Fine Tuning The Heat/Humidity Balance With A Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats offer one of the easiest ways to save money on your home’s heating and cooling costs. They come with a range of pre-programmed settings that allow you to time the delivery of warm or cool air, and you can use them to create a heating or cooling schedule that ensures indoor comfort at the right time of day. You won’t pay to heat or cool your home when nobody’s in it, yet you’ll always be able to come home to a house that’s at just the right temperature.

However, programmable thermostats can regulate more than just the temperature in your home. They can also be linked to humidifiers and dehumidifiers, allowing you to add or take away moisture from your indoor air to enhance your comfort level.

During the winter, especially the types of winters we get in Indiana, indoor air tends to become very dry because fresh air from the outdoors isn’t being introduced to the house. By knowing when you need to add humidity, and knowing how much humidity you need to add, you can program your thermostat to automatically turn your humidifier on and off and deliver just the right amount of moisture so you can enjoy indoor comfort without wasting a penny. The same is true of dehumidifiers, which are indispensable appliances given the humid summers we tend to get here.

To install and set your programmable thermostats so that they optimize your energy savings, turn to a reputable HVAC company with the knowledge and experience to get the job done right.

Our goal is to help educate our customers about energy and home comfort issues (specific to HVAC systems).  For more information about programmable thermostats and other HVAC topics, click here to download our free Home Comfort Resource guide.
