If you’re still using an old thermostat in your Hagerstown, MD, home, you’re missing out on the many benefits that technology has brought to the HVAC industry. Using a manual thermostat today is akin to throwing money out the window. Here are three of the main benefits of installing a smart thermostat:
There are three types of programmable thermostats. One is digital, one is electromechanical and one is a combination of the two. You get the most features with a digital thermostat, including adjustments for daylight savings time, multiple setback settings and overrides.
Perfect Timing Control
A programmable thermostat allows you to have more control over your indoor temperature. It can be preset to turn on or off at specific times. For example, you can program it to turn on a half an hour before you arrive home. As a result, you’ll maximize energy savings without compromising your home comfort.
Resetting your thermostat for when you’re asleep or not at home can save you money on your heating and cooling expenses. A smart thermostat will learn your habits and adjust accordingly. It will change the temperature at specific times such as when you’re not at home, eating, working out or sleeping.
If you want to change the settings at any time, you can do it remotely with your smartphone. This means you can start heating or cooling your home when you leave work. You can also set it to turn off when you go on vacation and change the setting before you get home.
