If you are used to an old fashioned thermostat in your home, you might not know how much the technology for temperature control has advanced. Digital thermostats allow you to maximize the energy used for your HVAC unit – and save a considerable amount of money.
Here are a few reasons why we highly recommend upgrading to a digital thermostat at Freedom Air and Heat.
1. Saving Money
Since such a large percentage of your electric bill comes from the cost of heating and cooling your home, adjusting your temperature even slightly can lower the energy you consume and therefore lower the cost. Digital thermostats can also be programmed to adjust temperature automatically on a schedule. That means that you can adjust to a higher summer temp or lower winter temp while no one is at home and comfort is not necessary. Then, after a full day of saving you money, your thermostat will adjust to a more comfortable temperature when you come home.
2. Ease of Mind
Along with the scheduling feature mentioned above, most digital thermostats come with a “vacation mode” setting. With the press of a button, you can have peace of mind during your vacation that your thermostat is saving you money back at home. Some digital thermostats can be controlled with your smart phone, which means that you can adjust the temperature exactly the way you want no matter where you are. Not only is this a luxury while you are relaxing at home, it can also be helpful for times when you are out of the house.
3. HVAC Optimization
Even if you have a high quality HVAC unit, it can underperform or have a shorter lifespan without the right upkeep. A digital thermostat is designed to help your HVAC unit perform as efficiently as possible. Not only can digital thermostats adjust the temperature automatically, they can monitor your HVAC unit and provide you with data about the way it is functioning.
4. Comfort Zones
A digital thermostat can help you stay in your comfort zone—literally! Some models include different thermostats that can control the temperature in different parts of your house, sometimes even room by room. So if you and your family having differing opinions about the ideal temp for the season, everybody can win by using zoning systems.
5. Eco Friendliness
Not only do digital thermostats make your HVAC unit more energy efficient, they also do not contain any mercury. This toxic substance can be dangerous, and digital thermostats don’t have to rely on it to function since they are designed exclusively with circuitry. With the precision of a digital thermostat for your HVAC comes the satisfying knowledge that you are reducing your overall carbon footprint by using less energy.
Because of their ability to pinpoint the exact temperature you need for any situation, digital thermostats are extremely energy efficient. They can help you save money, stay comfortable, and protect the environment.
