What Are Programmable Thermostats?
Also referred to as clock thermostats or setback thermostats, programmable thermostats automatically adjust your indoor temperature based on settings you have programmed to take place at a specific time.
Not only can programmable thermostats be set to adjust the temperature during different times of the day, but they can also be set to pinpoint certain areas of the building that need heating or cooling. Once the thermostat is programmed, the settings stay the same until manually changed.
What Are the Benefits?
The main benefit of installing a programmable thermostat is the money it helps save on heating and cooling costs. A commercial building can save over $150-$300 a year with a programmable thermostat.
Take a look at the other benefits:
- Comfort control: Programmable thermostats make it easier to accommodate the needs of an individual’s comfort zone by automatically adjusting the temperatures accordingly.
- Easy synchronization: The technical capabilities of programmable thermostats allow users to synchronize them with alarm systems, phones, tablets, and other mobile devices.
- Remote access: With programmable thermostats, users can adjust different temperatures for different hours of the day and different days of the week, even if they’re away from home.
When Is Repair or Replacement Necessary?
Do you notice problems with your indoor temperature? Here are some signs that a programmable thermostat may need to be repaired or replaced:
- Inconsistent temperature
- System turns on and off repeatedly
- Dirt and dust accumulating in the thermostat
- System fails to turn on at all
Failure to maintain your programmable thermostat or repair it when needed can cause further damage to the device and possibly your air conditioning and heating system as well. What starts off as a simple problem may turn into major damage, resulting in higher repair costs.
