3 Reasons Why You Should Have A Programmable Thermostat

February 19, 2019 | Blog

When it comes to the cost of your monthly energy bill, you have heating and cooling of your home to thank for a large portion of the bill. Heating or cooling an entire home is not cheap, especially if your HVAC system is working to maintain that temperature all day long. This is why the introduction of programmable thermostats has been so important for energy efficiency. Here are three reasons why you should have a programmable thermostat.

Save Money

As mentioned previously, with a non-programmable thermostat your home is working to constantly cool/ heat your home 24/7. This can be frustrating at times you are not home – for example, at work, on vacation, running errands, etc. By being able to program your desired temperatures to run only when you need them, you could save up to 30% on your monthly electricity bill.


Let’s say you have already been on top of adjusting your thermostat with a non-programmable unit. Now imagine a life where you can break free of the habit of adjusting the thermostat every time you leave, come home, go to bed or wake up. With a programmable thermostat, you can set desired temperatures with desired times. Therefore, your unit will automatically adjust without you having to give it a second, third or even fourth thought.

Increase Longevity of Your HVAC System

In addition to it being costly, running your AC system on full blast all day isn’t good for your unit’s overall health. Being able to program specific hours of the day that your unit gets to “take a break” will increase the overall lifespan of your unit, saving your money in the long run.
