5 Benefits to a Digital Thermostat

Why Consider a Digital, Programmable Thermostat?

Still have your old mercury stat on the wall that’s from the 70′s? Many times when something just works we leave it alone, but it could be costing you money you could spend elsewhere. Here’s a fun infographic to share the benefits of going digital:

What to look for in a good digital stat?

Programmable:
Don’t waste your money going digital and get a stat you can’t program. You may think you don’t want to hassle with it, but your trusted a/c contractor can help you set it up and show you how to make adjustments when needed. You’ll be happy you did when you walk in the door from a hot summer day and your house is a cool, refreshing oasis!

Energy Saving Mode:
Since the point of going digital is saving money, make sure the thermostat you choose has some sort of energy saving feature, like an ECO mode or an Auto Away feature. Some stats can even sense if your home or not!

Simple Easy-To-Use interface:
What ever you choose make sure the Interface or menus make sense to you, they should be simple and easy to use. Remember, a digital thermostat is suppose to make your life easier, not complicate it!

Professional Installation:
When in doubt have your trusted contractor install and setup the stat for you. This ensures you don’t cross live wires and blow a fuse and that you don’t miss anything. Remember this is what they do every day, take advantage of their experience!

Features You Want:
Make a list of what you want your new stat to do. Want to control your home’s temp from your smart phone? How about check your energy usage and settings right on your computer? Your equipment may have multiple stages of performance, will the new stat take advantage of those? Will the screen size and numbers be large and clear enough to see? Let your trusted a/c contractor know what your looking for and they can show you your options for controlling your home comfort while saving energy!
