What's the Best Thermostat to Use with My System?

Thermostats and HVAC energy efficiency

Improving energy efficiency is made simple with a smart thermostat.

Energy efficiency is at the forefront of every business and homeowner's list of concerns. We are all looking for ways to reduce our utility bills. In your search for solutions, you may have heard some things about the latest and greatest thermostats on the market. You might be concerned about their price tag or worry that they are too complicated. Never fear - keep reading to learn what you need to know in order to choose the best thermostat to use with your HVAC system.

Programmable thermostats are the newest thing in climate control. They allow you to schedule what your furnace and air conditioner will do each day. With a programmable thermostat, you can set your system to run less when nobody is home and to bring the temperature back to a more comfortable level by the time your family returns from school and work. You can even program it to run at a minimum when you leave for vacation.

Perhaps the best part of the latest programmable thermostat is that you can control them from your smartphone. Here are a few situations that might sound familiar:

  • Forgot to reprogram the system before you left for vacation?

  • Want to see if your kids are messing with the thermostat when they're home alone?

  • Worried that the house is too warm for your pets?

All you have to do is log in on your smartphone and change the thermostat settings. No matter where you are in the world, your home's energy efficiency is right in the palm of your hand.
