A new Air Conditioner & Furnace!

Be Thermostat Smart in every season

With the changing of the seasons, there is always a dance going on between using heat, cooling or fresh air to regulate the temperature in our homes.

We cling to and struggle to let go of the hot summer days, but the shorter days and cooler nights leave us continually trying to get comfortable.

With the escalating hydro and gas prices, utilities that regulate how we want to feel is a dilemma. We grew up with rules that we adapted to save money and kept the woolly socks on longer than we would like!

"Don't turn on the heat before Thanksgiving." "Air conditioning never goes on before the holiday long weekend."

We grew up compromising the quality of life in our homes to save a few dollars. With technology, there are other ways now to mitigate the desire to save energy and yet not compromise your comfort.

Think Thermostat

Thermostats are the regulators that we use to check in to confirm how we are feeling. Like how we check the weather network to determine if what we think is consistent with the truth, we do the same with a thermostat.

When a thermostat functions efficiently, generally, the efficiency of your heating and cooling will also. Given the multitude of options that are out there, deciding what type is best can be challenging. If you are ready to get some help with regulating your indoor comfort while being energy conscious, consider a new thermostat.

Here are the four types of thermostats and their features to consider (if you are ready to treat yourself to the best energy efficient and sure-comfort option available, skip right down to the fourth SMART choice)

Basic: Non-Programmable Thermostat

This type of thermostat means that you can only adjust the temperature manually. A non-programmable is a basic choice that may be sufficient for people who are generally always home. If you are rarely leaving your house, and enjoy the routine of continually being aware of your temperature, this may be all you need.

Convenient: Programmable Thermostat

Being able to pre-program and adjust the temperature during the day or night based on your lifestyle, work, sleep, and family times can work well for families. If you know your home is empty during a 9-5 workday, a programmable thermostat allows you to save some dollars by automatically having it set back a few degrees yet warmed up before you get home. A programmable thermostat is especially helpful in a climate that has drastic seasonal changes that impact your indoor temperature. Knowing you can wake up on a cold morning and the heat has kicked on before you rise, is as lovely as that first sip of coffee.

Controllable: Wifi Thermostat

A Wifi thermostat is also programmable, but it connects to a wifi network accessible by your phone or computer. It can be regulated remotely, which can be so convenient if you arrive home earlier or forgot to change the program for the circumstances or weather. There is a great relief knowing you have full control over your home's temperature, even when you are not there.

SOOOOO Super Smart: Smart Thermostat

Welcome to your all-inclusive option in thermostats. The smart thermostat is your comfort companion that easily integrates with all of your home automation and electronics. It learns your living habits, knows when you rise and arrives home from work, and then adjusts the thermostat accordingly. This thermostat is so smart that it looks for your life patterns and stores the information to optimize and enhance the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. It will work alongside your Alexa, Google Home or other assistants with ease with voice control options. Like the wifi thermostat, it is also programmable remotely, conveniently through its exclusive mobile app. Though a SMART thermostat is a more expensive option than others, its high efficiency will save you the money within a year or two of its integration.
