ICM Air Conditioning knows you want to get the most out of your air conditioning and heating equipment. Taking simple and affordable steps to upgrade the products that work with your main a/c and heating unit can save you money and prolong the life of your air conditioning and heating equipment. Since raising or lowering the temperature even a few degrees in your home takes a huge amount of energy, having a programmable thermostat and learning how to control it can save you up to 15% on your utility bills. People rarely use thermostat devices correctly as they find it difficult to operate, but it’s really not that hard. You want to look at the scheduling features with programmable options like wake time, sleep time, leave and return time and learn how to use them. ICM Air Conditioning has qualified and trained technicians that will show you how to manage your thermostat so you can save money and take care of your air conditioning and heating equipment better.

Some Things To Think About When Choosing A Thermostat With Programmable Features:
  1. It should function automatically – Program your thermostat to shut down the heat and air-conditioning automatically when leaving for work during the week and set it to turn back on minutes before you expect to return and.
  2. If you are under the covers and sleeping, you don’t need as much heating or cooling. Being able to program the thermostat to turn off and return to “awake” mode 20  to 30 minutes before your alarm goes off in the morning will help with this. You can even open a window in your home during summers if it’s cooler outside at night to save even more money.
  3. If you’re in a very cold climate and you’re worried about your pipes freezing, you don’t want the temp to fall below 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. You don’t want to shut the system down completely if you’re leaving pets in your home so they will be comfortable and happy when you return.

Having the ability to use this programmable feature for these reasons clearly show you why having a programmable thermostat can definitely save you money and if you’re not using the unit as much, it saves your air conditioning and heating equipment from having to be replaced sooner than it should.
