When you are trying to save money around the house, a new thermostat is definitely worth looking into. There are a lot of features available on newer models that can help you save money on your heating and cooling costs throughout the year. You do not need to wait until it is time to replace your home comfort system to upgrade your thermostat. Most thermostats can work with many different types of heating and cooling systems. So no matter what type of HVAC system you have or how old it is, you should be able to integrate some type of new thermostat into it.
Even the most basic programmable thermostat can let you set different temperatures for different times of day. You can program the thermostat to turn the heat down during the day when no one is home and then you can have the heat switch back on just before you get home. Or you can install an intelligent Nest thermostat and control your home HVAC from your iPhone!
Many newer thermostats also are more accurate and can provide more pinpoint control of your heating and cooling system. That means that you will not be wasting money because your heating system gets the actual temperature in your house up to 75°F when you only really need it to hit 72°F. Newer thermostats help you to save money in a variety of ways, and those savings will more than pay for the cost of having a new thermostat installed.
It’s a small price to pay considering the increased comfort with a state of the art thermostat and the potential for savings every month on your heating or cooling bills. Plus, you likely paid a considerable amount to have that state of the art HVAC system put in. It is worth paying just a bit more so that you can get the most out of it.
