Do you have a programmable thermostat?

Monday, February 1, 2010 by Justin Randall
Having a programmable thermostat installed in your home is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to save energy and save money.  

Some estimates predict that a programmable thermostat can save you up to 30% on your monthly energy bills.  The idea behind a programmable thermostat is that you’re only heating or cooling your home when it needs to be.  When you’re gone for the day at work, or sleeping you set temperature higher or lower so you’re not wasting energy conditioning an empty house.  You then set it so when you return or wake up your house is comfortable.  

Aprilaire’s newest programmable thermostat, the 8400 series, offers additional benefits.  It has the ability to report the outdoor temperature as well as cycle your HVAC fan for air cleaning.

The best part about a programmable thermostat is that once you have it set up for your needs you really never have to mess around with it.  You can set it and forget it and you will save energy automatically.

Since this is just me and my husband's constant temperature control, we do not have much, but we keep the heat and air conditioning in 67 to 78. When the weather began to flip-flop thing, we do not open one or the other, until it received a degree or two beyond that range. Yes, sometimes you begin a day's trousers, wear long-sleeved shirts, socks and sport shirts, trousers and T shirt just ended, but it is certainly better than a crazy electricity!thermostat

Reminders like this are a very good idea. We don't alwasy remember these once-a-year steps. Easy to follow, and avoids operational problems. Not only keeps us comfortable a home, it keeps customers happy with Aprilaire.

Thank you.
