Why You Should Consider a Programmable Thermostat

It’s no secret that summers here require a fully functioning and efficient air conditioning system. However, just as equally important as a good air conditioner is the ability to maintain control over its use. For this reason, we recommend upgrading your thermostat to a programmable option. Keep reading to learn about the numerous benefits of doing so.

Improved Comfort

With a programmable thermostat, there’s no need to wait until you get home in order to adjust the temperature of your living space. Rather, you can set your timer and temperatures beforehand based on your routine, and let you thermostat do the rest. This way, you have cool air the moment you enter your home.


Have you ever left your home for a day or even for a weekend and then realized that you didn’t leave your air on? With a programmable thermostat, you’ll never have to delay your plans or turn around when you’re already on your way out just to go set the thermostat. Rather, you can program it beforehand.


Continually messing with the thermostat actually has a negative impact on the energy efficiency of your home. You can still of course set an override temperature if you must, however for the most part you can let your programmable thermostat take the reigns and you won’t have to worry about it.

When it comes to choosing the right thermostat for your home and for your family, be sure to trust the professionals we have on staff. We’ll help you make an educated decision about whether a programmable thermostat is your best option, or if you should invest in a wi-fi thermostat—also called a smart thermostat—or even a simpler digital thermostat.
