Programmable thermostats automatically adjust your home's temperature settings, allowing you to save energy while you're away or sleeping, and are more convenient and accurate than manual thermostats.
Control Your Heating Costs Automatically
You can stay warm every winter and still save money on your energy costs by installing a 7-day programmable thermostat in your home. When set correctly, programmable thermostats automatically adjust the indoor temperature so you use heat only when you really need it.
Programmable thermostats are inexpensive to buy and when programmed correctly will save you money on your energy costs—about $180/year:
- In the winter, set your thermostat to 68 degrees when you're home, and 60 degrees at night or when you are away.
- Setting the temperature to return to a comfortable setting a half hour before you come home will heat or cool the house appropriately without wasting energy while no one is home.
- Use the thermostat’s pre-programmed settings for maximum energy and money savings.
A Wi-Fi programmable thermostat offers all the functionality of a 7-day programmable thermostat, plus it contains built-in wireless technology that allows you to program it remotely through your smart phone or computer. You can change the temperature, keep your home comfortable, and reduce your energy use — even when you’re not home!
