Set Your Thermostat for Maximum Comfort and Savings

A programmable thermostat makes managing your home comfort simple, plus it can help you save some money. You can program it around your schedule, so won’t have to pay to heat your home when you’re away. With the ever-changing weather in Murrieta, a programmable thermostat can ensures your home’s temperature is exactly where you want it, when you want it there.

The best way to get the most benefits from your programmable thermostat is to take some time to analyze your family’s schedule. Once you do this, you can plan the best way to program your thermostat so you don’t uselessly consume energy when your home is empty, but you can avoid anyone coming home to a house that’s too hot or too cold.

Some people just take the time to adjust their thermostat before and after work, but why needlessly do all this work when the programmable thermostat was created to make your life easier and your home more comfortable? All you have to do is set it and forget it… and saving on energy makes it even better.

In order to help your system operate more efficiently, program your thermostat for large periods of time and limit your temperature changes to 10 degrees or less. This will save you money and keep you comfortable in your home. Your system will use less energy when you keep your home at a fairly constant temperature than it does to turn it on when you get home and try to heat a cold house.

A programmable thermostat operates with the same basic functions as a traditional thermostat, but also features a variety of preprogrammed settings to minimize your energy use and, therefore, potentially cut your energy bills.

  • Preprogrammed settings often include specific options for when you are away. Using these settings automatically lowers your temperature setting whether you’re away from Murrieta on vacation or only away from home for the day.
  • Some programmable thermostats have a feature to lock the thermostat to keep kids from accidentally (or purposely) changing the temperature and potentially affecting your bill.
  • You should also know that turning up the heat much warmer than you’d normally set it will not help your house warm up more quickly. Many people assume that cranking the heat up in a cold house will warm it up faster, but it doesn’t. And often they forget to turn it back down, making the house uncomfortably warm and wasting energy.

When you want to ensure your home is always comfortable and would be happy to save some money, a programmable thermostat is a great option.
