Three Reasons Why You Should Update Your Thermostat


No matter what time of year that it is, most families are always looking for ways to lower their utility bills. During the winter, many families lower the heat and bundle up, and during the summer, they open their windows and use household fans. But did you know that there’s a way to set your household temperature at comfortable levels, and lower your bills?

A programmable thermostat is a great way to take control of your energy costs, and DASH Heating & Cooling is the leading provider of thermostat installation in Little Rock. We’re always a phone call away if you have any questions, and we also offer a free, in-home energy efficiency consultation to help you find other ways to lower your bills. Here are a few of the main benefits of installing a programmable thermostat in your home:

  1. Instant energy savings-The way that a programmable thermostat works is simple: you set it to adjust the temperature up or down for the times when you’re asleep or at work. If you set your thermostat correctly, you should see significant savings on your energy costs right away.

  2. Convenience-When it comes to Arkansas weather, you know that you can always expect the unexpected, and you may not always be at home when temperatures suddenly become unseasonably high or low. But with a programmable WIFI thermostat, you don’t have to be at home to adjust the temperature. When a big temperature change happens, you can adjust your household thermostat from your computer or smartphone before you get home.

  3. Extended life for your heat pump-By reducing your heat pump’s workload during off-peak hours, the unit is subjected to less routine wear and tear. The anticipated operational lifespan for heating and AC units is different between manufacturers and models, but you can usually expect a few additional years of service if your unit doesn’t constantly run at full capacity.
