If you don’t have a programmable thermostat in your Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home, it’s time to upgrade. A programmable thermostat is convenient and will help you save energy in your home. You also have better control over the temperature, helping to keep you and your family more comfortable.

Save Energy

Programmable thermostats save power because they are more precise than traditional thermostats. Every degree costs energy, and twisting a dial is not exact. Most people end up trying to tweak the dial to create a comfortable home without having an accurate temperature reading. With a digital, programmable thermostat, you can be precise about the temperature settings and set it in advance to maximize your energy savings. 

Set it and Leave it

The main benefit of a programmable thermostat is being able to set it and not think about it anymore. If you prefer a warmer temperature during the day and for your home to be a little cooler at night, you can create that pattern and let the thermostat do the work. If you’re not home during the day, you can create settings to adjust the temperature to be comfortable when you’re home. You don’t waste energy by having the heat or AC on when you’re not home, but you also don’t have to walk into a stifling or freezing home. 

Control from Your Device

If you have a programmable thermostat that is a smart thermostat, you have even greater control over the temperature in your home. You can’t get more convenient than adjusting the temperature straight from your phone. Smart thermostats connect to your device, and you can control the temperature from anywhere you have data or WiFi. If you’re away and the temperature shifts suddenly, you can update your temperature to save energy. Instead of having one program setting, you can vary it to your schedule.
