Why Your Cincinnati Home or Business Needs a Programmable Thermostat


Many home and business owners in Cincinnati have already made the switch to programmable thermostats, but you can still find old manual stats in various houses and commercial locations. Even though the old model may still work, it isn’t working its best for you.

Programmable thermostats are a simple upgrade which can pay for itself very quickly in terms of energy savings. If you don’t have one, here are a few reasons you should install a programmable thermostat right away!

Programmable thermostats save Cincinnati users money & energy

Programmable thermostats provide automatic comfort control, changing indoor temperatures based on your household’s or business’s schedule. The thermostat’s schedules are pre-programmed, and from then on, the thermostat makes temperature switches on its own, so you don’t have to. Automatic temperature setbacks of 8 to 10 degrees when the building is empty or while your family is sleeping can save you up to 10 percent on annual energy bills.

How many times have you left home without turning your temperature lower? While you may prefer a 70 degree home while you’re there, it’s not necessary when you’re gone.

Automatic comfort from programmable thermostats

Is the idea of coming home to a chilly house keeping you from utilizing energy-saving temperature setbacks? Programmable thermostats solve that inconvenience! Temperature schedules are programmed around your day – set the temperature to begin rising about 15 minutes before you’re due home, and you’ll come home to a comfortable house without wasting energy all day.

The same goes for businesses. Keep your employees comfortable by scheduling setbacks to begin about 15 minutes before closing time. Set temperatures to rise about 15 minutes before you open, and your workplace will be comfortable upon arrival.

Nelson Comfort offers a wide range of programmable thermostats to work with all types of HVAC systems, offering the precise scheduling your household or business needs to remain comfortable while saving energy. Contact us today to have a new programmable thermostat installed by our NATE-certified technicians.
