The Benefits of a Digital Thermostat

The popularity of the new programmable thermostats is growing exponentially because they offer significant cost savings. As the cost of energy rises, it pays to try to reduce its use in any possible way. Programmable thermostats are adjustable and can be set to the temperature and time of day that works best for your whole household.  Plus, if you are still using a manual thermostat, it is simple to add a programmable one as an easy do-it-yourself project.

When you use a programmable thermostat, you can raise or lower the temperature in your home to the comfort you want. For every degree you raise or lower, you save up to 2% on your energy costs. As well, you don’t need to have your AC on high while no one is at home. A programmable thermostat can be set to a schedule that works with your daily routine. It will keep you comfortable with warm or cool air when you are home and reduce your energy usage when you are away. In addition, a programmable thermostat is capable of helping you maintain a consistent temperature in every area and room in your home.

When Is the Best Time for an AC Installation?

Although any time is the right time for a new AC unit if yours dies in the middle of a Florida summer, some seasons are more favorable than others to get a new system. You may want to shop for your new air conditioner in the winter and be prepared to purchase it in the spring. Buying your new system in an off-season is easier to find what you’re looking for and easier to hire the company you want.  You are avoiding the last-minute summer rush! In the spring the weather is usually not hot enough to be uncomfortable inside. You may even consider many of the days, “open-window weather days.”

If your area tends to warm up in the spring, shop even earlier—say, at the end of winter—when you’re ready to buy and have a new system installed. In fact, you can even buy your new system in the winter and have it installed later. There’s no hard-and-fast rule that dictates buying and installing an HVAC system at the same time. That frees you up to buy your unit when you can find the price that best fits your budget needs.
