Wouldn’t it be great to come home every day to a house that is just the right temperature no matter whether it is the “dog days” of summer, or during the deep freeze of winter? With today’s technology it is not only possible, but it is getting more and more affordable for homes of all sizes. Let’s take a look at the benefits of installing programmable thermostats in your home with Wayne Alarm.
Making the change from a manual thermostat to one that is programmable, or even a part of your comprehensive home automation system, makes sense, not just for comfort, but for your wallet and the environment as well.
- Cost Savings – Most homeowners are switching to programmable thermostats for the simple reason that it is a cost savings. Energy bills can show that savings immediately. For example, for every degree you raise or lower the temperature in your home during the heat of the summer or the cold of winter, you can save up to 2 percent on your utility bill. By using a programmable thermostat, homeowners can determine when the system turns on and off instead of using it when not at home or forgetting to shut it down at night or while at work.
- Comfort – No one likes coming home after a long day at work to a cold home in the winter or a stifling one in the summer. We all want to have the optimum comfort level for our family. With a programmable thermostat, homeowners can set the times for the system to increase or decrease air in coordination with your work/school hours. For homeowners who choose home automation, controlling the system is as easy as pressing a few buttons on a smartphone or tablet.
- Energy Efficiency and Environmental Factors – Homes that use programmable thermostats save energy and are better for the environment. Programmable thermostats are energy efficient and cut wasteful heating and cooling when homeowners are out or away from the home for extended periods of time.
