It’s possible to save up to 10% of your cooling bills by raising the thermostat setting between 10 and 15 degrees for eight hours every day. However, you may not remember to set back the temperature. This is when a programmable thermostat comes in handy. A programmable thermostat offers several benefits to homeowners in Palm City, FL.
With a programmable thermostat, you don’t have to remember to turn the thermostat up or down when leaving home. The thermostat has a sensor that regulates the temperature based on the ambient room temperature.
When you’re not home, you can turn set the temperature of your space higher or lower to save energy. A programmable thermostat regulates temperature automatically, so you never have to manually set the temperature.
Turning down your AC system during the cooling season doesn’t cool your home faster. Instead, it may cool the home more than you desired. Programmable thermostats maintain a constant temperature.
Better for HVAC Zoning
If you have multiple climate zones around your house, installing a programmable thermostat in each can help you cool or heat the rooms better. Having different zones improves the efficiency of the HVAC systems and enhances the comfort in each zone.
Less Manual Adjusting
The main problem with having a manual thermostat is that you may forget to adjust the temperatures. With a programmable thermostat, you only need to set the temperature once and you’re all set. Some programmable thermostats are smart, and you can set them from your smartphone.
You can control smart programmable thermostats remotely, making them a better choice for the energy-conscious homeowner. Both programmable and smart thermostats have sensors to detect the temperature and humidity levels in your home for efficient adjustments.
