Tips How to Use a Programmable Thermostat Properly from ASAP Heating & Air Conditioning



The proper use of a programmable thermostat and pre-programmed settings can save you about $180 every year in energy costs, according to Energystar.com.
How do you set up one properly?

First, you need to decide which model is best for your schedule and how often you are away from home .Then decide which of the three different models best fits your schedule:

7-day models are best if your daily schedule tends to change; for example, if children are at home earlier on some days. These models give you the most flexibility and let you set different programs for different days—usually with four possible temperature periods per day.

5+2-day models use the same schedule every weekday, and another for weekends.

Finally, 5-1-1 models are best if you tend to keep one schedule Monday through Friday and another schedule on Saturdays and Sundays.
