Installing a programmable thermostat is one of the easiest ways to save money on your energy bills each month. By controlling when your system runs and when it shuts down, you can reduce energy waste and keep your home comfortable. Look for these three features when you decide on the kind of programmable thermostat to install in your Clearwater home:
- Adaptive or smart recovery: This feature on programmable thermostats allows you to set a temperature for a specific time. The thermostat will determine how far ahead of that time it needs to turn the system back on. This means that your house will always be the right temperature when you get home. You will not have to wait for the air conditioning to kick in while you’re sitting in an uncomfortable home. This feature is helpful in the extreme months of both winter and summer.
- Change filter warning: Your programmable thermostats shouldn’t just save energy by shutting down. It should also help ensure that your airflow system stays efficient with a change-filter warning. This will indicate when you need to replace your filter, a task that often slips the mind without a reminder. This helps your system last longer over the years.
- Humidity monitoring and control system: A programmable thermostat should control not only the temperature, but also the humidity. A house that is too humid can invite mold. This will significantly reduce the quality of air in your home and can create a health hazard.
