5 Benefits of a Programmable Thermostat

  • < Back to Blog

    The more you can use technology to your benefit, the easier your life can be. This goes even more so for using technology to make your home work for you. Pickett Heating & Air can help install a programmable thermostat that will make your life easier and more comfortable in many ways.

    1. Travel Plans – If you have already left your house, the last thing you want to do is turn around to go adjust your air. With a programmable thermostat, you can set the air on a hotter temperature before you leave so you aren’t losing valuable money while you and your family are away. Before you return, you can automatically adjust the air in your home to be cool when you get home.

    2. Saving Money – Programmable thermostats can be set to run the air conditioner or heater when you need it. This saves you money in the long run by keeping your AC or heater from constantly running when you aren’t at home. While it is easy to turn the air off for long periods of time, it can be difficult to predict when you will be back from an errand or a few hours out of the home. A programmable thermostat will allow you to adjust as needed.

    3. Smart Technology – Many, if not all, programmable thermostats have enough built-in intelligence to begin learning your schedule. In doing so, as people pass through rooms and by reading fluctuations in the temperature, your thermostat will start adjusting to making you more comfortable without you having to think about it or touching the programming at all.

    4. Run From Anywhere – Not only can you fix your air from the road or when leaving the airport, but you can also adjust your air from the couch, from the comfort of your bed, or anywhere else you might be. Instead of sitting, uncomfortable, trying to decide whether or not to get up, you can set the air to your exact needs and specifications.

    5. Improved HVAC Function – Your thermostat works to tell your HVAC system when to turn on and when to turn off. By installing a programmable thermostat, you will decrease the amount of time your system is on and only run it when you actually need it. This reduces needless stress, leading to a better functioning and longer life for your entire system.
