Using your programmable thermostat correctly can save you energy costs and future heater or air conditioner repairs. Your thermostat controls when your HVAC units turn on and off, so programming it to your family’s schedule can help reduce and regulate your energy use. This will equal savings and environmental benefits. Watch the video to learn more about using your programmable thermostat and HVAC units near Annapolis.
Once you choose the right thermostat, consider your family’s schedule. Program the thermostat to respond to when you sleep, wake up, leave for work, and arrive home.
Never program the thermostat to raise or lower significantly during the summer or winter; this makes your heating and air conditioning units work overtime and will eventually cost you more money. Program your thermostat to regulate the temperature within a few degrees of your optimal temperature to save on energy.
