How to Get a Better Thermostat Without Breaking the Bank

August 18, 2016


When you need a new thermostat, you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars. Many budget-friendly models offer far more features than your grandparents’ thermostats, and they won’t deplete your savings. If the thermostat in your Daphne, Alabama, home could use an upgrade, follow these tips to make an economical choice.

Evaluate Your Lifestyle

Programmable options allow you to set the temperature throughout the day based on your schedule so that you cool your home only as needed. For example, you can program higher temperatures when you are away since there will be no need for cooler temperatures when no one is home. By doing so, you will be able to significantly reduce energy waste and leave more money in your wallet. If you haven’t yet done so, it is time to consider replacing your manual thermostat with a programmable model.

Look for Discounts

Like all products, thermostats occasionally go on sale. We often run promotions for various HVAC products, so keep an eye on our specials so that you can take advantage of a reduced price. Our prices are always affordable, but discounts and other offers will make it easier for you to achieve the comfort and efficiency you need in your home.

Buy Based on Features

Maybe you’re interested in using your thermostat to control your home’s zoned system, but you don’t need the unit to display the outdoor temperature and deliver the weather forecast. Make a list of the features you need in a thermostat, so you don’t spend on a model that offers more than what you want. Many options exist, so you’re sure to find a thermostat that fits your specifications.

We carry a variety of thermostats to suit every style and budget. Higher-end programmable or WiFi thermostats offer a lot of bells and whistles provide, but you will still save money with any programmable thermostat you choose.

A new thermostat can help you to save on energy costs and better control your HVAC system. To learn about our thermostats and installation process, call Keith Air Conditioning, Inc. at 251-476-3610.
