When it comes to making your home energy efficient, there are tons of things that can help. Whether it be weather stripping your home or cleaning your air ducts, this little bit of work can make a big difference in the long run. One of the ways that the experts at North Central Florida Heating and Air find to be most effective when it comes to making a home energy efficient is installing a programmable thermostat in your home. If you don’t think that your thermostat could honestly make a difference, you’re in for a treat.
The main way that programmable thermostats differ from the rest is that you have the ability to set the ideal temperature of your home, throughout the day, and the thermostat will trigger your HVAC as needed. In our last blog, we spoke about about how the ideal temperature of your home should differ throughout the day in order to get maximum comfort and for energy efficiency. We’ve also touched on how the time of day that you’re using your system can make a difference on your electric bill. Rather than constantly checking and worrying about the time of day you’re switching your heat and air system on and off, purchase a programmable thermostat and have it do the work for you.
If your family is out of the house relatively early in the morning, you can set your programmable thermostat to reach that ideal room temperature once the off peak hours hit, allow for your home to reach and hold that temperature throughout the off peak, and then have your thermostat shut off once the on peak hours hit. From there it can warm your house back up around 6, and cool off again for the night to restart the cycle. All without you having to worry about constantly changing the temperature throughout the day.
