When Would You Use a Programmable Thermostat?
Luckily, there are countless instances that can help to illustrate why it’s great to have a programmable thermostat in your home or business. For example, imagine that you’re at your office and no one is at home. It’s costing you money to have your heating or cooling system run all day to keep a constant comfort level that no one is enjoying. Programmable thermostats allow you to set the temperature and conditions for your home’s comfort to maintain a more energy-efficient level for the times when no one is home. You can begin to save money by simply pressing a button.
Some programmable thermostats have an additional feature that allows you to remotely control the comfort of your home or business, right from your smart phone. This feature comes in handy in a number of different scenarios. Imagine that you’ve just landed at your vacation destination when you remember that you didn’t adjust the heating and cooling system. Without a programmable thermostat and this remote feature, your system would be running constantly the entire time that you’re gone, costing you money. In this case, with a simple touch of your phone, you can change the temperature from any location.
