Programmable Thermostats Save You Money and Hassle

Jan 21 ,2013

Programmable ThermostatsIn the frigid cold of a Minneapolis winter, no one wants to come home at the end of the day to a bone-chilling environment. Leaving a fuel-burning furnace or boiler running while you’re away, however, is not only wasteful but dangerous as well. A programmable thermostat installed by the HVAC experts at Northern’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning is an economical solution. These affordable devices are like a mini heating system upgrade, allowing your Minneapolis heating system to work better and smarter.

How a Programmable Thermostat Works

Most programmable thermostats come with four different settings for every day of the week. You can schedule the thermostat to lower the temperature while you’re away at home and raise it in time to ensure that the family comes home to comfortable environment. The thermostats can be set to lower the temperature while the family’s sleeping as well and raised again so that everyone wakes up to a warm and comfy home.

How Much Can You Save?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for every degree that you turn down your thermostat in an eight-hour period, you’ll save around 2% on your monthly energy bills. Most homeowners achieve at least a 10% savings. The EPA stresses that careful programming is the key to maximum savings. Our skilled HVAC technicians can not only install the thermostat for you but can help you program the settings as well.

Smart Options

A broad selection of thermostats ensures the right choice for any home. Some models have “smart” technology that allows them to adjust your heating system’s operation automatically to keep your home within a single degree of your ideal temperature. Some are Wi-Fi enabled so that you can alter settings from your computer or a mobile device.

A programmable thermostat lets you a comfortable environment whenever you’re at home and eliminates the need to get up in the middle of a cold night to adjust the temperature.
