Thermostat Services Peterson Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling Grand Junction, COYou have seen all the commercials about thermostats are making a comeback. But why do people suddenly care about programmable thermostats? And, what’s a “smart” thermostat?

The short answer:  “smart” or “programmable” thermostats are money saving machines.

We all do it: step out of the house and forget to turn the air up or down. With the crazy temperature swings in Grand Junction and the Western Colorado area, it is easy to waste money on utilities. These increased costs make us really feel the crunch.

Most of us spend a significant portion of our days outside the home, either at work or school. What is your furnace, boiler, or cooling system doing while you are gone? It’s still running – even when it doesn’t need to be.

What about at night, when you are sleeping? Do you find yourself getting up to adjust the thermostat? When your heating or cooling system is not providing you with your desired temperature, it is costing you money.

Right now, the home service industry has plentiful smart thermostat offerings to fit every home and budget.

Benefits of a Programmable Thermostat

You are the Boss: Many homeowners are worried that a smart thermostat means losing control. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Base models let you select different temperatures for certain times of the day. Middle-of-the-road thermostats let you control your home’s temperature from your phone. Deluxe models learn your habits, adjust to outside temperature swings, and even talk to you. But, the same remains true no matter which smart thermostat you choose – YOU are always in control.

Energy Efficiency: The main draw to smart thermostats is energy efficiency. You may have the greatest heating or cooling system in the world, but if it is running 24/7, it is destroying your utility budget. Installing an affordable smart thermostat is one of the quickest ways to save money. In fact, Nest thermostat users have found that their devices pay for themselves after only two years.

At Peterson Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drains we will help you choose the right thermostat to fit your household’s specific needs. We take into account your general indoor comfort preferences as well as your budget. You will be given recommendations on the brands we trust in our own homes. If you are ready to go ahead with the service, we will install your new programmable thermostat to work seamlessly with your indoor comfort system.
