The Benefits of Programmable Thermostats

Programmable-Thermostat.jpegThe simple function of a programmable thermostat can not only increase the comfort levels in your home, but also save you money on your heating and cooling costs.

The heating and cooling experts at Donnelly’s explain how this piece of technology can save you money while reducing the time and effort you spend monitoring your home’s temperature.

Due to their energy saving benefits, improved comfort, convenience and cost-effective savings a programmable thermostat has become the obvious solution to optimal climate control. Programmable thermostats are programmed once, then you never have to touch them again (unless you want to). 

Compatible with both newer and older heating and cooling equipment, a programmable thermostat allows you to “set it and forget it” while it does the work for you. You set the temperature you want while you are there, you set the temperature you want your home to be while you’re away at work or vacation, and you’re done! 

Other programmable thermostat features to look for include:

  • Backlighting and digital display
  • Voice or phone programming
  • Hold and vacation features
  • Air filter change indicator light
  • System malfunction indicator light
  • Adaptive or smart recovery technology that senses the time needed to reach a given temperature within a set amount of time.

Once you’ve set your temperatures, you’re good to go until the season changes. Speaking of season changes, fall is just around the corner! If you have not already done so, you should schedule a fall tune-up to guarantee your heating system is ready for the cooler (and downright cold) months ahead.
