A New Thermostat: Simple Upgrade, Big Benefits

Have you been eagerly looking forward to the start of the summer season? If so, you’re definitely not along. We haven’t even gotten into spring quite yet, but this time of the year really has a reputation to getting people to look ahead to warmer, more pleasant weather. Of course, it’s a lot easier to enjoy that warmer weather when you have a great AC ready for action.

If you were unhappy with the overall performance of your air conditioner last year, or if it’s broken down entirely, then a full replacement may be necessary. However, if you just want to make a simple upgrade that will help you to get more out of your existing equipment, you should seriously consider investing in a new thermostat in Snohomish, WA. It may sound like a minor change, but it can have a huge impact on the way in which you use your system.

Take Advantage of Programmability

If you are using a very old manual thermostat, then simply upgrading to a basic digital model is already a step up the ladder. If you really want to start getting more from your HVAC system, though, we strongly urge you to go with a programmable model. One of the major reasons for inefficiency in homes is simply the fact that homeowners don’t want to come back to an uncomfortable house at the end of the workday.

If you aren’t using a programmable thermostat, that means you’ll be heating or cooling your home more than you should really have to when it is empty all day. With a programmable thermostat, however, you can create heating and cooling programs based around your own personal schedule. The system can run moderately during the day to maintain temperatures, then work to adjust those temperatures shortly before you get home for the day.

There are many different thermostats to choose from, so we urge you to give us a call and ask about wireless and smart models as well.
