Owning a home or business comes with many decisions and deciding whether to get a digital or analog thermostat is one of them. A thermostat is what programs the air conditioning system to shut on and shut off at certain temperatures, so having one that works best for your space can save you both time and money. Energy efficient and digital thermostats are becoming the new norm in most homes and businesses, and it’s no surprise when you learn about their benefits!
Continue reading below to learn more information regarding digital thermostats and how they can benefit your home or business.
What are the benefits of a digital thermostat?
Since your HVAC unit’s efficiency and workload is dependent on the thermostat you have, it’s important to assess how you can save the most time and money with your heating and air conditioning system. Digital thermostats come with benefits to home and business owners alike. They offer users advanced customization options and energy savings. Digital thermostats give you the liberty to program your heating and air conditioning unit to turn on at certain times of the day and cut back on at other times. This is a great feature for those that work away from the home. If you are away you can program your thermostat to be slightly higher to save energy, and then when your workday is over, the thermostat can be programmed to lower back to the desired temperatures when you are home. This change in temperature will help save you money and reduce the energy your unit needs to use during the hot summer days here on the Crystal Coast.
Digital thermostats also make it very easy to have your home or business at a precise temperature. If you are an owner of a home that you rent for guests, digital thermostats can give you the control you want and the ability to lock in temperatures for your space. The comfort of guests is important, but they are not the ones who pay the electric bill, so it’s nice to know you have that control if you need it. Ultimately, digital thermostats are convenient and save you money. What more could you ask for in a heating and air conditioning unit?
Are there any drawbacks of getting a digital thermostat?
While digital thermostats offer home and business owners many cost-effective benefits, they do require more of an investment upfront. Because they are advanced and require electrical work, a licensed professional should install your digital thermostat! You should also talk to them about which digital thermostats are compatible with your existing HVAC unit.
