The Benefits of Upgrading to a Programmable Thermostat

Like the majority of people, you probably aren't always home or away for at least a couple of hours each day. If your central heating and cooling system is running at high or low temperatures, you are setting yourself up for a ridiculously high energy bill. By switching to a programmable thermostat, you're actually saving more than 10% on your energy bill alone. So really, what are programable thermostats, and what are the benefits? 

What Are programmable thermostats? 

A programmable thermostat allows you to set the temperature of your home based on your specific schedule. Essentially, a programmable room thermostat lets you choose what times you want it to be on and what temperature it should reach while it's on, so you can select different temperatures in your home at different times of the day (and week) to meet your needs. 

What Are My Benefits? 

Hassle free: Imagine never having to adjust your thermostat or worry about it...dreamy right? As mentioned, with a programable thermostat, you can have different heating/cooling settings for different times of the day and week based entirely on your schedule. 

More money in your bank: By switching to a programmable thermostat, you are looking at saving at least 10% on whatever it is you're paying now. A programmable thermostat is extremely energy efficient, so over consumption isn't possible. For example, if you set your thermostat at night even 1 degree down, you are using 1% less energy, if you set it 10 degrees down, you're using 10% less energy and so on. 

Room-to-Room Comfort: In every home, there's always one person who prefers a different temperature than the other. But instead of battling war over what the temperature should be in the house, a programmable thermostat allows you to accommodate for different temperature settings by offering as many different climate control zones, which in turn gives you the ability to heat and cool only the rooms you want to and when you want to. 

If you're looking to get your heating and cooling under control this year and save money on your bills, AC Texas Cooling & Heating is your top choice for affordable comfort.
