However, we won’t blame you if you still need a little more convincing of why you should buy a programmable thermostat. After all… it’s definitely not the most exciting purchase you can make unless you’re as HVAC-obsessed as the team here at Hoosier Indoor Air. So – here are three great reasons why a programmable thermostat should be on your list of things to buy this spring!
3 Great Reasons to Buy a Programmable Thermostat
Ease of Use
We understand that there is a certain comfort and familiarity in that ol’ dial thermostat your house came with. However, modern programmable thermostats are just as easy to use and figure out – and are loaded with quality of life improvements that you never knew you needed. For instance:
- Touch screen displays,
- On-board diagnostics and warnings
- WiFi-connectivity (more on that below!),
- Weather reports,
- Automated service reminders,
- and everything else you need to know and see is right there on the screen!
Don’t be intimidated by the additional features – they’ll make your life easier and more comfortable.
Energy (which means $$$) Savings
As mentioned in our last blog, programmable thermostats can be set to autopilot mode, which will manage your HVAC system automatically over the course of the day, month, and year. However – if you want to take it a step further, programmable thermostats can be tasked to learn your schedule and heating/cooling needs. For example – a smart thermostat can learn to increase the temperature during the day when you’re active, and cool off during night time when you’re getting to bed – which will help you to sleep better (while saving you money!). Who doesn’t love the idea of saving money while you sleep?
Modern Thermostat, Modern Tech
It’s 2022, and everything can be connected to your computer and smartphone… even your thermostat! Programmable thermostats are wifi connected, and you can adjust, monitor, or be alerted by them anywhere in the world.
If you’ve ever forgotten to set the AC to vacation mode before skipping town, or if you’ve ever come back to a home that is frozen solid because your heater failed 20 minutes after you left for the week, you’ll love this feature immediately.
Never worry about the temperature of your home when you’re not at home again!
