Many homeowners still us the knob-style mechanics thermostat that came with their house. While it does a decent job of keeping you comfortable, it doesn’t necessarily do so as efficiently as possible, wasting your money.
Traditional Mechanical thermostats use a bi-metal control to approximate temperatures. When you set the thermostat to 65, the room might reach 65 but then continues to heat for an extended period of time, wasting energy. We call this a temperature swing.
Electronic thermostats use much more accurate electronic sensing. Set the stat to 65 and you get 65 and no more.
Over the course of the year, that makes a huge difference.
By staying at that constant temperature regularly will save you money.
Now consider the benefits of a Programmable Electronic Thermostat:
Upgrading to a fully programmable 7-day thermostat means you can create a schedule that follows your family’s routine, and keeps the temperature warm while you’re there, but eases up on the energy usage when you’re not home. Simply put, you spend less time adjusting your thermostat and more time feeling comfortable, all while saving money.
