Perhaps it’s time I purchase a programmable thermostat

Last night, I fell asleep on the sofa in the family room after seeing a movie.

I know I was sleepy because I slept through the entire night.

Usually, when I fall asleep in the family room, I would eventually make my way to my home office, but that didn’t happen last night. Anyway, as part of my nightly routine, I adjust the temperature on my thermostat to my ideal sleep temperature, which is 70 degrees. If I am not sleeping, the thermostat is set to 76 degrees, which might sound a bit high, but it’s surprisingly pretty comfortable during the day. Well, because I skipped my nightly routine, my thermostat was still set to 76 degrees. So, this day I woke up as well as I was drenched in sweat. I know that the cooling system did not cycle on during the night because the thermostat was set so high. While this was a random happening, it made me consider getting a programmable thermostat. With a programmable thermostat, I wouldn’t have to manually adjust it every night because it would already be programmed that way. The set it as well as forget it feature of a programmable thermostat makes all the difference. It’s one less thing that I would need to consider when going to bed or when I wake up in the day. And if I fell asleep on the couch, I wouldn’t wake up in a complete sweat because my house was so warm. There are more benefits to having a programmable thermostat, although I know the set it as well as forget it feature is perhaps the best one.
