Does Programming My Thermostat Increase My Home’s Cooling Efficiency?

In an effort to spend less money on air conditioning this summer, it’s important not to forget about the potential in accessories/upgrades for your cooling system. Programmable thermostats are among the hottest products to help increase efficiency. Here’s how they work to keep you cool for less money:

Maintain the Temperature

Inconsistencies in temperature are one of the biggest reasons for excessive energy use when it comes to cooling your home. When the AC has to work overtime to compensate for warm areas and cool areas, it’s going to show on your utility bill. A programmable thermostat allows you to more accurately control cooling in your home based on your use, lifestyle, and comfort preferences.

Controlling Your Energy Use with HVAC Accessories/Upgrades

One of the coolest things about a digital programmable thermostat is that you can track and control your energy use. Not only can you customize your cooling by the week, day, and hour, you can control it remotely with a WiFi connection and an app on your smartphone or computer. Some of the new technology also provides regular energy use reports so you can see what your energy consumption looks like and adjust accordingly.

Simplify Your Life by Simplifying Your Cooling

Programmable thermostats used to be intimidating and hard to use. That’s no longer the case. As technology has improved, so has the user interface. Most have touch-screen technology, simple and intuitive programming features, and easy operation. The easier it is to use your thermostat, the easier it will be for you to save money and make your house more consistently comfortable.

There’s no reason to wait when you’re looking for ways to increase your energy efficiency. A programmable thermostat is the easiest, and one of the most effective places to start.

The technician let me know what needed to be done, and we agreed what the cost would be. When he finished the work, he phoned back and told me he was able to use a less expensive freon and was able to adjust the bill. Very pleased with the work and will use them at another home I own.
