4 Tips To Utilize Your Thermostat Correctly

June 26, 2023 | Blog

Your thermostat and air conditioner are the dynamic duo that provide your home with cool temperatures. Without each other, the Mississippi heat would be an uninvited guest inside your residence. One of the main ways to get your HVAC system running efficiently is to take advantage of all your thermostat’s features. Your programmable thermostat can be utilized to benefit your home in many ways.

Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning is here to tackle any HVAC problem inside your Meridian home! With over 20 years of local experience, you can trust that your home systems are in good hands. We’ve compiled a guide to help you understand your thermostat and how to effectively use it for your home.

How To Effectively Use Your Programmable Thermostat

Many modern thermostats come with programmable settings. This setting is a key feature that offers a variety of benefits to your home. Using this device efficiently can make it easier to achieve indoor comfort.

1. Program A Schedule

With our busy lives, it’s easy to forget little tasks, such as changing the temperature on your thermostat when you leave for work or other activities. Programmable thermostats allow you to create a pre-set schedule for altering your indoor temperatures. Not only will this keep your home comfortable, but it will also save energy and lower utility costs.

2. Change The Settings

Your thermostat settings tell the device how to heat and cool your home. If the controls are set to “on,” the blower will run even if the desired temperature has been reached. Changing your thermostat to “auto” will turn the system off once your home has been adequately heated or cooled. This setting will prevent energy waste, saving you money on your monthly energy bill.

3. Adjust The Temperature

The smaller the difference is between indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your utility bill will be! According to the U.S. Department of Energy, turning your thermostat back 7°-10°F can save you around 10% on heating and cooling costs.

While you’re away from home, you can make your home warmer or cooler depending on the season. This method will prevent high amounts of energy from being used when they can’t make you comfortable.

4. Schedule AC Thermostat Repair When Necessary

Every home system needs a little TLC here and there. As it grows older, your thermostat may experience issues that affect its performance. The device may show signs that repairs are needed. A few to look out for are:

  • AC won’t turn on
  • Thermostat forgets programmed settings
  • Room temperature doesn’t match thermostat settings
  • Your AC is short cycling
  • Thermostat has no power

When these problems occur, your system can’t function effectively. Your home may not feel comfortable, or secondary issues may begin to form. A professional technician can inspect your thermostat and conduct any necessary repairs. This service will have your HVAC system operating at peak performance for your convenience.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Highly Recommend Using Heblon

My AC wouldn’t turn on so I called Heblon . It was a Sunday and from calling the office to the engineer arriving took about 45 minutes. The engineer was professional and gave me excellent feedback on the issue. Repaired within 45 minutes and couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommend using Heblon, and will definitely be using them from now on.

Jerry is part of the family now. He is always professional, knowledgeable, and able to fix the problem. I really appreciate the great customer service I get from the time I call the office, the prompt response, the timely arrivals, the updates via text message, and the follow up after the job is complete. I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Heblon. My family is grateful for them.
