In the past, thermostats were pretty basic with their functionality. You could have heat or air, on or off, and set the temperature. That was about it. Once you left the house, the furnace or air conditioner did exactly what it was doing before you left.
These days, you can have an enormous amount of control over your home temperature. There are definitely benefits to a programmable gas furnace thermostat.
1. They’re low-cost.
Programmable thermostats are reasonably priced and easy to install. You can even work with the HVAC dealer who sells you the thermostat to make sure it is properly installed for your system.
2. You can get more control over your temperature than ever before.
Once you’ve installed a programmable gas furnace thermostat you’ll find how easy it is to control the temperature in your home. You can change the temperature when no one is home, and set it to warm up (or cool off) before you get home. You can also adjust it for nighttime or for when you’re on vacation. There is enormous flexibility with temperature control.
3. It’s easy to save money and lower energy costs.
When you set your gas furnace thermostat to adjust when no one is home, you’ll save money and use less energy heating or cooling an empty house.
4. Increase your comfort.
With the flexibility of the programmable thermostat, you also have the flexibility to adjust the temperature to suit your comfort level for any time of day or night. And you can change it with the seasons simply by reprogramming it.
There are so many benefits to having a programmable gas furnace thermostat that there’s really no good reason not to have one.
