Non-Energy Benefits of Programmable Thermostats
Return to Non-Energy Benefits index
Programmable thermostats can help keep your home more comfortable.
Most people with standard thermostats turn them off at night or when away from home. With programmable units, the furnace can be turned on shortly before you wake up in the morning or return to your home, so that you don't have to wait for your house to reach the desired temperature. They can also be set back to cost-saving temperatures while you're away from home, protecting plants or pets while saving energy.
