If you’re not a fan of extreme weather conditions, the fall may just be your favorite time of the year. The falling temperature helps you forget the heat of the summer while not being too cold for comfort. More importantly, it’s that time of the year when you invite your AC repair technicians to ensure you can freely switch your HVAC system from cooling to heating. But do you need a programmable thermostat for your AC unit during the fall?
Adjust To the Unpredictability
Autumn’s temperatures have a knack for fluctuating unpredictably. It’s not uncommon to wake up to a chilly morning, only to discover that you’re feeling very uncomfortable without your AC in the afternoon. To survive the fall, you must prepare your HVAC system to adapt to a wide range of temperatures. There is no better way to do that than to upgrade your thermostat to a programmable model.
Heat or Cool When Appropriate
As mentioned earlier, the heating and cooling components of your HVAC system must be in perfect condition during the fall. To achieve maximum energy savings, set your thermostat to a higher temperature while you’re away and program it to bring the temperature down before you get home. You might need to follow the weather forecasts to set your thermostat during the fall.
Harness the Smart Component of Your Thermostat
Perhaps the weather forecast didn’t quite get the predictions right, smart thermostats allow you to change the temperature of your home from your phone. Whether the weather is warmer or cooler than predicted, you can instruct your thermostat to set your house at the desired temperature, at any desired time. Cool, isn’t it?
A programmable thermostat can help you keep your home comfortable while lowering your energy costs and reducing the need to have your AC serviced frequently. Installing one in your home may be the best AC maintenance decision you’ve made in a while. Call our experts at Waychoff’s Air Conditioning to help you install one today.
