Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats feature intuitive controls and settings homeowners can manage from one single access point or by app, depending on the model.

What is a Programmable Thermostat?

A programmable thermostat is a central control panel for your heating and cooling system. It allows you to program the temperature of your home to fit your lifestyle and save energy when you are not using it. Most programmable thermostats feature intuitive controls that allow you to adjust the settings from one single access point, or even via an app on your phone or tablet. 

These devices are best for those that would rather set their devices to their unique needs and let the thermostat do the rest of the heavy lifting. Schedule automated temperature changes, sync to control from your smartphone and enjoy a modern, backlit interface.

Benefits of programmable thermostats

Programmable thermostats offer many benefits for homeowners: 

  • Improved comfort: Programmable thermostats allow you to set temperatures for specific times so that your home is always at a comfortable level when needed. 
  • Lower energy bills: By setting back or raising the temperature during certain times of the day, programmable thermostats can help reduce energy costs by up to 15%.
  • Greater control: With programmable thermostats, you have the ability to program and monitor your home’s temperature from anywhere with an internet connection.

Tips for choosing a programmable thermostat 

When selecting a programmable thermostat for your home, there are several factors to consider: 

  • Compatibility: Make sure that the programmable thermostat is compatible with your existing heating and cooling system. 
  • Features: Look for features like touchscreen display, remote access and scheduling options that will suit your lifestyle. Programmable thermostats can be worth the investment when used correctly and can help reduce your monthly heating and cooling costs.
  • Installation: Self-installation of your programmable thermostat is not recommended unless you already have basic electrical knowledge. Contact a heating and cooling system dealer in your area and let an expert handle your installation.
