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.

Client Testimonials

  • First experience was on New Year's Day, 2020, when furnace stopped. Called A-Plus and they had a rep (Jack) out quickly. He did some troubleshooting. He wasn't giving BS. Gave me options on repairing or replacing. Non-biased, no pressure. I chose replace and it was done the next day. Good experience all around. Second experience was early March, 2021 when a harsh chemical smell emanating from the furnace room, and pushed through the HVAC venting, permeated the house. Very concerning. Was late night, called A-Plus, immediately answered and suggested some safety moves for the evening. Booked a visit for the morning. Jack again came and assessed the issue and advised where the smell came from (outside). Again, very professional, quick, no BS, good guy. Completely satisfied with the service after often being given the BS treatment from other service providers for the house. Would definitely recommend.

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!

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • 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”.
