You’ve probably seen countless advertisements about why you should update your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system (HVAC).  While it may be true that you can lower your energy costs with a new system, there is a less expensive option that you should consider.  Are you aware that updating your HVAC thermostat with a newer model can benefit you in several ways?  Thermostat options like system programming, status reports, and smartphone operation offer convenience and savings.

If you already have a need for a new thermostat and require assistance with installing it correctly, call Design Air at (951) 379-3362.  Our team offers HVAC services of all types throughout Beaumont, Corona, Riverside, San Bernardino, Fontana, Redlands, Loma Linda, Yucaipa, Ontario, Temecula and surrounding cities.

Programmable Thermostats

Some older style thermostats have programmable features.  However, they are much harder to program than modern ones.  Instead of scrolling through partial sets of numbers and alphabets on a tiny screen, newer style thermostats are more user-friendly.  Many advanced thermostats have PC and mobile apps that allow you to program your thermostat on a larger, colorful screen that is easy to understand.

The ability to program your thermostat enables you to save by reducing your energy usage to specific times when you need it.  Also, the reduction of use of your HVAC system prolongs it.

Status Updates

Sporadic maintenance is one reason HVAC systems require major repairs.  New thermostats will alert you when regular maintenance like filter cleanings/changes are needed or when a significant problem exists.

Thermostat Apps

Controlling your HVAC system from your smartphone or tablet gives you the convenience of setting your home to a comfortable temperature before you arrive home.  It also gives you peace of mind if you forget to turn the system off.
