A programmable thermostat can automatically change your home’s temperature when you normally leave for work, come home, and go to sleep. Some models learn your routine over time by connecting to cameras or motion sensors. Others let you program a different schedule for every day of the week. Here are three reasons installing a programmable thermostat in your Lewisville, Texas, home is a smart investment:
Setting your programmable thermostat to turn down your HVAC system when you’re asleep or away will conserve energy and lower your utility bills. It can also reduce wear and tear on your HVAC system. As a result, it’ll prevent breakdowns and extend its lifespan.
In a zoned system, a programmable thermostat uses dampers in ductwork to send treated air where it’s needed most. That way, you won’t have to heat or cool empty rooms. As a result, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint and avoid wasting money.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Many programmable thermostats include humidity and indoor air quality monitors. They can let you know when your humidity is too high or low, helping you keep your home’s humidity at optimal levels. Some models will let you know when the air in your home has too much dust, dirt, pollen or other contaminants. They can also remind you to change your air filter or schedule preventive HVAC maintenance.
Because programmable thermostats operate on a schedule, you won’t have to remember to change your settings every time you leave. Many of the newest programmable thermostats can even communicate wirelessly with your smart device, making temperature changes simple. They can also track your home’s energy use and require a password for changes. That way, kids and guests can’t alter your settings.
