With the end of a scorching summer coming up, you’ve probably had it up to here with high cooling bills, but may have only a brief interlude of lovely Fall weather before Winter kicks off and high heating bills take their place. It can feel like a treadmill that never stops.

But you can get some relief with programmable thermostat installation from DASH Heating & Cooling®. A programmable thermostat not only helps cut your monthly utility bills, it has longer term benefits as well, making it dollar for dollar one of the most cost-effective upgrades you can take advantage of.

Here are three of the many ways proper use of a programmable thermostat can save money and make life easier:

1. Less Stress: When you program your schedule into the thermostat, you seldom have to think about it again, and having the A/C or heating unit shut off just after everyone leaves, then turn back on about a half hour before returning is like having a butler who never complains about the temperature. Plus, when you leave for work, you only have to worry whether or not you left the coffee going. The thermostat’s covered.

2. Lower Utility Bills: Smart use of a programmable thermostat lets you set temperatures a little higher in summer and lower in winter, but be comfortable with less effort from the heat and air system, which can lower your monthly bills by 10, 15, or even 20 percent. If your annual cost for heating and cooling totals $2000 or more, that $300 or $400 savings pays for the thermostat in no time.

3. Lower Repair/Replacement Costs: When A/C and heating systems don’t have to work as hard as often, critical components can last longer, delaying significant repair/replacement costs by as much as two, or even 5 years. That’s some major coin in your pocket while your heat and air hums happily away.
