Prgrammable Thermostats

Along with enjoying just the right temperature,comfort is also about using technology to make informed energy decisions to reduce costs and help the environment.According to the U.S Department of energy,the average household spends more than $2,200 a year on energy bills nearly  half of which goes to heating and cooling.



Considering that people around the world are using more energy than ever before, and that worldwide energy usage could increase as much as 50 percent by 2030, cutting energy use in every home can make a major impact — both on the environment and our wallets.

Usually when you think about conserving, you also think about needing to give something up. When it comes to your home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, however, advanced technology available right now allows you to enjoy energy savings without giving up comfort. By using this advanced technology — programmable thermostats — you can save about $180 a year on your utility bill while still enjoying the preferred temperature in your home.*

Programmable thermostats are the key to achieving efficient and energy-saving operation of your home’s HVAC system. Offering set-it-and-forget-it programming, programmable thermostats make energy savings automatic. Precise control delivers the comfortable temperature you want while using the energy most efficiently. Plus, the precise temperature control saves wear and tear on high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment through proper cycling, helping to reduce maintenance and equipment replacement costs.

Simply put, programmable thermostats offer the ideal and affordable solution for conserving energy, enjoying a comfortable home, and contributing to a positive environment.

Programmable thermostats contribute to overall system performance, maximizing energy savings while providing complete comfort control. Costs are also saved because the precise temperature control reduces wear and tear on high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment by properly cycling the equipment.

Best of all, programmable thermostats offer the flexibility to match your lifestyle. You adjust the programming the meet your exact needs and preferences, so you’ll enjoy the energy savings you want without sacrificing the comfort you enjoy.

  • Energy Savings: A programmable thermostat can save you as much as 30 percent — about $180* according to the EPA — on your heating and cooling bills, more than paying for itself in just one year.
  • Comfort: When you wake up in the morning, your home will be comfortable — not too cold or too warm. When you go to bed, the temperature will automatically fall for comfortable sleeping conditions.
  • Convenience: Just set it and forget it — your thermostat automatically adjusts the temperature according to your schedule.

Programmable thermostats provide temperature control that adjusts to your lifestyle. In the winter, for example, the thermostat can be programmed to lower the temperature in the home while you’re away at work, then heat it back to a comfortable temperature just before you get home. You’ll save money by not fully heating or cooling your home all the time.

  • You have the flexibility to program a specific comfort schedule, which includes multiple temperature settings per day, based on your daily routine.
  • With some models you can program each day separately.
  • Once the program has been entered, the thermostat automatically follows that schedule indefinitely.
  • When needed, such as a day you stay home, it’s easy to temporarily change the temperature any time to meet comfort needs.


Many older thermostats may contain mercury and shouldn’t be thrown into the trash. Don’t worry – these thermostats pose no risk while intact. It’s when they are thrown away and are vulnerable to breakage that they raise environmental concerns. In fact, in many states, it’s against the law to throw these thermostats in the trash.

Fortunately, there’s a free program available to properly dispose of waste mercury-containing thermostats.

To make it simple and easy for homeowners and contractors, thermostat manufacturers support the non-profit Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC). Many HVAC wholesale distributors and municipal Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facilities act as TRC collection points. To find a collection location nearest you, please visit TRC’s website at
