Proper Use of a Programmable Thermostat Can Save You Money This Summer

By in

At Climate Control Company, we know that in Glenwood Springs, using air conditioning running your cooling equipment for long periods of time to get rid of the heat or cooling unoccupied spaces can get expensive. Managing temperature fluctuations presents challenges as well. You may be able to control some of the costs, but simply opening windows doesn’t guarantee that your home will be the ideal temperature throughout the day. That assurance would come more easily with a programmable thermostat.

A thermostat keeps your home at a temperature that you determine is the ideal for your home. The Energy Information Administration reports that consumers could save anywhere from 10-30% on energy bills by using a programmable thermostat.

How Does a Programmable Thermostat Work?

Programmable thermostats work best when users set specific schedules for the desired temperature before the thermostat engages. This accessory allows you to pre-set different temperature ranges for your home throughout the day, if desired.  Many models allow users to set seven day schedules – meaning that you can set a different schedule for air conditioning use every day of the week. The most appealing feature is that you won’t have to touch the system once you’ve entered the specifications of the schedule. Temperatures remain consistent, saving you money and providing the highest level of comfort available.
