With the changing of the seasons, it’s time to think about how you are going to save money this winter. Winters in Baltimore, Maryland can get pretty chilly, so it is important to figure out a new way to keep your home warm while still saving money and being energy-efficient. One of the best new gadgets to help achieve this is a programmable thermostat. By installing a programmable thermostat in your home, you will be able to save money and energy without even thinking about it.
What Is It and How Does It Work?
A programmable thermostat is a device that allows you to program different temperatures on a set schedule. You are able to choose specific temperatures for different days of the week or even different times of the day. For example, you can turn down the heat while everyone is at work or school, but program a warmer temperature to keep everyone comfortable while they are home. More high-tech designs, such as the Carrier Cor Wi-fi Thermostat, will even let you program in energy-saving modes or change the settings from your mobile device. Another option is the Trane ComfortLink II, which lets you control temperatures room-by-room.
How Does This Help You Save?
Programming the desired temperature into the thermostat helps you run your HVAC system most efficiently. You are able to stay comfortable in your home without wasting any energy. This will also eliminate human error and make sure you don’t forget to turn the heat down when you leave.
You also save just by using your HVAC more efficiently. The more efficiently the system is running, the less it has to work, putting less stress on your appliances. The less stress, the longer they will last!
Programmable thermostats are offered in many different designs and include many high-tech features to make your home the most comfortable for you, while saving you tons of money. Contact Griffith Energy Services, Inc. at 888-474-3391 for more information about keeping your home warm this winter.
