As a homeowner, you likely look for easy ways to manage and lower your energy bills without sacrificing your comfort. Your thermostat is critical when it comes to controlling your HVAC system, but thermostats become outdated after 10 years. Below are five benefits of upgrading your thermostat that you should consider for your Lusby, MD, home.
Older thermostats, especially those that still have needles, have minimal control options. They don’t automatically adjust temperatures or take into account humidity and pollen levels to take care of your indoor air quality. With a new control, you don’t have to worry about changing the temperature when you leave or come home.
2. Improved Efficiency
Modern programmable thermostats have sensors and settings that greatly increases the efficiency of your HVAC system. When you don’t have to spend time adjusting the thermostat, the faster the control can respond to changes. A programmable thermostat can learn your habits and adjust the temperature before you even arrive home.
3. Lower Utility Bills
With improved efficiency comes lower utility bills. Along with routine maintenance for your HVAC system, a programmable thermostat helps you use less energy to keep your home comfortable. When you use less energy, your utility bills decrease, leaving more money in your bank account.
Programmable thermostats are compatible with zoned AC systems. Home zoning improves the comfort of your home by solving the issue of cold spots in the home, as each zone has its own thermostat. If you have a room you don’t use, you can avoid heating that room.
