When you are building a home, many decisions must be made, including whether to get a traditional or digital thermostat. While some gadgets tend to be nothing but hype, a digital thermostat is one innovation you would do well to consider. Maronda Homes, a Central Ohio builder explains why.
A digital programmable thermostat can save you time and money, by allowing you to adapt your home’s temperature to your lifestyle. You can program your digital thermostat so that no heat or air conditioning is used when no one is at home, and to adjust temperatures when the household is a sleep. If you are going to be away from home for several days, you can use your digital thermostat’s programming to reduce your energy costs. On the other hand, if you are on a fairly regular schedule, you can set it and forget it. Digital thermostats will continue to make the changes in temperature that you program in until you change it again.
Another advantage of digital thermostats is that they have an easy to read screen. This eliminates the guess work of tapping the little lever up and down, and allows everyone to see the current temperature, as well as what is scheduled. Being able to clearly see the temperature on your thermostat discourages you from changing it, unless you really need to.
Programming your digital thermostat to save money by adjusting the temperature while you are away or sleeping is a great way to save money. However, you might not realize that a digital thermostat can be a luxury item as well. This is because you can set it to change the temperature before you come home, making your home a more comfortable environment. There is no guess work involved, because you will quickly learn what makes the most sense for your home.
Overall, a digital thermostat makes your home run more efficiently, and that kind of efficiency reduces the wasting of electricity. Installing a digital thermostat is not difficult, and it can easily be done during a home renovation, as well as during new home construction.
