Heating and cooling losses from a home or office will become greater as the difference between inside and outside temperature increases. A programmable thermostat will help reduce this loss by allowing the temperature difference to be reduced at times when lower or higher than normal temperatures would not affect you. For example, during summer time, a home with a programmable thermostat installed can allow the temperature inside to rise during the workday when no one is home. The thermostat can be programmed to turn on the air conditioning at a time before you get home, thus allowing your house to become cool before your arrival. All the while saving you on unnecessary energy cost by not having to run your air conditioning during those peak hot outdoor temperatures.
Conversely, during winter, a programmable thermostat can allow the inside temperature to drop when your home or office would normally not be occupied during the day. You can also save on energy costs at night by lowering the temperature after everyone has gone to bed, the thermostat can be programmed to turn on the heat and start warming up the house before you wake up in the morning. Since most people often sleep better in cooler temperatures, and the temperature differential between the exterior and interior of a home will be greatest during a cold winter night, this will save on energy loss and in turn save on energy cost.
Businesses, offices, and commercial buildings can benefit from programmable thermostat in the very same way. By adjusting temperatures depending on occupancy patterns, energy costs can greatly be reduced.
