It as not too long ago that a programmable thermostat was a rare thing to find in homes. That is no longer the case as these have become pretty much standard across today’s home AC Jacksonville systems. The reason behind the growth and popularity of programmable thermostats is the many benefits that they bring to the table. These thermostats help you save energy and also save money while giving you greater control over the comfort of your home at all hours of the day.

A programmable thermostat basically gives you full control over the temperature of your home, no matter when it may be. You can set it ahead of time so that you do not have to worry about turning the AC Jacksonville temperature up when you are at work all day because you do not need it as cool. Programmable thermostats let you truly set it and forget it and just enjoy all of the great results your air conditioning system can generate on its own.

For Those Working All Day

Many of us get up and head off to work first thing every single morning. What this usually required with old-fashioned thermostats is for us to physically go up to the thermostat and change it so that the AC Jacksonville is not using too much energy during the day. A programmable thermostat offers tons of different benefits to this type of individual.

You have the ability to adjust the temperature of your home according to a particular user’s actual schedule. You can set it based on the day of the week, the time of the day, or any way that you like. For example, if you want the AC Jacksonville to turn lower at 9 p.m. at night so that it gets cooler when you go to bed, you can have it do that. If you want the thermostat to adjust on the weekend versus weekday, that can be set as well.

Stored Settings

Programmable thermostats also allow you to store settings on them so that what you set can be repeated on a daily and weekly basis. If you feel as though you want to go off schedule for a few days, you can also manually override the system to change the temperature to your liking.

Energy Savings

What all of this boils down to is the fact that you really can enjoy some amazing energy-saving benefits from a programmable thermostat working in tandem with your AC Jacksonville system. These energy savings mean that your home is going to be that much greener and you will spend that much less on a monthly basis trying to cool your home. With the heat that we all experience in those hot summer months in Georgia, Florida, and the rest of the southeast, this is highly pivotal.

Remote Possibilities

Another advancement as of late with programmable thermostats is the ability to set them remotely as well through your smartphone. We are starting to see plenty of options out there in the market where you can use your smartphone to change the temperature of your home and your thermostat no matter where you are. This is the whole idea behind a smart home and it is really taking off and adding a whole new layer of benefits to the programmable thermostat scene.

Programmable thermostats are the way to go whether you either already have an AC Jacksonville system or you will be adding a system in the coming months. The level of control these thermostats provide and also the energy-saving benefits make them more than an ideal choice.
