3 Benefits of a Programmable Thermostat, Butler, Arkansas

A programmable thermostat automatically adjusts your home's temperature depending on the time of day and according to your preferences.  For example, during the summer, you’ll likely need more cooling when the sun is out than at night. Find out why you should talk to an HVAC technician about installing a programmable thermostat below.

3 Reasons to Get a Programmable Thermostat

1. Increased Efficiency

Adjusting your HVAC system up and down throughout the day decreases its efficiency, as it has to work harder to keep up with varying temperatures. A programmable thermostat allows for consistent heating and cooling, which leads to less wear and tear and curbs its environmental impact and wastefulness. 

2. Decreased Utility Costs

The same goes for increasing temperatures in the summer. A programmable thermostat can automatically make these changes for you so you won’t have to remind yourself daily. 

3. More Convenience

Programmable thermostats don't just allow for increased efficiency and lower utility costs; they also enhance everyday convenience. If you go away on a summer vacation, for example, you can program your thermostat to keep cooling to a minimum. Newer models even allow for remote controlling, so you can prepare the temperature of your home for when you get home.
