How to choose the right programmable thermostat

On the hunt for a new programmable thermostat for your home? It may seem like a small detail, but choosing the right thermostat for your house is more important than you might think. There are a variety of different programmable thermostat options on the market today, but which one is right for your space? Here are some helpful tips on how to choose the right one.

Some thermostat models will allow you to change settings between heating and air conditioning as needed and you can change the temperature to whatever feels comfortable throughout the day. Programming the temperature to turn off or on at certain parts of the day depending on when you need it, can help save money and energy. For instance, if you’re at work during the majority of the day, there is no need for the heat or air conditioning to be running at full speed all day. A programmable thermostat will allow you to turn the system off or on a lower temperature while you’re out, then you can program it to turn back on shortly before you come home so it’s comfortable when you arrive. In addition, a lot of programmable thermostats have WiFi capability, allowing you to access your thermostat via your phone. This is becoming more and more popular with homeowners as the “smart home” movement continues to evolve. When you’re looking for a new thermostat, consider what features are must-haves so you’re not left wanting something more.

Why you should schedule your service appointment during spring cleaning


Spring is officially here and it’s a great time for homeowners to de-clutter and organize their home to get it ready for the longer, warmer days. If you want to help reduce harmful allergens and breathe cleaner air, it’s a great idea to get your HVAC system serviced. The air inside your home can often times be more polluted than the outside air, but if you take care of your heating and cooling system, you can keep healthy throughout the year.  In addition, if you maintain your equipment well, you will prevent future problems and other unexpected costs later down the road. Routine yearly maintenance appointments are important and necessary.

We’ll check your thermostat settings to make sure it’s accurate and able to keep you comfortable throughout the spring and summer months. If the thermostat works in tandem with your furnace system, it will save energy. This translates to a lower utility bill and a healthier environment.  We’ll also check the moving parts and electrical components/connections in your system. If the system has any sort of defects – especially electrical – it could pose a safety threat or ruin the overall lifespan of the system and the larger components that help it run.
