Are you one of the millions of Americans looking to lower their energy cost bills? A simple tech upgrade to make is to use a programmable thermostat, newer homes and older homes that have been renovated have digital thermostats already, but everyone doesn’t utilize the functionality to program them. Perhaps it's just time to update the existing digital programmable thermostat, whatever the reason...it is a smart decision for your Merritt Island, Florida home or business that can save you money!
Let’s look at a few benefits:
● Time-Saving - Many people lower the temperature on the thermostat at night and raise it during the day while away at work. How often have you forgotten to do this? Sometimes it can be a pain to run back in the house before you leave for work to raise the temperature or even worse, getting in bed and having to get out to check the thermostat. We’ve heard all different types of stories. If you utilize the schedule feature on the programmable thermostat, you won’t have to worry about that anymore! Digital thermostats can be programmed to your most favorable temperature settings, ensuring your comfort level is maintained throughout the day. Another bonus, if you go on vacation or will be away for a few days, you can set the thermostat to fit your needs as well.
● Money Saving - Setting the temperature on your programmable thermostat will allow you to save money on heating and cooling costs. On average, you can save 10-30% according to the EPA. The money you save can be spent on other things you and your family enjoy.
