It seems like every day brings a new advancement in technology. Not too long ago, no one had heard of a smart house or virtual assistant. Now they’re everywhere. Programmable thermostats are getting more advanced too. If you aren’t already benefiting from using one in your Northeastern Pennsylvania home, here are five reasons to invest in one.
- You’ll save money: Perhaps one of the most compelling reasons to add a programmable thermostat to your home is how much money it could save you. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you could save up to 10% on your annual heating and cooling bills by following their guidelines for adjusting your thermostat’s settings.
- You’ll enjoy a consistent temperature in your home: With a programmable thermostat in use, your home will stay at whatever your desired temperature is for consistent comfort.
- You’ll benefit from advanced features: You can set your thermostat to adjust your home’s temperature according to your family’s sleep, work, and school schedule. Need to make a change while you’re out of the house? Even if you’re far away on vacation, you can adjust it remotely. Modern units include features like Wi-Fi capability, mobile device syncing, Bluetooth capability, and compatibility with your virtual assistant devices (e.g., Alexa and Google Nest). Some even coordinate with the weather forecast.
- You’re in complete control: You can keep different areas of your home at different temperatures and on different schedules.
- Your HVAC system will run better: When you link a programmable thermostat to your HVAC system, it operates more efficiently. You may even be able to squeeze a few more years out of an aging system by adding a programmable thermostat. When your HVAC system runs more efficiently, you save money and reduce your carbon footprint. It’s win win!
