Did you know you can save money with a programmable thermostat? That’s right. A relatively small expense can save your hard-earned cash. By setting your programmable thermostat to raise or lower the temperature while you’re at work or on vacation, you aren’t needlessly over-cooling or heating your home when no one is there.
The folks at Energy Star® have some suggestions on the optimal temperature settings for each time of day. Now their idea of a comfortable heating or cooling temperature might not be the same as yours, but if you can raise the temperature on the AC a few degrees, or lower the temperature on the heat a few degrees, it can actually make a big difference. And you can lower or raise the temperature by quite a bit more during the hours that you are away from home.
As an authorized Carrier dealer for the Mobile, AL area, we install programmable thermostats with new HVAC systems. The newest models, compatible with the Infinity series, offer full color touch screens, Wi-Fi connections and a 5-day weather forecast for your convenience. Some programmable thermostats also provide system maintenance reminders, such as when to change the air filter.
If your HVAC system is in fine shape and you just want to replace an old manual thermostat with a programmable thermostat, that’s an easy do-it-yourself job. Just be sure to read all of the directions carefully and shut down electricity to the thermostat while you are replacing it.
