3 Benefits of Using a Programmable Thermostat

For the modern homeowner, energy efficiency is incredibly important, prompting the use of smart, programmable thermostats. Programmable thermostats are designed in such a way that they can adjust your home's temperature based on pre-programmed settings. Here are 3 benefits of programmable thermostats over manual models.

1. They Give You More Control Over Your House
Using programmable thermostats in Toronto will make it easier to take control over your home's temperature. Certain models even have Wi-Fi connectivity, making it possible to control them remotely. By installing such thermostats, you will be able to change the temperature of your home right from your phone, even when you're not home. Thanks to these features, programmable thermostats give you way more control over your home's heating and cooling unit than manual options.

2. They Use Better Technology
Certain models of programmable thermostats can be configured to monitor your heating habits over time. These thermostats will then fluctuate the temperatures of your house as the day gets warmer or colder. Others are designed to sense as you enter a room and can change up its temperature to the levels you find most comfortable. They can also provide more information on how much energy you use each month to cool or heat your home, and may even send reminders when there's an impending maintenance check. This makes them much more efficient than manual thermostats.

3. They Work for Places with Irregular Climate Patterns
If you live in a region with unpredictable weather, programmable thermostats will make it easier to heat and cool your home without forcing you to adjust the heat levels manually. These thermostats can be programmed to fluctuate temperatures to match the changes in the day's weather. This way, your HVAC system won't work at full potential when it doesn't need to, saving you money on your energy bills.

It’s Time For an Upgrade 
Having a professional come in and install a programmable thermostat in Toronto will ensure heating and cooling your home doesn't cost too much money. It will also save you the hassle of having to change temperature levels yourself during the day. Programmable thermostats are, therefore, a closer step toward the future, and toward an energy-efficient, smart home.

  • Outstanding service all around. (Thanks so very much!) I would highly recommend you to family and friends. All of you were knowledgeable and professional in every way. The technicians were efficient, helped moved a few heavy boxes, and were careful in my house. I especially appreciate that Jack, who gave me good options, helped my choose what was appropriate for my house (to replace my 25 year old furnace) and at a very fair price. Thanks again!

  • We needed a new boiler fast and they were faster than the other places we got quotes from, they were more sincere, less sales-oriented , and they had more technical knowledge and were able to explain things in layman's terms. They were transparent in their pricing and everything came out as estimated after the boiler was replaced. They didn't try to sell us maintenance packages or anything like that, just gave us the service we needed. We feel lucky to have stumbled upon them.

FAQ

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.
