Do you have a programmable thermostat in your Fort Lauderdale home yet? If you don’t you are missing out on one of the most effective ways to reduce your monthly FPL bill while still maintaining the temperature you prefer inside your house. Your air conditioner and furnace are not particularly smart; they know off and on. Adding a programmable thermostat can give your HVAC some “smarts” and save you energy costs in the process.
FPL says that you can save 1% on your energy bill for every 1 degree higher (for air) or lower (for heat) over an 8 hour period. Your programmable thermostat can set the temperature for every hour of the day if you wanted and it will remember those settings by day so your different requirements for weekends are covered. Net result…savings without sacrificing comfort.
Installing a Programmable Thermostat
Thermostats are available at all home improvement stores and most big box stores. However, not all thermostats are created equal and they will vary in price significantly depending on just how “smart” they are.
However, when you bring the thermostat home it might test just how “smart” you are. There are two issues to address. The first is the actual installation of the thermostat and if a bundle of electrical wires makes you break out in hives you are in trouble. The second issue is the actual programming. If you could never reset the time on your old VCR you are once again in trouble.
The easy way out of this conundrum is to pick up the phone and call South Florida’s leading plumbing and air conditioning company Paradise Service Technologies.
