Set Your Thermostat for Maximum Comfort and Savings

A programmable thermostat makes taking control of your home comfort easy, plus it can help you save some money. This thermostat can be programmed around your schedule, so you can minimize how much you’re paying to heat your home when you’re not around. With the ever-changing weather in Englewood, a programmable thermostat can keep your home’s temperature exactly where you want it, when you want it there.

The best way to get the most benefits from your programmable thermostat is to take some time to examine your family’s schedule. By doing this, you can plan how to program your thermostat so you don’t waste energy when you and your family are gone, but you can avoid having anyone coming home to a house that’s uncomfortably hot or cold.

You could try to remember to adjust your thermostat before you leave and when you return, but why go through extra hassle when the programmable thermostat was designed to simplify your life and make your home more comfortable? Simply set it and forget it… and saving on energy is a great bonus.

In order to help your system operate more efficiently, program your thermostat for large periods of time and limit your temperature changes to 10 degrees or less. Doing this will save you money and help ensure you are comfortable in your home. It takes your system less energy to keep your home at a fairly constant temperature than it does to turn it on when you get home and try to heat a cold house.

A programmable thermostat operates with the same essential functions as a traditional thermostat, but also comes equipped with a variety of preprogrammed settings to trim down your energy utilization and, therefore, potentially lower your energy bills.

  • Preprogrammed settings often include designated options for when you are not home. Using these settings automatically adjusts your temperature setting whether you’re away from Englewood on vacation or only away from home for the day.
  • Some programmable thermostats have the option to lock the thermostat to prevent kids from accidentally (or purposely) adjusting the temperature and potentially raising your bill.
  • You should also know that setting the heat much warmer than you’d normally set it will not help your house warm up more quickly. Many people assume that cranking the heat up in a cold house will warm it up faster, but it doesn’t. And they’ll forget to turn it back down, making the house uncomfortably warm and wasting energy.

When you want to ensure your home is always comfortable and would be happy to save some money, a programmable thermostat is a great option.
