Do I really need a programmable thermostat?Comments Off on Do I really need a programmable thermostat?
Not necessarily. You can set your thermostat back manually, but there’s the chance you’ll forget.
The best thing about a programmable thermostat is you can set it around your schedule. For instance, you can set it to kick-in a half hour before you get home from work, so when you do get home it’s warm already.
The benefit is added flexibility.
