Installing an energy-efficient heating and cooling system can save you a substantial amount of money on monthly bill costs. When controlling the temperature of your Twin Cities home, keep in mind the advantages of installing a programmable thermostat. Staying comfortable shouldn’t have to cost an arm and a leg, and upgrading your thermostat is a great way to save money year-round.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, space heating accounts for 45 percent of your energy bills, while cooling your home accounts for six percent. By setting your thermostat back seven to fifteen degrees for the eight hours a day you may be at work, you can save five to fifteen percent a year on heating bills. This can easily be accomplished by using a programmable thermostat.
In addition to energy and cost savings, many homeowners find the convenience of mobile compatibility beneficial. Programmable thermostats, including the Nest Learning Thermostat or the Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat, can be controlled through a smartphone. Whether you’re at work or on vacation, you can adjust your home temperature quickly and easily on a mobile device.
A digital, programmable system can also allow you to control your home’s temperature to offer a more customizable heating and cooling plan. These programmable thermostats avoid discomfort by returning your home to desired settings before you wake up or walk through the door. As a homeowner, you will be able to control temperature settings to meet your lifestyle needs on a daily basis.
