Upgrades are available with almost everything you buy these days, but do they all deliver actual product upgrade benefits? One upgrade that more than pays for itself immediately is a programmable thermostat for your heating and cooling system. When used correctly, it significantly improves energy efficiency in your home, reducing your carbon footprint and saving you money.
Setting up your programmable thermostat to heat or cool your home only when you are there is an excellent way to improve energy efficiency. While you know the benefits of adjusting the thermostat to avoid wasting energy and money if you are leaving the house, we often forget to make that adjustment during the rush out the door. With a programmable thermostat, you never have to worry about forgetting. Your system will automatically adjust to keep your energy use and costs down.
Your programmable thermostat also allows your unit to work at more optimal temperatures while you sleep. Recommended temperatures for your HVAC unit are 78 deg; when cooling and 68 deg; when heating. However, these temperatures may be too extreme for some people to feel comfortable. With a programmable system, you can enjoy the temperature you want while falling asleep. When you are getting up, you can enjoy a different temperature. These little adjustments can save quite a bit of energy and money.
When you use it correctly, the programmable thermostat offers significant energy efficiency. To learn more about programmable thermostats and other product upgrade benefits, contact our friendly team of experts at McCall’s Supply today.
