Programming Your Thermostat for Summer Savings


How to Program your Thermostat to Save Money in the Summer

Imagine walking through the front door of your Springfield home to a comfortably cool environment while still saving money on your energy bills, and you’ll understand why programmable thermostats have become so popular. With a programmable thermostat installed by One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning of Springfield, you can control the temperature of your home whether you’re at home or away.

The secret to saving up to 10 percent or more of your cooling bill with a programmable thermostat lies in selecting the right model, installing it safely and correctly and programming your thermostat effectively. At One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning of Springfield, we can help ensure that you get the greatest AC energy savings, with a thermostat that presets temperatures to work with the way that you live.

Basic models let you program up to four different temperature settings for different days of the week. You can raise your AC temperature 10 to 15 degrees while you’re away from home and schedule the AC to lower the temperature by the time that you’re home again. Wi-Fi connected models give you remote operation by linking the thermostat to your computer, tablet or mobile phone.

The newest technologies in programmable thermostats are those operated by proportional integral derivative (PID) controllers. These “smart” devices keep track of your settings and compare them to the actual temperatures in your home. They “learn” how to make adjustments so that your home maintains an ideal temperature to within one half of a degree.

Installing and setting up programmable thermostats is just one of the many HVAC services that we offer at One Hour Heating & Conditioning of Springfield.
