Programmable thermostats are one of our most recommended installations to all of our clients at Northern’s One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning. And it’s no wonder – this technology is something every home should have for the sheer convenience, not to mention the monetary and comfort benefits. Here are just three of the several reasons why you should install a programmable thermostat in your home as soon as possible, especially as we’re about to move into winter! And remember, the team at Northern’s can set one up for you in no time at all.

1. It Will Save You Money

Did you ever cover your eyes as you opened that envelope, because you knew that month’s electric bill was going to be so high? Maybe it was this month’s, because of how hot our weather has been, and you’ve kept the air conditioning going around the clock. This is where a programmable thermostat shines – you can set your exact temperature preferences for when you’re about to leave for the day, or you can turn your unit off completely to have zero energy waste when you’re not there to enjoy it. Are you skeptical that it could save you that much money? Well, don’t be, because by being in control of the temperature and the duration your HVAC unit is on, you can save as much as 10% per year on the cost of energy.

2. Consistency of Temperature

There’s no way around it: programmable thermostats are the best way to have consistent temperature and comfort all around your home. If you’ve never experienced it before, you may not realize just how incredible that can be. You’ll be able to have your entire home maintain the exact same cool temperature in the summer, and a cozy, toasty temperature in the winter. Especially upstairs in your home, you will be just as comfortable as if you were right next to your HVAC unit.

3. Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is more than just saving on costs. Having an energy efficient home shows that you’re environmentally conscious. By not using energy unnecessarily, you are being greener than you may realize! Also, we’ve done the homework for you. We only offer thermostats from the most trusted, energy efficient brands, so you can feel good about your installation.
