Programmable Thermostat

One common HVAC upgrade we see more and more of is the switch to a programmable thermostat. People have different reasons for wanting to make the change, but the most commonly heard reasons are for energy efficiency and convenience.

Set it and forget it

With a programmable thermostat, you don’t have to wonder whether you turned off your system – or turned it down – before you hit the door for work. The biggest benefit of a programmable thermostat is that you can set it once and never think about it again. A 7-day programmable thermostat can even have different on/off times and temperature settings for different days of the week, giving you the ultimate control over your system.

Save money

Why run your unit when you’re not home to enjoy it? Most programmable thermostats come with energy-efficiency programs built in. Raising the temperature can save as much as 1% of your energy bill for every degree over an eight-hour period. This can save you up to 15% annually.

Using a programmable thermostat makes this money saving automatic and painless.

Automatic comfort

Just like you can automate your savings, you can be assured that your programmable thermostat will have your home at a comfortable temperature when you return, by coming back on before you get back home.

Your thermostat doesn’t just regulate your home’s temperature. It regulates up to half of your monthly electric bill, money that’s spent on heating and cooling your home, often when you’re away or asleep and can’t enjoy it.
