CONCORD − If you’re looking for an economical way to save energy with your HVAC system, consider installing a programmable thermostat. Not only can a programmable thermostat reduce your heating and cooling bills, it can also simplify your daily routine and increase both comfort and convenience.
The main benefit of a programmable thermostat is it gives you more control of your HVAC system’s operation and allows you to create a customized heating and cooling schedule. You can set your system to turn on right before you get up in the morning, turn off after you leave for work and turn back on just before you return. That way, regardless of the time of day, your home’s temperature will already be at your desired setting when you need it. Plus, since everything is pre-programmed, you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn off your system before you leave for the day.
In addition to these benefits, modern thermostat models like the Honeywell Wi-Fi 9000 further increase convenience by allowing you to control your HVAC system from your smartphone.
