Cincinnati Programmable Thermostats and Installation
If you and your family lead an active, busy lifestyle, then programmable thermostats are just right for helping to keep your home at the most comfortable temperatures. This type of thermostat is very popular today because they help save energy, keep you comfy, and pay for themselves in about a year.
Meet the Smith Family
The Smith family has two school-aged children. Both parents work outside the home and find 72 degrees to be the comfortable temperature for their family.
A Winter Example
During the school year, no one is home from 7 AM until 3 PM during the week. The Smiths don’t want to waste their hard-earned money on energy they don’t use, so they program their thermostat to 60° at 7 AM. The temperature returns to 72° at 2:30 PM, just before the kids get home.
The family is home celebrating Memorial Day. Since they are home this Monday—instead of at work or school—they temporarily override the program by returning the temperature setting to 72°.
The Smiths plan to go to Florida for spring break, and since their leave is extended, they program the thermostat to return to 72° the morning they get home.
A Green Choice
Programmable thermostats contain no mercury and are eco-friendly. They use less energy overall and help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are associated with energy production.
A non-programmable thermostat can regulate the room temperature to one desired temperature. You have to manually change the setting when you want a different temperature for your home.
