Set Your Thermostat for Maximum Comfort and Savings

A programmable thermostat makes taking control of your home comfort effortless, and it also can help you save some money. You can program it around your routine, so you can avoid paying to heat your home when you’re not around. With the unpredictable weather in West Palm Beach, a programmable thermostat can ensures your home’s temperature is exactly where you want it, when you want it there.

The best way to get the most benefits from your programmable thermostat is to take some time to analyze your family’s daily activities. By doing this, you can determine the most efficient way to program your thermostat so you don’t uselessly consume energy when your home is empty, but you also won’t have anyone coming home to a house that’s too hot or too cold.

Some people just take the time to adjust their thermostat before work and again when you come home, but why make more work for yourself when the programmable thermostat was created to simplify your life and make your home more comfortable? All you have to do is set it and forget it… and saving on energy is the icing on the cake.

You can help your system operate more efficiently by programming your thermostat for large periods of time and limit your temperature changes to 10 degrees or less. Doing this will save you money while keeping you comfortable in your home. It takes your system less energy to keep your home at a reasonably 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 basic functions as a traditional thermostat, but also offers a variety of preprogrammed settings to minimize your energy use and, therefore, potentially decrease your energy bills.

  • Preprogrammed settings often include designated options for when you are away. Using these settings automatically adjusts your temperature setting whether you’re away from West Palm Beach on vacation or only away from home for the day.
  • Some programmable thermostats have a feature to lock the thermostat to prevent kids from accidentally (or purposely) moving the temperature and potentially affecting your bill.
  • You should also know that setting the heat much warmer than you’d normally set it will not help your house warm up rapidly. Many people assume that cranking the heat up in a cold house will warm it up faster, but it doesn’t. And often they 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 a little money, a programmable thermostat is a great option.
