Yes! Thermostats range from simple-to-use to more sophisticated. Many people opt for convenience, comfort and energy efficiency when selecting a thermostat. Depending on your criteria, there are several options to choose from when shopping for thermostats. You’ll find that thermostats are designed as manual, programmable or smart/Wi-Fi.
Manual thermostats are typically found in older homes. They are simple to use, but they are limited on energy savings unless you’re diligent about changing settings as the temperature changes. Just because you have a manual thermostat doesn’t mean you have to stick with that option.
Programmable thermostats adjust the temperature automatically throughout the day. They can save you as much as 33 percent on your heating costs, and up to 15-25 percent on cooling. Advanced models can switch back and forth between heating and air conditioning during seasonal transitions. Their digital interfaces are easy to operate and they can be set to a schedule of your choosing.
Smart/Wi-Fi thermostats improve energy efficiency and allow you to control the temperature from your computer, tablet or smartphone. How cool is that??
Last is thermostat compatibility. Identify the type of system you have and thermostats will be clearly labeled with the appropriate application. Or, you can call Green Valley Cooling & Heating at 520-625-1234 and we would be happy to explain your options.
