Your HVAC system consists of many parts. Some are big and some are small, but they are all valuable in the overall performance of the system. Such is the case with your system’s thermostat. While small in stature, the thermostat plays a vital role in keeping your home climate-controlled and comfortable. The thermostat is the virtual command center of the system and tells the air conditioner or furnace when to come on, how long to run and what temperature to reach and maintain. Is your thermostat programmable? If not, your friends at Masters Heating & Cooling Inc, recommend switching out your old manual thermostat to a programmable model pronto. Read on for some of the benefits you will enjoy with a programmable thermostat.
Programmable thermostats will allow you to use your system more efficiently and save you money on utility bills. Here’s how:
- Temperature adjustment flexibility. No more trying to remember to turn down the thermostat when you go to work or when no one is home. These devices allow you to set a schedule beforehand that the thermostat will automatically start/stop when you want it to.
- Prolong system lifespan. The more your HVAC system runs when it doesn’t need to, the more wear and tear it will incur. A programmable thermostat reduces the demand for the system to run and can prolong the equipment’s longevity and help reduce long-term maintenance costs.
- WiFi capability. Today’s programmable thermostats employ WiFi technology that allows you to synch the thermostat with a personal device. This enables you to monitor the system from remote and make any changes while away from the home, such as when you are on vacation or when a sudden change in the weather means more heating or cooling is necessary.
- Lower energy bills. Along with taking care of your HVAC equipment, this is the big benefit. By reducing the demands on your system when you are not home or weather patterns shift, your system will operate more efficiently and consume less energy. You will notice the difference in decreased utility bills.
