Your busy life keeps you running, and sometimes it feels like you’re away from the house more than you’re there. Paying utility bills for your Georgia home when you’re not there to enjoy it is frustrating, but a programmable thermostat may be the solution. It can help you save money and run your home more efficiently.
You Set the Schedule
The beauty of a programmable thermostat is that you can set it to run automatically on a schedule you set based on your family’s activity. So if everyone is away all day, you can let the house get warmer in the summer and colder in the winter during those hours, saving you money and wear and tear on your HVAC system. Anytime you veer from your routine, you can always override the preset program.
When your HVAC unit runs on a consistent schedule, it operates more efficiently with less pressure on the components. Even a system that is older can run more effectively when paired with a programmable thermostat.& It’s worth considering before you spend the money on a new unit.
An App for That
Another positive to a programmable thermostat is the ability to control it from anywhere via an application on your smartphone. If you’re out and about, but you’re planning to arrive home in a couple of hours, you can be sure the house is cozy and comfortable when you get there. Just grab your phone and tell the system to cool or warm the house to a set temperature by that time. It’s also handy to be able to adjust the settings from anywhere in the house without having to go to the thermostat on the wall.
To get the most out of your programmable thermostat, it’s critical that it be installed correctly. Byrd Heating and Air Conditioning can help you determine the best device and the ideal placement for it within your home. Call us at 912-373-8447 to schedule your evaluation today.
