If you are like a number of homeowners looking to cut the cost of your energy bills, you may have considered spending the money on a programmable thermostat. While most studies show that a programmable thermostat doesn’t save homeowners a lot of money on their energy bills, these same studies show that most people are not using them correctly.
Here are a few ways you can use your programmable thermostat to save money.
Ways Your Programmable Thermostat Can Save Money
Let’s be honest, waking up in a cold house is not fun. Running across the house to turn up the heat and then waiting for it to take the chill out before you get in the shower is time wasted. A programmable thermostat will take care of this issue for you. You will be able to stay in your warm bed while the thermostat adjusts the temperature to your preferences. Setting the thermostat to raise the temperature about thirty minutes before you get up will make getting out of bed easier.
When You Are Not Home
Have you ever wondered how much energy you waste while you are not home? The answer depends on if you manually change the thermostat before walking out the door. Most people do not change the thermostat before leaving for work. A programmable thermostat will allow you to set the temperature to automatically adjust during times you are not home. This is great for people who work long shift or leave town frequently.
When You Are Sleeping
If you are like most people, you climb into bed and snuggle under a few blankets in the winter months. If you are under all those blankets, do you really need your home to be a sweltering eighty degrees too? Probably not, but who wants to wake up to a cold house and wait for the heat to kick on after you run across the house to adjust it to a comfortable temperature? Now you can program your thermostat to turn down the temperature about an hour after you go to bed and turn it back up about an hour before you wake up.
