Thermostats Can Help Conserve Energy in Your Home

Thermostats are an economical and easy way to tap into the benefits of green energy.

Programmable thermostats can be an easy way to save on utility bills while conserving energy. While some may seem confusing to operate, others are fairly easy to manage.

Some of the ways programmable or “smart” thermostats conserve energy are:

Managing air conditioning and furnace use.

Instead of spending all day kicking on and off to control your home’s temperature, programmable thermostats work for a short time to adjust the temperature they are set to.

Flexibility in obtaining what you want when you want it.

With programmable settings, you can maintain your home’s temperature and even change it according to your schedule and level of comfort. But be aware that not all “smart” thermostats allow you to directly program them. Some, such as the Nest, include ONLY a “learning” feature.

Save money every year.

ENERGY STAR averages show that savings can be in the hundreds of dollars annually with a smart thermostat.

Which thermostat should you choose? It makes a difference, as some of our customers have discovered when they purchased an expensive and highly marketed choice– only to discover it performing in unexpected ways and lacking the level of control they could have gotten for much less money.

When it comes to saving money and being smart about conserving energy, a programmable thermostat is a good option for your home. If you are ready to save money and energy, contact Comfort Monster today! Our friendly team of green energy experts is here to guide you and answer your questions.
