3. PROVIDE MORE CONSISTENT TEMPERATURE 

You may feel like it’s impossible to achieve that perfect indoor climate, but when you ditch your outdated thermostat for a programmable device, your comfort will be on another level! Smart thermostats learn from temperatures you have previously chosen, and automatically adjust to create a personalized heating and cooling schedule – combating hot or cold spots in your home before they even happen!

4. PROMOTE BETTER AIR QUALITY 

Did you know that according to the EPA, poor indoor air quality is the single largest environmental threat we’re currently facing? The air in your home is full of pollutants like dust, pollen, and if you have pets – dander and hair. Ignoring these contaminants can have negative effects on your health and well-being, especially if you suffer from allergies or asthma. While a programmable thermostat does not actively remove these pollutants from the air, they do provide the capability to monitor their levels, and some even provide suggestions for measures you can take to upgrade your indoor air quality. Let Technical Hot and Cold empower you to breathe easier – Your health is on the line.

5. OPTIMIZE YOUR SYSTEM’S PERFORMANCE 

If your HVAC system is older or performing inefficiently, don’t jump into installing a brand-new one right away…the problem could be with your thermostat. Programmable devices reduce the workload on your system, helping your equipment operate at its best. Or, if you think your unit is in need of replacement, our certified technicians can inspect your system and give you an expert opinion on your best course of action. Whether you need a thermostat upgrade, a new unit installation, or both, Technical Hot and Cold will take care of the entire upgrade from start to finish, all you have to do is call!

6. MAXIMIZE ZONED HEATING AND COOLING

If your home utilizes a zoned heating and cooling system, this means that multiple thermostats are wired into a control panel, which then operate the dampers in your forced air system. Every thermostat is constantly reading the temperature of the zone they operate, and based on the read, they will open or close the dampers according to the settings you have previously programmed. Smart thermostats are essential for ultimate control over each climate zone. Without them you couldn’t truly customize each temperature throughout your home. Ready to give yourself maximum control and comfort in your space? Let’s get started on a thermostat solution for your zoned HVAC system today. Or, if you don’t currently have a zoned system but are interested in having one installed – we can handle that too! Schedule a consultation, or read more about our zoned interior capabilities.

7. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SUN

If you’re all about living by the sun, a programmable thermostat definitely has advantages you’ll appreciate. Capitalize on the warmth of the sun by easily adjusting your cooling schedule to compensate for the extra heat. Likewise, during the winter, you can minimize your heating power and let those few bright days we experience help warm up your home. This helps you cut down energy usage, and give your system a rest – preventing wear and tear, and saving you money!

8. THEY’RE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

The fact that smart thermostats significantly boost the efficiency of your HVAC system is not the only way in which they prove to be an eco-friendly choice. Unlike manual options, they are completely free of mercury – which has been proven to cause health issues in humans and animals, along with severe environmental effects. We know how important protecting the health and safety of your home and family is, because we all have homes and families of our own. When you choose Technical Hot and Cold to upgrade your thermostat, we’ll treat your home like it’s ours, and make sure that every aspect of your health and ease of living that relates to your HVAC system is addressed.
