Ready for the easiest way to save money on your heating and cooling bills? It doesn’t take a fancy new HVAC system or any crazy energy saving tricks on your part—all you need is a programmable thermostat! Using a programmable thermostat makes it almost effortless to maximize the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems—you can even control it from your mobile device. If you want to install a programmable thermostat in your Kansas City home, call Top Notch Heating, Cooling & Plumbing today!
Why install a programmable thermostat?
With a programmable thermostat, saving money has never been easier! After you install a programmable thermostat from Top Notch, setup is extremely easy (and our techs can help you if you want). You’ll be able to set different temperatures for:
- Different times of day
- Different days of the week
- Vacations and time-off
- Different temperatures that your family prefers
It works like this:
When you install a programmable thermostat, you can set various presets for different times of day. This means that in the winter, for instance, you can set the temperature much colder when your whole family is away at work or school, minimizing your energy consumption for those hours and giving your furnace a break.
You can set another preset for later in the day, and the thermostat will warm up your home in time for everyone to come home and be comfortable.
You can even set vacation overrides that let you change the settings temporarily for when you’re going to be out of town. Doesn’t get any easier than that!
Program Your Thermostat from Your Phone or Tablet
Did you know that programming your thermostat can be made even easier and more effective by controlling your thermostat from your smartphone, computer, iPad, or tablet? Installing a programmable thermostat and linking it to your mobile device or tablet gives you:
- Remote access to control your thermostat no matter where you are
- Free mobile apps from leading manufacturers like Honeywell and Lennox
- Alerts of unusually high or low temperatures
- Reminders when it’s time for air filter replacements
- Vacation settings for when you are out of town
- Display customization
- Complete compatibility with almost any system
- Weather alerts for your Kansas City area neighborhood
- And more!
How to Get the Most Out of Your Programmable Thermostat
When using a programmable thermostat, there are a few things you should keep in mind if you want to get the most out of it.
Make sure you install your programmable thermostat on an interior wall away from vents, doorways, windows, direct sunlight or anything else that would cause it to register an incorrect temperature.
Don’t adjust the thermostat too often. Try to shoot for a maximum of 4 settings: one for the early morning when you’re getting ready for work / school, one for when your home is empty, one for when everyone is home and one for when everyone is going to sleep.
If your home isn’t at the right temperature yet when you get home, don’t try to crank the thermostat up or down to heat or cool your home faster. The temperature your thermostat is set to doesn’t affect the rate of heating or cooling.
