If your family is like many other American families, you’re watching your spending a little more closely these days. But that doesn’t mean you want to do without the things that you’ve always enjoyed, including your much-needed yearly getaway. Finding ways to lower your utility bills can help you have money for your trip and even come home with a little leftover cash. Consider a programmable thermostat.
A programmable thermostats allows you to set your indoor temperature wherever you want it for different days and times. When you’re going to be away on vacation, you can eliminate the overuse of your heating and cooling equipment to keep your home at its normal comfort level. But you don’t have to turn it off, either. You can run the HVAC system at a minimum while you are gone and set it return to normal operation shortly before you arrive home. If you have pets that you’re leaving at home, you can rest assured that they will be safe and comfortable while you’re gone.
If you are upgrading an older thermostat to a new programmable thermostat, you can choose from a number of models. There’s a unit for every lifestyle, and they all come conveniently pre-programmed with settings that will save on energy consumption. You can always change these settings to what you want them to be, as well. And you can change them as often or as little as you would like. There are push-button units, as well as touch screen-models, depending on what works for you and how much you would like to spend.
