How Do Our Electronic Thermostats Save Energy?
Electronic thermostats maintain a tighter temperature control and reduce temperature swings
- A conventional bi-metal thermostat has an average temperature swing of up to 4 (a total variance of 8 degrees)
- An electronic thermostat can have a temperature swing as tight as 0.5 degrees (a total variance of 1 degree)
- A wide temperature swing typically forces homeowner to turn the thermostat up to compensate for downswings in room temperature, thus increasing energy use.
Even more energy savings can be obtained through the use of a PROGRAMMABLE electronic thermostat. Savings can be as high as 28%
