Whether you live in Contra Costa or San Jose, Hayward, or any city in the Bay Area, a programmable thermostat is a good idea for several reasons. If you have a regular thermostat, like those that have been around for decades, think back on all of the times you’ve “tinkered” with it – turning the temperature up or down – turning the heat down a few notches before your family leaves for work/school for the day (which you may have forgotten to do a few times) – it can be a real hassle. A programmable thermostat does away with these problems, and offers many benefits to homeowners.
No more hassle. Imagine being able to adjust your thermostat setting for a week, a few days, or switching from heat to cool mode without ever touching it. It’s possible to operate these thermostats remotely using your smartphone, so you can turn the heat up a few degrees before you leave work to arrive at a warm, comfy home.
Wouldn’t you love to save on heating and cooling costs? Of course you would – everyone loves to save. Manually turning the heat or air up or down to adjust for your comfort, turning your system completely off and then turning the heat up to 80 degrees when you get home in an effort to warm it up fast (which doesn’t work, by the way) – all of these things make your system less energy efficient. A programmable thermostat will save you money, while enhancing comfort.
Better energy efficiency. Because you can have your heat automatically shut off when you aren’t home, you can improve energy efficiency. No more worrying when you forgot to adjust the thermostat or you need to be away from home for an extended period of time.
A programmable thermostat is truly a dream come true for homeowners in the San Francisco Bay Area. No having to remember to shut your system off or turn it up/down before you leave, no more coming in to an uncomfortable home, and savings on both utility costs and energy consumption!
