Programmable thermostats are a great upgrade to make to your home that will help reduce your energy costs if used properly. The use of a pre-set schedule can help minimize the use of your heating and cooling equipment, and lower your monthly energy bills.Programmable thermostats come in a number of different styles. The base touch-pad thermostat comes with data already entered, which is designed to save you money right off the bat. You can change the schedule in any way you wish to reflect your own personal lifestyle. If you work during the day, you can keep your temperature set low to minimize usage and when you will be returning home, a more comfortable temperature can kick in.More expensive touch screen models are more attractive by design and also have more functions. You can set a bunch of different schedules on these models and easily switch between them depending on what is going on in your home that day. Different schedules for work, weekends and vacation can all be utilized. Some utilize a remote control feature so you don't even have to leave your chair during the big game!Contact Air Assurancefor more information on the proper use of a programmable thermostat in your home.
