6 Reasons to Use a Programmable Thermostat
Homeowners in Jacksonville all appreciate a cool home to beat the Florida heat. Finding and setting the perfect temperature used to be a lot tougher. Programmable thermostat technology has now made setting your HVAC system’s temperature a piece of cake. If you have been thinking about investing in a programmable thermostat, you have come to the right place. Here are 6 reasons to install a programmable thermostat in your home.
Adjust Temperature Automatically
With a programmable thermostat controlling your HVAC system, you’re able to set up heating and cooling periods for your home. This means that you can leave your HVAC unit off while no one’s at home and have it start up right before people get back. This ensures that the HVAC unit isn’t working too hard when it doesn’t have to all while keeping your home at the perfect temperature.
A digital programmable thermostat usually has a touchscreen or some kind of digital interface. Because of the touchscreen, you’re able to get instant feedback from your HVAC system. This helps you know what the temperature is within the entire home, but it can do so much more. It can tell you if the air filters on the HVAC unit need changing or if another component needs to be serviced.
Heat and Cool Specific Rooms
A programmable thermostat for your HVAC system is perfect if you are interested in keeping one room cooler than another. You’re able to set up specific zones within the HVAC system’s thermostat so that you can set various temperature settings for different times of the day. You can have a warmer room for you while you sleep and a cooler room for someone who prefers a cooler sleep.
Because of the digital screen, setting your HVAC system’s temperature just looks better. No longer do you have to turn a dial to “hopefully” get the right temperature. You can simply press a few buttons on the screen and you’re all done!
Control From Anywhere
One of the major benefits of having a programmable thermostat for your HVAC unit is the ability to control it from anywhere. If you’ve planned a trip, your Jacksonville home’s HVAC doesn’t have to work at all to keep you cool since no one will be there. But if for some reason you forgot to turn off the AC, you can simply log into your thermostat’s app and turn it off from your phone. You can also program the thermostat before you leave to not run at all while you’re away. This will give your HVAC unit a break.
Save Energy & Money
The most important thing that a programmable thermostat provides you is savings. You save a lot of energy with a programmable thermostat because your HVAC system isn’t running all the time. You’re also saving a lot of money for the same reason. Money in your pocket thanks to a lower energy bill – all because of a programmable thermostat? Sounds pretty good to us.
