When you want a way to save money on your monthly heating bills, a new thermostat might be one of the easiest ways to do it. Getting a new thermostat from a trained technician gives you a whole lot of options, some of which have helped homeowners to save hundreds of dollars a year on heating and cooling costs. Take a look at how new digital, programmable thermostats help homeowners to save, or how you can save with a smart thermostat with even more features.
Digital Programmable Thermostats
A digital thermostat is a big upgrade from a manual thermostat that has a dial you have to turn or a sliding switch that’s tough to line up. Often, you’re unsure of whether the temperature you think you’ve set is really accurate. A digital thermostat has a clear display so that you can feel confident that you get exactly the heating and cooling power you want. If you are just a couple of degrees off, you could spend too much on heating and cooling costs, just as if you readjust the temperature too often to get it just right.
And the programmable features on most modern programmable thermostats help you to save even more, assuming you know how to use them. Keep the temperature at a consistent level throughout the day, but lower or raise it automatically when you plan to leave for work or school. You can save some money this way, especially if you’re someone who often forgets to lower the heat when you go.
With a smart thermostat, you save even more. Connect it to your smart phone and monitor daily usage. Delay the programmed settings from work if you plan to arrive home late. Make adjustments at any time, from almost anywhere—as long as you have an internet connection.
