In a typical HVAC system, the thermostat acts as a switch to turn on the system when your home goes a certain amount below the set temperature in the winter, or above it in the summer. Older mechanical thermostats had to be adjusted manually, while today’s programmable models can save energy by automatically adjusting the temperature based on your schedule.
If you are considering a new thermostat, our team at Buric Heating & Air Conditioning can help you choose the best model for your HVAC system and provide complete installation services.

How to Save the Most Energy With Your Programmable Thermostat
To maximize the energy savings with a programmable thermostat, you should pick a comfortable base temperature of 65 to 70 degrees for the winter and 75 to 80 degrees for the summer. Evey degree you adjust the base temperature lower in the winter or higher in the summer, you can reduce your energy costs by 1 to 3 percent.
The real impact comes when you are asleep or away from home. By reducing the thermostat 10 to 12 degrees in the winter during those periods, or raising it in the summer, you can save up to 20 percent. And, by retuning the temperature to normal before you arrive home or wake up, you can save money without affecting your comfort.
