You walk by your thermostat every single day and likely don’t realize how incredibly powerful it is. Since it controls your air conditioning system, your thermostat can have a huge impact on how comfortable your home feels. Here at Ierna’s Heating & Cooling, we wanted to let you know about how you could be able to improve your air conditioning with a new thermostat.
Digital Thermostats vs. Programmable Thermostats
Most homes now use digital thermostats to control the temperature inside the home. Digital thermostats offer easy and precise control of your comfort systems and they are also very reliable. But for homeowners that are interested in taking more control over their air conditioning, programmable thermostats are the way to go.
Programmable thermostats allow you to set different periods of activity or inactivity for your air conditioning system. For example, you can set your thermostat to turn off your air conditioning system when you leave for work and then have it turn the AC back on 30 minutes before you get home. This way, you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn off your air conditioning system when you leave in the morning. Not only is this more convenient but it could save you the energy that you might spend on those days when you do forget.
For even more control and access to your AC system, there are now wifi-enabled thermostats. These systems are connected to the internet and allow you to access your thermostats from anywhere with an internet connection—even on your smart phone. Let’s say that you for vacation but forget to turn off your AC. You can just log-in to your thermostat from your phone and shut off your AC manually. This is also ideal for people that own vacation rentals. If your latest tenants leaves without shutting off the AC, you can just hop on the internet and shut it off from your home.
