1. Hassle-Free HVAC
Imagine never having to worry about adjusting the thermostat. Sounds dreamy, right? Fortunately, today’s thermostat technology has made this possible.
With many programmable thermostats, you can have different heating/cooling settings for different times of the day and days of the week–based entirely on your family’s schedule.
For instance, think of how wonderful it will be to come home from work in the heat of the day and enter a cool house because the air conditioner came on before you even arrived. Similarly, you can also adjust your thermostat to begin heating your home just in time to wake up and put on a warm cup of coffee.
2. Money in the Bank
When you’re tight on cash, utilities are probably one of the first places you look to cut back. Heating and cooling your home can be costly, which is why homeowners are encouraged to adjust their thermostat based on the time of day and when you are home vs. away.
But let’s be honest, how often will you remember to manually adjust thermostat before you run out the door to work?
Instead of relying on your memory to adjust the thermostat, a programmable thermostat allows you to program your settings once and forget all about it. By automating this process, you can ensure that you are reducing your energy costs and saving money daily.
3. Energy Efficiency All Day, Everyday
Setting your thermostat to produce less AC or heat when you’re out means your home uses up less energy resources.

Plus, programmable thermostat do not use mercury like many of the older thermostats, and thus is more eco-friendly.
4. Room-to-Room Comfort
What do you do if one person likes their room colder than another person? If your home is like most households, the answer is probably bicker over the indoor temperature or having to keep changing the temperature back.
However, instead of waging a thermostat war in your home, a programmable thermostat allows you to accommodate for different temperature settings by offering as many as 8 different climate control zones, giving you the ability to heat and cool only the rooms you want to and when you want to. So no more bickering and no more wasted heating and cooling.
