermostat are worth it. You need your home to be warm and cozy, but you don’t want to pay an astronomical energy bill each month. While a programmable thermostat can’t work magic, it can help you to keep your evenings comfortable while helping you to minimize energy costs. Here are three ways investing in one can increase the comfort levels in your home:

#1: Set it to warm up before you get home at night.

It’s a good idea to program the thermostat setting to decrease the indoor temperature while you and the family are away for the day and increase it 15-20 minutes before you get home. By doing this, you can avoid wasting money to heat an empty home but will have things nice and warm the moment you walk in the door.

#2: Keep it warm until you hop into bed so that you can fall asleep easily.

While you are hanging out at home, having dinner, and watching television before bedtime, you will want the house to be warm. However, you can turn down the thermostat right before you get into bed for the night. You’ll have the blankets to keep you warm, and studies show you can actually fall asleep more easily in a cooler room.

#3: Set it to warm up before you get out of bed.

It’s hard enough to get out of bed early in the morning but leaving the warmth of the blankets for a cold room is downright unpleasant. By programming the thermostat to warm up the house about 15-20 minutes before your alarm goes off in the morning, you’ll be able to enjoy a more comfortable home as you rise and shine.
