As the cold weather takes over for the season, it’s important for your family to be comfortable. At the same time, you want to be careful about your energy expenses when heating your home. A programmable thermostat offers a modern solution to the age-old drama of thermostat wars.


Our team at Furnace Doctors in Little Canada can install a programmable thermostat that you can program to turn on and off when you need it. This helpful guide will help you decide if a programmable thermostat is right for your home.


Automatic Temperature Adjustment

A programmable thermostat allows you to program the thermostat in your home so that your thermostat will work to heat and cool your home only when you need it. This means in the summer, your HVAC system will only cool your house when you are at home and raise the temperature automatically when you are gone.


The same is true with heating your home during Minnesota’s long, cold winter months. These thermostats allow you to better regulate the temperature in your home, saving you money and reducing your footprint.


Wireless Thermostat Options

One of the newest innovations in programmable thermostats is wifi capability. These wifi capable thermostats connect to your home’s wireless Internet and allow you to communicate with your device from any place at any time. This allows you not only to adjust your heat or cooling from anywhere in the world but to monitor it as well. You can use your computer, phone, or another device to log on and adjust your thermostat.


Once you determine your energy usage goals, you can determine what temperature works best for your home’s comfort and adjust your thermostat accordingly.


Alter the optimum temperature in your home for various activities:

●        Sleeping

●        School or work hours

●        Evening hours
