A programmable thermostat in your Jacksonville Beach, Florida, home can be a game-changer. It can turn down the heater or air conditioner automatically when you usually leave or go to sleep. Then, it can bring your home back to a comfortable temperature about half an hour before you come home or wake up.
You can set a different schedule for weekdays and weekends with some devices, and others offer a different schedule for every day of the week. You can even control some models wirelessly from your computer or smartphone. A programmable thermostat can also save energy, remind you to maintain your HVAC system, and keep you comfortable.
A programmable thermostat keeps you from forgetting to turn down your heater or air conditioner every time you leave your home or go to sleep. That way, you won’t have to waste energy heating or cooling your home when you don’t have to, and the temperature will still feel constant. Some devices can even learn your schedules and temperature preferences over time.
Many programmable thermostats can email, text, or call you when you need to have your HVAC system maintained by a professional or to change its air filter. Some have airflow monitors, and they can let you know if your system isn’t working efficiently or if you need to change your air filter to save energy. That way, forgetting maintenance won’t shorten your HVAC system’s life or lead to high utility bills.
Many programmable thermostats work with zoning systems to set different temperatures in different areas, or zones, in your home. You won’t have to heat or cool unoccupied areas, and your family members can set temperatures that will be comfortable for them in their rooms. Some models also come with password protection so kids and guests won’t change your family’s settings.
