Four Benefits of Using a Programmable Thermostat for Your Heating and Cooling System in Kalamazoo
There are many reasons that programmable thermostats have become the standard for heating and cooling systems in Kalamazoo and beyond. In this post, JP Heating & Air Conditioning will discuss four benefits of using a programmable thermostat in your home.
You will save money by using less energy. The main benefit of programmable thermostats for many homeowners is the fact that they almost always result in heating and cooling cost savings when used properly. In fact, about half of the energy used in your home goes toward your furnace and air conditioning system. When you have a programmable thermostat, you have more control over your energy usage by setting a schedule that your thermostat follows to raise or lower the temperature (depending on the season) while you’re away from home.
Besides cost savings, a programmable thermostat can help you to reduce your energy usage as a way to limit your environmental impact.
You will maintain a more consistent temperature. Programmable thermostats allow you to keep your home at a more consistent, comfortable temperature. Instead of allowing your home to get to an uncomfortably cold or warm level – causing you to crank your thermostat up or down – your programmable thermostat keeps on schedule and keeps your home feeling just how you want it at all times.
You save time and effort. With a programmable thermostat you set up your schedule and forget about it unless your schedule changes because of a new season or a lifestyle change. Also, new programmable thermostats are WiFi capable, allowing your thermostat to be controlled from your computer or smartphone whether you’re in your home, off running errands, or on vacation.
You can receive energy rebates. Most energy companies offer a rebate to upgrade to a programmable Thermostat. JP Heating & Air Conditioning technicians have these on their trucks and are able to offer these upgrades if you desire. Rebates range from $10 to $100.
