Can Changing Thermostat Settings During the Day Really Save Money?

These days, many programmable thermostats are available. These handy devices let you set differing temperature controls based on the time of day or night. But the question remains: Can changing your thermostat setting during the day really save you money?

The answer is, yes. Here, we’ll explore how changing your thermostat settings when you’re out of the house can save you significant money over the long term.

Reasons to Turn Down Your Thermostat

Some people suggest that turning your thermostat setting down during the day and reheating your home when you return drives up your energy bill. However, this could not be further from the truth.

Whenever you turn your thermostat setting down by 1 degree for eight hours, you consume 1 percent less energy than you would have otherwise. In other words, if you turn your home’s temperature down by 10 degrees for the eight hours you’re out of the house, you could reduce your energy usage by 10 percent.

Programmable Thermostats

One of the biggest reasons homeowners don’t follow simple thermostat setting adjustments is because it can be inconvenient when they’re in a hurry. However, a programmable thermostat takes the hassle out of resetting your home’s temperature when you’re leaving for the day.

A programmable thermostat lets you tell your thermostat to turn down the heat for a certain period each day; this is particularly convenient so that you can come home to an already heated house when your return home for the evening.

One of the best ways to ensure that you’re changing your thermostat setting based on your usage is by installing a programmable thermostat. 1st Choice Air Solutions can simply and efficiently install a programmable thermostat in your home.
