A programmable thermostat refers to a thermostat that is designed such that it can adjust the temperature according to a series of programmed settings that usually take effect at different times of the day. The other name of programmable thermostats is clock thermostats or setback thermostats.
Benefits that can be realized from using a programmable thermostat
Sometimes whenever the reduced amount of cooling or heating is not objectionable. During the cooling season, it is set to allow the temperature on the house to go down when the house is not actually occupied. This is usually during the day as well as at night when everybody has gone to bed. During this time, it re-heats the house moments before the occupants arrive in the evening; or rather before they wake up in the morning. Many people like sleeping when a room is a bit cool. The temperature differential between the interior and the exterior of a house will actually be greatest during a cold winter night. Thus minimizing energy losses.
When it is cold, it usually used in homes to allow the temperature in the house to go high during the day when everybody will be away from home working. It may then be set to turn on the air conditioning so that when the occupants of the home resume from work; they can find the house with cool temperatures. In addition, it will have saved air conditioning energy during the peak outdoor temperatures.
The other benefit is that whenever you reduce your home energy use, you also reduce your carbon footprint. Systems run less often when controlled by a programmable thermostat. Thereby undergoing less wear and tear. Thus lasting for longer. This goes a long way in delaying expensive repairs and also replacement while also lengthening the lifetime of key unit components.
