“Why Should I Upgrade?”

We get this question a lot here at Speedy Air Conditioning Service. Many homeowners reason that there’s nothing really wrong with their thermostat. Sure, it’s old but it’s not giving them any problems. In actuality, you could greatly benefit from a new thermostat system.

Your thermostat has two jobs. It monitors the temperature in the area that it’s installed and turns on your air conditioner according to programmed settings or a manual dial. It’s important to have a great thermostat because of this. If you still have a digital, programmable thermostat in your home it’s probably getting the job done but it’s not keeping your home at the optimal comfort level or helping you save energy. You need to upgrade to a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats work with you while older thermostats force you to work around them. Here are some compelling reasons to upgrade.


Do you have your thermostat settings pre-programmed? Maybe you have your thermostat set to shut off shortly after you leave for work in the morning and set to turn on again shortly before you arrive home. This is a great system until there’s a change in your regular schedule? What if you run errands after work? Grab a bite with a coworker? You’re wasting energy by allowing your HVAC system to heat or cool your home when you’re not there.

When you have a smart thermostat, you can change the temperature of your home remotely. If you’d like to change your thermostat when you’re not at home, you can do so from your computer or smartphone. This is one of the best ways to save energy.

Energy Savings

What makes smart thermostats so “smart” is the learning capabilities they have—they’re designed to save you money! Smart thermostats monitor your heating and cooling habits over time. They can even highlight opportunities to run your system more efficiently if you allow these capabilities. A smart thermostat will pay off in lower energy bills.
