With every new technological innovation, our homes are getting more intelligent to make our lives easier. The same is true with programmable thermostats, and your Orlando, Florida, home services leader, Rainaldi, can help you make the right decision when it comes to a programmable thermostat.
1. Set It and Forget It
Just like you can with a slow cooker, a programmable thermostat allows you to set the schedule for your home’s heating and air conditioning and walk away. Programmable thermostats give you the option to set a schedule for 24 hours or an entire week that allows your home to stay comfortable while saving you the headache of remembering to change the temperature. There’s no manual adjustment needed for these smart thermostats.
2. Consistency is Key
Because of the ability to set it and forget it, you’ll have a more consistent home comfort schedule, so you’ll know your home will be ready for you at a comfortable temperature when you come home from work. Plus, the consistent program allows your system to build up (or lower down to) the scheduled temperature, thus eliminating the extra effort to cool or heat the room when you return quickly.
3. Big Time Savings
That consistency mentioned in point number two also means energy savings for your home and monetary savings for your pocketbook. Your programmable thermostat allows you to bump up the temperature in your home while you’re at work and the kids are at school, eliminating the need for continual cooling to keep everyone comfortable. This simple act saves energy. A programmable thermostat also has a sensor to regulate the temperature based on the ambient room temperature, saving energy and time. The amount of savings you’ll receive over time with a programmable thermostat overrides any initial cost for installation.
4. Comfort All-Around
If your home has multiple climate zones, you can install a programmable thermostat in each zone to help regulate the temperatures much more efficiently and effectively.
5. Best First Step to Efficiency
If you’re looking at updating your home by upgrading your home’s efficiency and shrinking utility bills, a programmable thermostat is the best first step in getting to your goal because it’s the easiest and most cost-effective step. The initial installation will see at least a 10 percent reduction in energy bills from the very beginning. Plus, it’s something that you can do now before investing more in your home comfort system that’s easy to install.
