Let's Talk about thermostats

Everyone talks about the importance of a good air conditioning system.  All of that is great, but what they rarely talk about is the technology used to ensure it operates correctly. Your direct connection and control of your unit starts and ends with thermostats.


What does a ductless system, heat pump, and split system all have in common? They will not work without a thermostat. How else would the system know what temperate to heat or cool the home. The smallest part, the overlooked part, is often the most important. A proper thermostat should be able to regulate the temperature in your home or room and keep it at that temperature until you wish to change it.

As the technology in your air conditioning system advances so too does the technology in your thermostat.  Back in the day thermostats were controlled with a dial or temperature knob.  Today you can control and set the temperature in your home from the palm of your hand. Smart/Wi-Fi connected thermostats offer a ton of amazing new benefits to keep you comfortable in your home regardless of where you are.

Smart thermostat? tell me more

Here are a few reason to consider making the switch over to a smart thermostat and get out of the stone age.

  • Convenience: Some, not all, but some smart thermostats are able to self-program meaning that after a few days of being installed in your home the thermostat will be able to create the most efficient heating and cooling schedule, based on your preferences and day-to-day routine. Knowing when to turn up the heat or conjure the cooling will save you hundreds over the course of the year.

  • Efficiency: Having a smart thermostat allows you to preset certain temperatures for your home throughout the day. By doing this not only do you save about an average of 10% annually on energy cost, but you also never have to worry about running up the bill when no-one is home.

  • Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi is practically everywhere meaning you can control the thermostat in your home no matter where you are in the world. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection. How easy is that, huh?

  • Environmental Adjustment: Now if you don't mind spending a little extra you can get a little extra, some of the best smart thermostats have the ability to analyze your local weather conditions and make the necessary adjustments for you in real time, saving you money with the least input.
