A home heating and air conditioning system is made up of a number of different components. Each of these components must work properly and effectively in order to get the most efficient performance possible out of your home comfort systems. In the case of a thermostat you, as the operator of the system, must find the one best suited to your personal needs as well as your individual heating and air conditioning habits.
You may be satisfied using a manual or digital thermostat in your Portland home, and there is nothing wrong with that. A high quality thermostat of this type will be able to maintain the target temperature you set just fine. If you are interested in taking more control over the way in which you heat and cool your home, though, contact Cavalry Heating & Cooling today. We have the information you need to help decide if a programmable thermostat upgrade is right for you.
Programmable thermostats offer a number of benefits over manual and simple digital models. They allow you to create different heating and cooling programs based on a variety of factors, including what time you get home each day and even if you are away on vacation. Learning to use your programmable thermostat properly can help you boost the efficiency with which you heat and cool your home.
Using more basic thermostats you only have the option of setting and maintaining a temperature. This means that if you want your home to be warm when you return from work you must heat the house to that degree all day. Either that or come home to a chilly house and wait for temperatures to come up.
With a programmable thermostat you can keep temperatures more moderate when no one is home. Set the thermostat to kick into a higher gear before you get home for the day and you can enjoy immediate comfort when you arrive home without using much energy throughout the day. You can program your thermostat around work, day trips and even vacations in much the same way.
