Benefits of a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable ThermostatA thermostat is designed to keep your home (or room) at a specific temperature, it controls your HVAC, heating or cooling system to maintain a temperature set by you, specific to your comfort needs, throughout the winter or summer season.

Old VS New

An older style thermostat was quite a simple affair; usually a single rotary wheel, set at XX degrees and that was the most control you could have – the contacts in the thermostat either make or break the electrical circuit. The later and more technologically advanced ‘stats have opened up a whole new world in control, some are even voice controlled and programmed – no need for an instruction manual the size of the latest bestselling blockbuster novel.

Benefits

It goes without saying that all appliances vary, as do thermostats, but generally, you can have different temperatures, different times, zoning control and a whole host of other features. This enables you to set temperatures for different times of the day, different parts of the home and gives you the control over your system that you always thought you should have.

Installation

These later types of thermostats can usually be retro-fitted to many different systems, but you need to talk to a professional installer to find out whether your system will take it and whether you may actually get any benefit from it. Installation is usually quick, with minimum disruption.

Savings

Being able to control your system exactly as you want, generally means that there are cost saving to be found through fitting a programmable ‘stat. With energy prices climbing ever upward, that can only be a huge benefit.
