Benefits Beyond Temperature Control With A Programmable Thermostat

Posted by Paul Wadsworth on Wed, Apr 06, 2011 @ 12:19 PM

You probably know that programmable thermostats can change the temperature settings throughout  the day to minimize energy usage and keep your home comfortable.  But, did you also know that programmable thermostats can control your indoor humidity level and whole-house ventilation system?

They can do this and so much more.

If your home comfort system includes more than just heating and cooling, why wouldn’t you want to control all the settings from one place?  Many programmable thermostats allow you to easily integrate a whole-house humidifier or dehumidifier, a ventilation system, or an electronic air cleaner.

Programmable thermostats can also help you maintain your home comfort system by providing reminders for air filter changes, regular maintenance appointments, UV light bulb changes and more.  In order to run as efficiently as possible, your home comfort system requires all of its components to be operating smoothly.  Programmable thermostats can help you keep your home comfort equipment operating at peak performance.

You have probably encountered a situation where you are in a different room than the thermostat, but want to adjust the temperature setting.  Perhaps you were cozy on the couch and wanted the room to be a little warmer.  Some programmable thermostats have a remote control feature that allows you to change the settings from anywhere in the house.  Even more advanced programmable thermostats can link to a wireless connection and allow you to change settings from anywhere with a computer.  This feature is perfect for vacation homes or rentals.

Of course, not every feature programmable thermostats have to offer may be of interest to you.  Different models combine different benefits, and not every model will be right for your specific needs.  In addition , not all programmable thermostats will work with all types of home comfort equipment.  For example, electric systems and heat pumps require certain types of thermostats.

The best way to determine which thermostat is right for you is to work with a professional.  The technicians at P.K. Wadsworth can help you find the solution that works with your existing heating and cooling system and best meets your needs.
