Buy a new air conditioning system and we’ll throw in a programmable thermostat for free. Let us build your house, and we’ll be sure to include a thermostat you can program. Considering the fact that heating and cooling systems tend to be energy hogs, the trend is no surprise. Anything that helps save money is a good selling point.

And programmable thermostats are good at doing that.  In fact, that’s probably the thing they’re best known for – trimming utility bills and saving money. Being able to pre-set different temperature levels into them and not having to physically be there or rely on your memory to adjust them, can help you see smaller utility bills. Combine these kinds of thermostats with other recommended ways to save energy, and you can see some pretty decent savings throughout the year.

But smaller utility bills aren’t the only advantage programmable thermostats have. There are others; one being the fact that they are environmentally friendly. How are they more environmentally friendly than other thermostats? By freeing you from the physical constraints of their competitors (such as needing to be there and having to remember to do it), you’re more likely to make use of them – meaning when you’re sleeping or out of the house, you’re more likely to adjust the temperature rather than leaving it where it is. Varying the temperature result in less energy use and therefore a reduced need for energy production. That fact and the fact that they contain no mercury both work to make programmable thermostats the eco-friendly choice.

In addition to being eco-friendly and saving you money, programmable thermostats also do a better job of keeping your house in the comfort zone. Since programmable thermostats allow you to set a time along with a particular temperature, there’s no more waking up to a cold house or coming home from work to a hot one in the name of saving money. Get up at 5:30? You can program the thermostat to start warming the house at 5:00. Get home from work at 7:00? You can set it to turn on the air conditioning at 6:30. Before those times? You’re still saving money.

When it comes right down to it, a programmable thermostat is something everyone should consider installing. After all, who doesn’t like to save money and help the environment – especially if they don’t have to sacrifice comfort to do it?
