A programmable thermostat isn’t much better than your old manual thermostat if you’re not using or programming it correctly. The difference between proper operation and improper operation can be hundreds of dollars in energy savings every year. Find out how you can program your programmable thermostat for maximum energy savings.
How It Saves Energy
First, it helps to understand how a programmable thermostat saves energy in a typical home. It’s fairly simple – anything that improves your ability to reduce heating and cooling system operation when nobody’s home will save energy. The same goes when everybody’s sleeping and can tolerate cooler temperatures in the winter. A thermostat that can be programmed for energy-saving setbacks to match your schedule is a big improvement over relying on your memory and diligence in constantly adjusting and readjusting a manual thermostat.
