The longer you’ve lived in Florida, the more time you’ve had to get used to wild swings in winter temperatures. Compared to the consistently high heat of the summer, temperatures can range anywhere from 40 to 80 degrees during the winter, and often change at a moment’s notice. Not only is this inconvenient and uncomfortable, but it makes it harder to save energy on heating. When temperatures frequently drop only to come back up again, you’ll often find your heating system on higher than it needs to be, driving up your gas and electric bill while increasing your impact on the environment.
Programmable thermostats offer a convenient solution to this heating dilemma. By setting your heating system to keep the home at the ideal temperature for different parts of the day, you allow it to use the precise amount of energy necessary to achieve and maintain that temperature. This minimizes energy waste, lowers your bills, and helps you preserve the environment.
