Springtime is here, and we’re just a few short weeks away from another hot and humid Arkansas summer. Are you ready? This is a great time to do some basic maintenance on your household air conditioning system. Make it a point to change your air filters, inspect your ductwork, and have your outdoor unit professionally cleaned. Keeping your air conditioning running efficiently is one of the most effective ways to lower your utility bills.
Another easy way to manage household energy costs is with a programmable thermostat. By reducing the workload on your unit during off-peak hours, you can experience significant energy savings, and often also prolong the life of your unit. Here are some of the key benefits that you can expect when you install a programmable thermostat:
The most obvious and immediate benefit is energy savings. Whether you’re using a basic programmable digital thermostat, or a more sophisticated occupancy or light-sensing model, you should begin to see significant savings starting with your next bill
Programming your thermostat is a simple, straightforward process that you can learn in minutes. Once you determine your family’s daily routines, and program your thermostat, you’re done! And you also have the freedom to manually override the temperature at any time.
Arkansas weather can be notoriously unpredictable, and sometimes the weather forecast is merely a suggestion of what you can expect. The good news is that many thermostats now include Wi-Fi accessibility, and you can easily update your programmed settings on the internet, or with a smart phone app. No matter what Mother Nature does, your home will always be at the temperature that you want.
