Automate Your Energy Savings with a Programmable Thermostat

Everybody can use a little extra savings when it comes to their home comfort! One of the easiest ways to lower your monthly energy bills is by upgrading your outdated on/off thermostats to programmable thermostats. Using a programmable thermostat to manage your home’s temperature will automate energy savings by customizing a schedule that adapts to your family's routine. 


You no longer have to waste energy on heating/cooling your home while you're away or come back to uncomfortable indoor temperatures to save on energy costs. They are easy to use, easy to program, and easy to read!


The U.S. Energy Star® program released these tips to maximize energy savings with your programmable thermostat.


  • Install your thermostat away from heating or cooling registers, appliances, lighting, doorways, skylights, windows, and areas that receive direct sunlight or drafts.


  • Keep the thermostat set at energy-saving temperatures for long periods of time, such as during the day when people are away from the home, and throughout the night.


  • If you are going away on vacation, set the "hold" button at a constant energy-saving temperature. 


  • Try not to override the pre-programmed settings. This can result in increased energy usage and costs.


  • Choose the model that best meets your needs. Thermostats come with either 7-day, 5+2-day, or 5-1-1-day programming capacity.
