Programmable thermostats are standard in most homes and businesses today, but older dwellings and workplaces may still be operating manual thermostats. Your old manual thermostat – even though it still functions – is costing you quite a bit of money. Upgrading to a programmable thermostat will pay for itself in just a short period, thanks to the energy savings it generates!

If you’re still attached to your manual stat, here are a few convincing reasons to make the switch!

Save energy (and cash) with a programmable thermostat

Setting temperatures back 8 to 10 degrees over a period of 8 hours or more can generate energy savings of up to 10 percent over the course of a year! While a temperature adjustment of that magnitude may not be comfortable when your home or your business is occupied, overnight and while the building is unoccupied are times where energy can be saved without sacrificing comfort.

Program temperature setbacks while your family sleeps or is gone during the day, and while your workplace is closed. Your thermostat will make the switch automatically each day, saving you money. Programmable thermostats are available with a range of scheduling capabilities, allowing for different settings on the weekends, throughout the week, or all 7 days!

Automatic temperature adjustments

Don’t waste energy and pay more money to heat or cool an empty home or commercial building just because you don’t want to come home to an uncomfortable environment! Your programmable thermostat will adjust temperatures at the right time each day – walk in to a comfortable environment, so you don’t have to keep your coat on while the house heats up. Set temperatures to adjust just 15 minutes before workers or your family will arrive for minimal energy waste and maximized indoor comfort.
