One of the major benefits of buying a new home is the new technology built into the home through both the construction process and use of advanced appliances or systems.
Programmable thermostats are one of those advances in technology that improve both home comfort and efficiency.
Managing your heat and air conditioning needs can be a huge help in the face of rising energy costs. Programmable thermostats allow you to set a heating and cooling schedule around your family's schedule. What does this mean? That your home doesn't need to heat or cool while no one is home but can still be comfortable when you need it to be. That it will adjust incrementally to ensure your night temperature is how you desire it. It means that while your home is unoccupied you aren't paying to heat or cool it.
Programmable thermostats can save you on average about $150 a year. Utilizing the technology
built into your new home can decrease your energy costs and increase your home comfort.
