Why do we need to upgrade our thermostats? What are the benefits that we can acquire if we do so? How does a programmable thermostat help us save a lot? As we all know, thermostats have a very important role in our HVAC system. Aside from regulating the temperature, it also maintains it to our desired set-point.

Upgrading our thermostats do not only help us save on energy bills, but it also increases the efficiency of our HVAC system. Upgrading our thermostats will give us the following benefits:

 

Compatible with Zoning System

Zoning System allows you to set your temperatures at different sections of your house according to your needs or occupancy. If you have a zoning system installed, it is more efficient with programmable thermostats and is compatible with it. Together with the new thermostat, the zoning system will allow you to gain more control on your home’s climate.

 

Convenient Access to Data

Advanced models of thermostats will provide you with important information like system alerts, important reminders, and a lot more.  Aside from those alerts, you can easily access programmable thermostats using your mobile app so you can have full control over it wherever you are! Older units will only be able to provide you with the temperature information or whether it is turned on or off.

 

Smart Automation

Another interesting feature of modern thermostats is that they do not limit frequent adjustments of temperature or turn it on and off. They have a smart automation feature which allows them to automatically shift temperatures and can be used with preset timed settings. Some programmable thermostats even have a “hold” feature in them which is especially useful when you are on vacation.

 

Reduce Your Energy Costs

A programmable thermostat allows you to maximize your savings. At every one degree that you change in your thermostat, you save 2 percent of your energy bill. Since it has the ability to monitor indoor and outdoor temperatures, they can manage your comfort and energy usage better.

 

Environment- Friendly

Aside from the fact that it helps make our lives become easier, a programmable thermostat also helps the environment. It does not use mercury, making it non-toxic and less harmful to both our health and environmental health. Apart from that, since it has the ability to reduce energy usage, you are able to help conserve energy.

Overall, upgrading to programmable thermostats not only makes your life convenient, but it also helps a great deal in helping you save more by reducing your energy costs. With a programmable thermostat, you can go anywhere you want worry-free. Most of all, you get to enjoy life and at the same time save your environment.
