Bloomington, IN (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
When looking for heater repair, Richfield, residents may want to consider installing a programmable thermostat as well, advises the technicians at Bloomington Heating and Air Conditioning. They state that a programmable thermostat can save a homeowner hundreds of dollars on energy costs per year. It can also help extend the life of a home’s heating unit and reduce the need for repairs.
On average, a homeowner saves approximately three percent for every degree the thermostat is set below 72 degrees. A programmable thermostat enables a homeowner to pre-set the home’s temperature to be lower at certain times of the day, such as during the afternoon when most people are at work and the house is empty, or at night, when most people are asleep and under the warmth of blankets. During these times, the home’s heating unit will use less energy and will cost less to operate. Since most programmable thermostats have the ability to be programmed for up to a week, that can add up to a significant amount of savings.
The cost for a programmable thermostats usually runs between $30 and $250, but with the convenience, savings, and comfort it provides, it will easily pay for itself in about a year.
