Heating and Air Conditioning, we are ready to help you live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle while saving money by helping you to select and install the right programmable thermostat for your home.
How Programmable Thermostats Can Help
Programmable Thermostats help to reduce your energy consumption by allowing you to set your heating and cooling system to run only when you are there to enjoy it. To make this happen, the thermostat should be set to adjust the temperature in your home during key times of the day. These times may include:
- Wake-up - The thermostat would trigger your HVAC system to warm or cool your home shortly before the members of your household got out of bed in the morning.
- Work day - Your home’s heating and cooling system would remain relatively idle while the home was empty during the day.
- Return home - The thermostat would then return your home’s interior temperature to a comfortable level before you return home.
- Sleeping - The energy load on your system would be reduced again during sleeping hours.
To receive the most benefits from a programmable thermostat, models are available that can allow for different schedules for individual days of the week. This can allow for comfortable heating and cooling settings that differ from the work week to weekends. Your experts at Duggan’s One Hour
