Set Your Thermostat for Maximum Comfort and Savings

Technology

A programmable thermostat makes managing your home comfort easy, while helping you save some money. You can program it around your routine, so won’t have to pay to heat your home when you’re away. With the unpredictable weather in Marshall, a programmable thermostat can keep your home’s temperature exactly where you want it, when you want it there.

The best way to get started with your programmable thermostat is to take some time to evaluate your family’s schedule. Once you do this, you can determine the best way to program your thermostat so you don’t waste energy when no one is home, but you also won’t have anyone coming home to a house that’s uncomfortably hot or cold.

You could take time to adjust your thermostat before you leave and when you return, but why make more work for yourself when the programmable thermostat was created to make your life easier and your home more comfortable? You just need to set it and forget it… and saving on energy is the icing on the cake.

You can help your system operate more efficiently by programming your thermostat for large periods of time and limit your temperature changes to 10 degrees or less. Doing this will save you money and help ensure you are comfortable in your home. It takes your system less energy to keep your home at a fairly constant temperature than it does to turn it on when you get home and try to heat a cold house.

A programmable thermostat operates with the same essential functions as a traditional thermostat, but also features a variety of preprogrammed settings to trim down your energy utilization and, therefore, potentially decrease your energy bills.

  • Preprogrammed settings often include specific options for when you are not home. Using these settings automatically adjusts your temperature setting whether you’re away from Marshall on vacation or just away from home for the day.
  • Some programmable thermostats have the option to lock the thermostat to inhibit kids from accidentally (or purposely) changing the temperature and potentially affecting your bill.
  • You should also know that setting the heat much warmer than you’d normally set it will not help your house warm up faster. Many people assume that cranking the heat up in a cold house will warm it up faster, but it doesn’t. And they’ll forget to turn it back down, making the house uncomfortably warm and wasting energy.

When you want to ensure your home is always comfortable and would like to save some money, a programmable thermostat is a great option.
