A programmable thermostat is a simple to install replacement for your old thermostat that allows your heating and air-conditioning (HVAC) to automatically accommodate your schedule. It prevents your HVAC system from working really hard when no one is home to enjoy the comfort. It does this by allowing you to program time spans when you don’t need the house to be comfortable, like when you are at work.

The programmable thermostat will slowly start to increase the temperature in the winter (or decrease the temperature in the summer) before it is scheduled to be at the ideal temperature.

Your programmable thermostat should allow manual overrides. When the next time setting is reached, it will automatically go back to operate on its settings. Many programmable thermostats have a vacation setting or hold setting that overrides the daily settings until you come home.

There are hundreds of ways that you can customize your home to make it more energy efficient. By installing advanced tech items in your home, for example, you can achieve serious savings on your utility bills every month. Consider that the average homeowner spends about $2,200 dollars on heating and cooling every year, and yet a basic programmable thermostat can be picked up at the local hardware or home-improvement store for around $25.

You can even use your Smartphone to operate it whenever you need to make changes. Just think when you get into your car to head home you can use your Smartphone to turn up the heat or AC so your comfortable when you get home
