How You Can Save with a Programmable Thermostat

7 day programmable thermostat

Did you know you could save money by simply setting your thermostat when you are asleep or away from home? You can do this automatically and easily by upgrading your home to a programmable thermostat!

By using a programmable thermostat, you can set your thermostat to turn off or turn higher/lower when you are away at work, or sleeping. A programmable thermostat can store and repeat multiple daily settings that can manually override without affecting the rest of the daily or weekly program.

By turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 degrees for 8 hours; you can save 5%-15% a year on your energy bill. In the summer, you can  keep your house at a higher temperature when you are away. Although you can adjust your thermostats manually, programmable thermostats will avoid any discomfort by returning temperatures to normal before you wake or return home.

A common misconception is that the systems works harder to warm or cool the home back to a comfortable temperature after the thermostat has been set back, resulting in little or no savings. This is incorrect because the lower the interior temperature is, the slower the heat loss. So the longer your house remains at the lower temperature, the more energy you save, because your house has lost less energy than it would have at the higher temperature.

At DelFera we highly recommend the Honeywell Programmable thermostats. They give you the flexibility to set programs for weekdays and another for the weekends.

  4. I had no idea that keeping your house at a lower temperature helps you save on the energy would have lost if it was a higher temperature. That changes up my whole thermostat dynamic in my home. I’ll have someone come check on my system just to be sure it is working fine and then I’ll try your method in order to lower my electric bill.
