If you would like to reduce the energy usage of your Northern New Jersey home, and reduce your utility bills at the same time, one of the easiest and cheapest ways is to install a programmable thermostat. By controlling the temperature of your home automatically, a programmable thermostat can keep your home comfortable while you are home and reduce the usage of your HVAC system when you are sleeping or away from home. There are many different models on the market now, ranging from simple devices with different settings for weekdays and weekends, to Internet-connected devices that can be controlled remotely.
Basic Programmable Thermostat Features:
Regardless of the type, most programmable thermostats allow you to set the temperature to a normal setting for when you are home, then reduce or increase the temperature while you are away or sleeping. Most models will have several set-points for each day, with a different schedule for the weekends or each weekend day. Typically, they also have a vacation mode, which will override the normal schedule if you are away for a longer period of time, as well as a manual override to adjust the temperature as you wish.
