The Sleek New Look of Tomorrow’s Thermostats
Many homes and offices in Florida have old-fashioned1990’s thermostats installed in them. These thermostats are recognizable by their white, bulky, rectangular appearance. Not only are they ugly, but they are inefficient, too! Many of the programmable thermostats out today resemble a smartphone or small tablet; They definitely look better hanging on your wall…
Another Reason Why Programmable Thermostats are the Bees Knees are Becuase of the Savings!
Perhaps the most important benefit of converting to a programmable thermostat is primarily the money you will save. Many studies have been conducted over the years and what they all have concluded is that the average savings by switching is 20% annually. That translates to about $500 per year! What makes this thermostat so valuable is a feature called “smart setback.”
This setting allows you to set the thermostat for a specific temperature for a certain span of time. For example, if you will be gone from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday you may set your programmable thermostat to be 7 to 10 degrees higher during that time frame. Another dollar saver you may want to consider is programming your thermostat to a couple degrees higher than normal while you are sleeping and it is cooler outside.
