The Advantages of Programmable Thermostats

As the brains of your HVAC system, your thermostat is only as good as the program it's running. In recent years, programmable thermostats have become very popular, and business owners have been making the switch from traditional to programmable.

The main benefits of a programmable thermostat are:

Complete Control

Programmable thermostats offer the power to achieve the perfect temperature settings. For example, a digital thermostat can be programmed to increase the temperature while your building is unoccupied, and then automatically decreases the temperature so the building will be cool and comfortable when occupied. By enabling tenants to set the temperature however they wish, programmable thermostats are great for those who want to tweak their temperature settings as finely as possible.

Energy Savings

The upgrade to a programmable thermostat is an investment that will recoup its cost in a short period of time. When properly programmed, a digital thermostat will enable business owners to use significantly less energy. Whether the goal is to save money or to reduce the unit's impact on the environment, programmable thermostats can go a long way toward reducing energy consumption.


Some models of programmable thermostats have controllers that allow them to be accessed from remote locations. By accessing the device via a smartphone you can save trips to the building to change heating or cooling settings. For commercial property managers, this convenience is one of the greatest advantages of programmable thermostats.

Even if your current thermostat is operating well, you may wish to make the switch to take advantage of all that programmable thermostats have to offer. For answers to all your heating and cooling questions, call Maxwell, we'll show you how easy it is to save energy with a programmable thermostat.
