Stay Comfortable and Save Energy With a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat can automatically change the temperature in your Corpus Christie-area home to fit your lifestyle. These useful high-tech devices can help you save energy while keeping you and your family comfortable. They’re an inexpensive investment, and you’ll recoup the cost through energy savings in just a year or two. Many programmable thermostats come with a variety of settings, user-friendly displays, and HVAC monitoring for even more comfort and savings.
Lots of Settings
Set your programmable thermostat to turn your heater or air conditioner down when you go to work or to sleep and then turn it back up about half an hour before you wake up or come home. Some programmable thermostats have convenient remotes, and you can control others with your smartphone or computer.
Homeowners can program a different schedule for each day of the week with some units, and others can switch between two schedules for weekdays and weekends. The least expensive models only work on one schedule, so you’ll have to make more last-minute changes to keep your home efficient and comfotable. However, all programmable thermostats offer options to help HVAC systems use less energy than with conventional thermostats.
Many programmable thermostats have colorful touchscreens with simple, interactive instructions to help you program them and make temporary changes. Some models include voice activation, and others have a keyboard lock to keep guests or kids from changing your settings.
Detailed HVAC Monitoring
If you choose the right programmable thermostat for your HVAC system and have it installed by an experienced professional, it can give you a lot of useful information about your system. Some models can monitor your home’s humidity and indoor air quality. Many also remind you when you should change your HVAC system’s air filter and let you know when electricity is more expensive.
