A programmable thermostat can reduce the amount of energy you use and save you money. Programmable thermostats allow you to set your home’s cooling or heating according to your personal schedule, giving you around-the-clock control.

Benefits of Programmable Thermostats

  • You can save energy when you’re away from home by setting the programmable thermostat to raise or lower the temperature. With this strategy, you avoid paying to heat or cool an empty house.
  • You can ensure that your home is comfortable by setting the thermostat to start cooling or warming before you get home so your living space is comfortable when you arrive.
  • You have the freedom to override the programmed schedule at any time, though this isn’t optimal since doing this can cause you to use more energy.
