Controlling the comfort of your home
The thermostat is the “brain” of your Heating, Ventilation, and Cooling (HVAC) system. There are different kinds of thermostats to fit your needs, from a standard set-back version to its more advanced touch-screen counterpart.
By setting your thermostat so that your HVAC system will operate continually, you can help to save energy costs. Attempting to save energy by turning off or substantially setting back the thermostat will reduce comfort and save little energy when factoring in the extended period of time that will be required for the system to recover. Instead, the system should be allowed to run continually in either cool or heat mode on a daily basis.
- Upgrade to a Wi-Fi thermostat – Put yourself firmly in control of the your heating and cooling requirements 24/7
- Don’t turn off the system during high-heat days, it’s designed to maintain temperatures rather than attain them.
