Why Invest In a Programmable Thermostat?

Published by Luke Weiden

Perhaps you didn’t know the thermostat was invented in 1883, and that invention changed forever the way we heat and cool our homes and remain comfortable throughout the year.
As a service provider for HVAC in Chicago, at Deljo Heating & Cooling we know that today’s thermostats are a vast improvement over those 1883 models, and we believe that upgrading your thermostat is one of the best ways to ensure that your HVAC unit is working efficiently and effectively.
If you’re not yet convinced, here are four reasons why your friends at Deljo think that investing in a smart thermostat is something you should seriously consider.

Automatic temperature adjustments and energy savings

A programmable thermostat can be set so that the usage of your HVAC system drops during the day when no one is home and then returns to normal heating or cooling just before you return from work. That way, your indoor temperature will always be comfortable without changing the setting multiple times during the day.
In addition, automatic settings will have your unit running more efficiently, saving money on utility bills. There’s nothing better than seeing a reduction in utility costs, which is the main reason many busy homeowners turn to programmable thermostats.

At-a-glance information and WiFi capabilities

Programmable thermostats not only tell you room temperature but a lot of other things as well. They can remind you when filters need changing or let you know when there’s a problem that needs servicing.
Many modern programmable thermostats can also be connected to your smartphone or other wireless device, giving you instant access to your home’s system wherever you are. That way you can make a temperature adjustment if you’re working late or someone’s coming home early.

Zoned heating and cooling options

A programmable thermostat gives you the option of creating a zoned system with different temperature settings for separate areas of your home. That’s a great benefit if, for example, you prefer one temperature setting for sleeping and your kids prefer another. That way, everyone sleeps comfortably.

Stress-free vacations

With WiFi capability, you can adjust your temperature settings to give your HVAC a break while you’re away and arrive home to a comfortably cool or warm house.
These are just a few ways you can benefit from installation of a programmable thermostat, and for the finest HVAC service in Chicago, call Deljo Heating & Cooling today.
