Programmable thermostats are one of the quickest and easiest ways to cut energy costs. You can save on your bill every time you are not at home.
Programmable thermostats save energy by turning down the cooling and heating system at night or at times when your home is typically unoccupied. This can be particularly effective if your home is unoccupied for large periods of the day, like while your family is at work and school.
All you need to do is adjust the temperature for the time you are away from home and while your family is asleep. In other words, raise it a few degrees in the summer and lower in the winter, at the time you don’t necessarily need optimum comfort. The thermostat will then automatically control your HVAC equipment, while the system runs less. Your heating or cooling will then automatically return to the optimum comfort level when you come home or wake up, at the settings you choose. It’s easy to set up, and your HVAC contractor should be able to help.
Oh! One more thing. Rebates are offered to homeowners through utility and public service companies. Check our Search for Rebates section to see if you qualify.Search For Rebates
