How Can a New Thermostat Save You Money?

New Thermostat

Many homeowners try their best to manage the costs of heating and cooling their homes, yet they fail to see the savings potential that a new thermostat presents. Technological advancements have given thermostats the ability to cool or heat your home in the most efficient way, and if your thermostat is more than 10 years old, there’s a good chance that replacing it will save you substantial money over time. 

Today’s programable thermostats are easier to use than those of years past, and they give you the ability to schedule set periods of heating or cooling time so that you don’t pay to control the climate of your home when no one is there to enjoy it. Most people who have a full time job spend about a third of their time outside of their homes. So, if you go to work for 8 hours a day, you can prevent your air conditioner or furnace from kicking on by setting the thermostat at a higher temperature. Then, you can program your system to turn on shortly before you arrive home from work so that you can enjoy walking into a perfectly, and efficiently, controlled climate. Using a programmable thermostat in this way will not only help to reduce your monthly utility bills, but the drop in usage will also allow you to enjoy more years of comfort without having to purchase a new air conditioner or furnace.

Some of today’s higher end thermostats can be integrated with your computer or mobile device so that you can make real time changes in your temperature settings. Many people combine these smart thermostats with a zone control heating system that allows them to assign separate temperature settings throughout their homes from one app on their mobile or desktop device. 

Whether you make a small upgrade to a more modern thermostat, or you want to make a big investment in today’s most advanced climate control technology, upgrading your thermostat can save you a substantial amount of money throughout the years.
