Save Money on Your Heating & Cooling Bills with a Programmable Thermostat
If you really want to save money on your heating and cooling costs, you should consider investing in one of our Carlsbad thermostats featuring programmable settings. You can save a lot of energy - and therefore money - by utilizing your thermostat properly.
Maybe you’ve heard this urban myth: your air conditioner works harder than usual to cool your home to a comfortable temperature, once your home has warmed up during the day when you’re gone. So you need to run the air conditioner during the day, even if your not a home. This is not true! Your house will lose it’s cool to the hot outdoor environment. Warmer inside temperatures will slow the cold air loss. So by keeping your home at a warmer temperature during the day, while you’re at work, you’ll save energy and money. Your air conditioner works the same to chill the air whether it has to cool the air 10° or 3°. It may cycle on and off more often, but that doesn’t mean it’s working harder. If you set your programmable thermostat to start the air conditioning 30 to 45 minutes before you’re scheduled to arrive home, your home will be nice and cool for you by the time you open the door. By keeping your house warmer than normal when you’re not home, and lowering the thermostat setting to 78°F when you are at home, you can save up to 15% a year on your cooling bills.
The same applies to your heating system. During the cold winter months, your house is always losing heat to the outside environment. Cooler indoor temperatures slow heat loss. So by using our Carlsbad thermostats to keep your home at this cooler temperature while you’re asleep or away during the day, you save a lot of energy and money. Just set your programmable thermostat to start warming the house 30 minutes before you wake up or return home. Then your house will be nice and toasty for you, no comfort sacrificed! By turning back your thermostat to 68°F when you’re awake and setting it even lower while you’re asleep or out of the house, you can save up to 15% a year on your heating bill.
What's more, with our programmable thermostats and control systems, you can obtain savings of as much as 1% for each degree, if the setback period is eight hours long.
