Programmable thermostats can be set to begin their cool-down well before you leave or go to bed and return to their regular temperature two or three hours before you wake up or return home. This saves energy while maintaining a comfortable home.
The location of your thermostat can affect your new system’s performance and efficiency. To operate properly, a digital thermostat must be on an interior wall away from direct sunlight, drafts, doorways, skylights, and windows.
Your new digital Wi-Fi thermostat should be located where natural room air currents (warm air rising, cool air sinking) occur. Furniture will block natural air movement in the room, so do not place pieces in front of or below your thermostat. Make sure your thermostat is conveniently located for programming.
Digital thermostats provide easy-to-use features including multiple setback settings, overrides, and adjustments for daylight savings time. When programming your thermostat, consider when you normally go to sleep and wake up. If you prefer to sleep at a cooler temperature during the winter, start the temperature setback a bit ahead of the time you actually go to bed. Also consider the schedules of others in the household. If there is a time during the day when the house is unoccupied for four hours or more, it makes sense to adjust the temperature accordingly during those periods.
You can easily save energy in the winter by setting the thermostat to 68°F while you’re awake and setting it lower while you’re asleep or away from home. By turning your thermostat back 10° to 15° for 8 hours, you can save 5% to 15% a year on your heating bill — a savings of as much as 1% for each degree if the setback period is eight hours long. In the summer, you can follow the same strategy with central air conditioning by keeping your house warmer than normal when you are away, and lowering the thermostat setting to 78°F (26°C) only when you are at home and need cooling. Programmable thermostats will avoid any discomfort by returning temperatures to normal before you wake or return home.
Wi-Fi enabled thermostats are a popular choice of modern consumers. The ability to control heating and cooling needs from remote locations has been an enjoyable convenience for our busy clients.
