Remember the bad old days when thermostats had four settings – heat, cool, fan, and off – that you had to adjust manually? Too hot? Get up and change the thermostat. Too cold? Get up and change the thermostat. Did you forget to turn the temperature down for sleeping or for when there’s nobody there? Uh-oh. Not only is that an awful nuisance, it’s also a really expensive way to try to keep your space a comfortable temperature.
The good news is that keeping your home or business comfortable year-round is easy now with a programmable thermostat. A programmable thermostat allows you to precisely control the amount and timing of the heat and cooling.
With a programmable thermostat, you can create a custom heating and cooling schedule to suit your needs. With the WiFi-enabled models, you can even do it remotely. Some programmable thermostats will even “learn” the temperatures you like and program itself. Some will provide real-time weather forecasts and alerts, and some will even remind you when it’s time to change your HVAC system’s filters or call an HVAC technician for routine service.
Not only will you be more comfortable, but you’ll help to reduce the carbon footprint, save energy costs and prolong the life of your HVAC system.
So, is all this awesomeness expensive to get and install? Nope. It sounds expensive, but it isn’t. Programmable thermostats are one of the lowest costs ways you can increase comfort and improve energy efficiency.
There is a dozen or more manufacturers of programmable thermostats and they each have many models from which to choose. Are you unsure of which one you should get? We can help.
