How Would a Programmable Thermostat Benefit Me?

Programmable thermostats might not seem too exciting, but saving money definitely is. With recommended temperature settings, a digital thermostat can cut your energy bills by 10 percent a year. Programmable controls have been around for several decades, but 60 percent of homes still use non-programmable models. Whether or not you’re replacing your central HVAC system, now is the perfect time to upgrade your thermostat. Here are several options that will increase your home’s energy efficiency and help you reap the savings all year.

Specialty Programmable Thermostat for Heat Pumps

Did you know that sudden temperature adjustments can cause your heat pump to use more energy than necessary? To prevent excessive electric consumption, manufacturers have developed thermostats especially for these heating systems that are popular in Lafayette and surrounding parts of Louisiana. The thermostat tells your heat pump to warm your house gradually, which lowers energy use by preventing the electric resistance backup from running.

High-Efficiency System Controls

Thanks to technological advances, the right thermostat can help your heating and air conditioning system perform better. Communicative thermostats are easy to use, and they are compatible with conventional and high-efficiency heating and air conditioning products.

Some advanced controls are designed especially for regulating variable-speed compressors, air handlers and dual-heat systems. For example, Carrier’s Infinity® Touch thermostats communicate with multiple components to control temperature, humidity, indoor air quality and ventilation. Today, you can find programmable smart thermostats that can be adjusted from any Wi-Fi device and models that integrate with your home automation command center. In addition to the many varied features, such as filter-change reminders and one-touch home and away settings, these communicating thermostats can increase energy efficiency dramatically.

Because preset temperature adjustments lower your energy bills, a new thermostat will pay for itself quickly and put money back in your pocket. For more information about upgrading to a programmable thermostat, call Lee’s Air Conditioning at (337) 232-5337.
