If you are planning on going away on vacation for spring break – or even sometime later in the year – you may want to set your home’s thermostat at a level that saves you money while you’re away. After all, your couch doesn’t need to enjoy lower temperatures when it’s scorching hot outside and you’re not home. But you also don’t want candles to melt or electronic devices to suffer, either. Plus, a home’s furniture holds onto heat, which makes it more difficult to cool a house down if the temperature has been left at too high a setting for long periods of time.
We’ve mentioned some of the benefits of Programmable Thermostats before, but can’t speak enough to their convenience and efficiency, especially if you and your family plan on being away from home for an extended period of time. Pre-programming your HVAC unit’s thermostat is one of the easiest and least expensive actions you can take to save energy and money.
If you are not sure how to change the settings on your programmable thermostat, call us to see if we can help.

We’ll also make sure you know how to re-schedule it for your regular, daily schedule, too.
