Programmable Thermostats


When it comes to saving money at home, a programmable thermostat is a great tool for your heating and air conditioning system. When you install a programmable thermostat in your Connecticut home, you can automate your energy savings. When your programmable thermostat is properly set up (we can help), your heating or air conditioning system goes into programmable mode when the house is empty. The programmable thermostat then switches into full comfort mode right on schedule so your home is fully heated or cooled (depending on the season) when you return. Your programmable thermostat lets you "set it and forget it" so you save energy on air conditioning or heat without compromising on comfort.

Nest Thermostats

And independent studies showed that it saved people an average of 10% to 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. So in under two years, it can pay for itself.

A programmable thermostat is recommended for individuals and families who are away from home during set periods of time throughout the week, allowing them to use less energy without sacrificing comfort.

Energy StarĀ® recommends the following steps to maximize your savings with a programmable thermostat:

  • Choose the model that best meets your needs. Thermostats come with either 7-day, 5+2-day, or 5-1-1-day programming capacity.
  • Keep the thermostat set at energy-saving temperatures for long periods of time, such as during the day when no one is home and through the night.
  • Resist the urge to override the pre-programmed settings. Every time you do, you use more energy and may end up paying more on your energy bill.
  • Set the "hold" button at a constant energy-saving temperature when going away for the weekend or on vacation.
  • Install your thermostat away from heating or cooling registers, appliances, lighting, doorways, skylights, and windows, and areas that receive direct sunlight or drafts. Interior walls are best.
  • If you have a heat pump, you may require a special programmable thermostat to maximize your energy savings year-round.
