Keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer is a priority, but if you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you could be missing out. There are many reasons to use one. Here are just three of them.
One of the biggest benefits of using a programmable thermostat is the money it can save you. Nearly 40% of the energy used by your home goes to your HVAC system. Programming your thermostat to adjust to your heating and cooling needs and your lifestyle and schedule can reduce energy use by up to 30%. Less energy use means lower utility bills.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Making your home more energy efficient is important to most homeowners and bill payers. A programmable or smart thermostat allows you to create a schedule to automatically turn the heat or air up or down based on your preferences, when you’re home or away, and when the weather changes unexpectedly. This functionality leads to less energy use and greater energy efficiency.
Are you sick of constantly adjusting the temperature setting on your thermostat? If you’re ready to set it and forget it, a programmable thermostat is the right choice for you. The intuitive interface and broad range of options mean you can set your HVAC system once and it will adjust the temperature automatically based on those settings. What could be more convenient?

Increased Energy Efficiency and Reduced Water Waste
When it comes to your plumbing, annual inspections ensure they don’t have issues that could bump up your water bill. Here are some of the things included:
- Evaluate all plumbing and fixtures that are visible and not behind walls or drywall
- Check all water lines, faucets, and toilets for leaks that could be increasing your water use
- Inspect gas pipes to ensure there are no leaks
- Look at waste lines to check for leakage
- Check water heaters for proper function
- Ensure pumps are operating normally
Repairs to your plumbing system can throw your budget completely off track. Regular inspection and service can find and repair small issues before they become expensive problems. Additionally, with regular service, well-functioning equipment is less likely to break down, preventing costly repairs.
Longer Life Expectancy for Your Systems
Just like a car that gets regular service, your plumbing will last longer when it gets the TLC it needs. Maintenance and service keep it functioning as it should, cutting down on wear and tear and increasing the life expectancy of your water equipment. If you compare the cost of maintenance to the cost of repair or replacement, you’ll see you’ll come out ahead with the right service plan.
