One thing I did not know about programmable thermostats were the fact that they were a key player in energy savings! I found this little fact out by studying a website that was all about energy saving tips.
I was trying to find a way to lower our bi-weekly electric bills this Wintertide because last year they were over the top; There was times I had to make payment arrangements with our local electric supplier to be able to even keep our electric on! What I found with programmable thermostats (otherwise known as smart thermostats) is that because you can program the temperature control in your home, you will run your central heating plus A/C plan a lot less than you would with a familiar thermostat. It does not sound like a lotâ€¦ But really when you add up all the use of the heating in the really cold months of the year it really is, and when you set a official digital thermostat or dial thermostat to a particular temperature, occasionally it comes on when you really don’t need the heating. By running the heating when you do not need it you are using energy that you really do not need to be using! With the programmable thermostat you do not have to do that any longer! I updated our old digital thermostat to one of these programmable thermostats plus I can tell you that they really do save you on energy use! So if you have high electric bills any time of the year…look into a programmable thermostat.
