Why you need a smart thermostat
Having a good thermostat is very important to ensure your furnace and air conditioner are operating at maximum efficiency. You save both energy and money if your furnace and air conditioner are intelligently programmed.
For example, with a conventional thermostat you might set your desired temperature to 72 degrees. Then if you leave the house for 8 hours, your furnace is working to keep your house at 72 degrees when you are not even home. This is wasted energy and money. With a smart thermostat, you can turn the temperature down once you arrive at work. This enables your heating system to operate on low or even shut down while you are away. Then, when you are 30 minutes from home, you can use your smartphone to remotely set the temperature back to 72 degrees, turning the furnace on, so that you arrive home to a nice toasty house.
On a hot day, you can do the same thing with your air conditioning. Our HVAC experts can recommend and install a smart thermostat for you.
Be efficient with a smart thermostat
Smart thermostats, like Nest, have many advanced features, including letting you program your desired temperatures based on the day and time, plus controlling the temperature remotely via your smartphone. This works for both your heating and air conditioning systems.
