How much does it cost to get a thermostat installed?
This comes down to whether or not you have the thermostat already, or you need to buy one. In most cases, you can get a programmable thermostat for about $100-$300. More expensive models will come with additional features.
From there, you’ll need to call our team to schedule service, and we’ll send an experienced HVAC technician out to your home to install the new thermostat. The cost of this service depends on a number of factors: the thermostat, your HVAC systems, and more. Call us for a quote.
Why upgrade to a smart thermostat?
“Smart” thermostats (sometimes known as programmable thermostats) have several benefits that make them appealing to homeowners. Let’s break down why you should make the switch:
Smart thermostats can be set in advance to adjust the temperature depending on a number of factors. Most often, it’s time. If you always get back home from work at 4:50 p.m., you can set the thermostat to begin cooling your home down at 4:30 p.m., so that you return to comfortable bliss.
Smart thermostats are able to save homeowners money by automating a lot of what was manual with an older dial thermostat. Let’s face it: as humans, we’re pretty bad at remembering to do stuff. When it comes to turning on-and-off the AC when we leave the house for that day, that’s doubly true.
Programmable thermostats can be set to automatically adjust the temperature depending on the time of day, so you don’t need to remember to adjust the system yourself. That automation alone can save you significant money on your next energy bill.
Picture this: you’re headed out in the family car on vacation. Then, it hits you: “Did I leave the AC on?” In the days before smart thermostats, this would have meant one of two things: either a u-turn at the next intersection, or accepting that you’re just going to burn money on cooling a home no one is in.
However, today, the answer is much easier. Most programmable thermostats can be controlled from your smartphone, which means adjusting the temperature the system is set to is a snap. Now, the only thing you’ll have to stress about on the family road trip is your child kicking the back of your seat.

What’s the difference between a smart thermostat and a programmable thermostat?
These two terms are often used interchangeably. However, programmable thermostats can also refer to a class of thermostats that incorporate scheduled temperature changes (such as your home getting cooler at 4:30 p.m.) without the internet-connected bells-and-whistles of a true smart thermostat.

Track your energy usage
Knowledge is power. Smart thermostats are able, through their accompanying web and mobile apps, to give you detailed information about your energy usage. For example, you may find that you use far less energy on cooling in June than May, and can adjust your habits accordingly.
