How to Choose the Right Thermostat

Do you have an older thermostat for your HVAC system? If your thermostat does not have programming or remote access, you are missing out of some phenomenal features that offer convenience and energy savings for your home. If you are ready to upgrade your thermostat, here are some features to consider that will help you choose the right model for your needs.


First and foremost, you want a thermostat that is programmable. This one feature can save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bills if you use it correctly. You can program your thermostat to use less energy during hours you are sleeping or away from home, while keeping your home comfortable.

Remote Access

Many thermostats now offer Wi-Fi access. This allows you to control your thermostat from a computer or even your smartphone. You can turn your thermostat up or down when you are away from home, helping save you even more money on energy costs.

Auto Changeover

When the days are warm and the nights are cool, you want your thermostat to know when to send heat and when to turn on the A/C. An auto changeover switch allows your thermostat to use both heat and air conditioning to maintain the preferred temperature in your home.

Keyboard Lock

Don’t want your kids turning up the A/C to high when you are not at home? Choose a thermostat with a keyboard lock to leave changing the temperature to the people who pay the bills.

The new features available on today’s thermostats make it easier to keep your home climate controlled while using less energy. Talk to your local HVAC service company to learn more about the models available and for professional installation.
