Digital thermostats are so 2017! This year, upgrade to a programmable thermostat instead! Here are all the benefits you’ll reap in doing so.
Reduce Energy Usage
A programmable thermostat allows you to predetermine the temperature of your home at all times. Lowering the heat when you are not home this winter can help reduce your overall energy consumption. And who wouldn’t love coming home to an already pre-heated house?
It is no secret that purchasing and installing a programmable thermostat comes with an upfront price tag. However, a programmable thermostat can save you money in the long run. DTE Energy states that setting your thermostat below 72 degrees when you are not home can save you 3% on your energy bill. This is a great option for people who work long hours or travel often.
At Blue Mountain, we’re concerned with making you and your family comfortable all year round. Installing a programmable thermostat in your home can help us do just that. We suggest setting the thermostat to a lower temperature while you are sleeping. Raising the temperature a half hour before getting up makes for a warmer winter morning.
