Set Your Thermostat for Maximum Comfort and Savings

A programmable thermostat makes managing your home comfort effortless, while helping you save some money. This thermostat can be programmed around your schedule, so you can minimize how much you’re paying to heat your home when you’re not around. With the unpredictable weather in Carson City, a programmable thermostat can ensures your home’s temperature is exactly where you want it, when you want it there.

The best way to maximize the benefits of your programmable thermostat is to take some time to analyze your family’s schedule. By doing this, you can determine the best way to program your thermostat so you don’t uselessly consume energy when no one is home, but you also won’t have anyone coming home to a house that’s uncomfortable because it’s too hot or too cold.

You could try to remember to adjust your thermostat before and after work, but why needlessly do all this work when the programmable thermostat was created to simplify your life and make your home more comfortable? Simply set it and forget it… and saving on energy is the icing on the cake.

For the most efficient system operation, program your thermostat for large periods of time and limit your temperature changes to 10 degrees or less. Doing this will save you money and keep you comfortable in your home. Many people don’t realize that it takes your system less energy to keep your home at a relatively constant temperature than it does to turn it on when you get home and try to heat a cold house.

A programmable thermostat operates with the same essential functions as a traditional thermostat, but also offers a variety of preprogrammed settings to minimize your energy utilization and, therefore, potentially decrease your energy bills.

  • Preprogrammed settings often include specific options for when you are away. Using these settings will automatically lower your temperature setting whether you’re away from Carson City on vacation or just away from home for the day.
  • Some programmable thermostats allow you to lock the thermostat to prevent kids from accidentally (or purposely) changing the temperature and potentially raising your bill.
  • You should also know that bumping up the heat much warmer than you’d normally set it will not help your house warm up faster. Many people assume that cranking the heat up in a cold house will warm it up faster, but it doesn’t. And they’ll forget to turn it back down, making the house uncomfortably warm and wasting energy.

When you want to ensure your home is always comfortable and would like to save your money, a programmable thermostat is a great option.
