What if you could be comfortable every day of the year without sacrificing air quality, home efficiency, or money? With a programmable thermostat from Barrett Cooling, you can! We can recommend the best thermostat to fit the needs of your home, family, and budget. After deciding on one, read this article for the best tips on controlling and getting the most out of your new device.

Figure Out a Daily Schedule

Many of us are away from home for a large portion of the day either running errands or going to work. Figuring out a daily schedule can help you save on your monthly energy bills! You just set your thermostat higher or lower based on when you’re away from home and when you return home. This keeps costs low while you’re away and keeps you comfortable while you’re home. You can also set the temperature to change based on when you go to bed and when you wake up. This can help you save money overnight as well.

We’ve listed out some daily programming tips for scheduling your home’s comfort settings:
