What does a programmable thermostat do?

Advantages To Having a Digital Setback Thermostat

As the seasons go so do our utility bills. When the summer gets here most people are paying out of their savings account just to keep their houses cool. The fact of the matter is that most homes are not attuned to stay cool when it’s hot out or stay hot when it’s cold out. There are little ways that we can save money on our utility bills–particularly when it comes to keeping our home cool. Most houses are fitted with old single setting thermostats but there are better options out there: digital setback thermostats.

A digital setback thermostat is a thermostat with a digital interface that allows the user to program times for it to come on and off. This is a very simple idea but one that completely revolutionizes the way that you’ll be paying for your utilities. So let’s say that you work outside of your home for 8 to 10 hours a day. Being gone all of those hours means that you would be wasting money by keeping your heat or air condition running while the house is empty. With a digital setback thermostat you can program it to turn off for those 8 to 10 hours of your time away. You can set it to turn off when you leave and then to turn off a little bit before you get home. It will be like your thermostat was never shut off because you will never have to experience the time in between heating and cooling.

This digital setback thermostat is an affordable way to attack your utility bills at their source. By hiring a professional HVAC company to come in and install one you are setting yourself to save money on your utility bills for many years into the future. A digital setback thermostat can quickly pay itself off in the months of utility bills to come and it will only keep you more and more efficient in the years to come.
