Taking Your Summer Vacation? Program Your Thermostat Before You Leave
Programmable thermostats are a great upgrade to make to your home in order to save on energy consumption and funds. They are also incredibly convenient: When you leave the house for long periods of time during the day or to go on a vacation, setting up a program can save you from overusing your heating and cooling equipment. The money you save can be better spent on souvenirs before you head home to Delaware.
When you utilize the features of your programmable thermostat, you can set up different temperatures for different days and times. If you tend to be at home more on the weekends, you can set up a more comfortable weekend temperature program for your home. When you’re away on weekdays, you can prevent your HVAC system from running more than it needs to. Leaving the home for days at a time when you go on vacation can draw a lot of unnecessary power from your equipment. It’s convenient to program your thermostat model to run minimally and kick back on to a more comfortable temperature when it’s time for your return home. When you walk in the door you’ll be greeted with a comfortable climate and good indoor air quality, and you won’t have to adjust anything or wait for the temperature to level out.
Different thermostat models are available, and you can find basic models to keep costs at a minimum. Alternately, touch-screen models are available on higher-end models, and Energy Star models can be purchased as well. A number of units come pre-programmed with temperatures that will save you money but you can also alter these yourself if you wish.
