4 Reasons to Own a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats, also called smart thermostats, are convenient additions to your home that can lower your energy bills, improve the efficiency of your HVAC unit, and help protect the environment. Unlike manual thermostats, smart thermostats are fully programmable, giving you more control and customization over the temperature of your home, both day and night.

Compatibility with Mobile Devices

Smart thermostats not only allow homeowners to remotely control temperatures, but they can also send system diagnostics and maintenance alerts to your mobile device, making it a convenient way to stay up to date with your HVAC unit. This compatibility also enables homeowners to adjust the temperature or turn off the HVAC unit from anywhere, using their mobile device. This is particularly useful when you are out of town and may have forgotten to adjust the thermostat before leaving. 


Unlike traditional thermostats, smart thermostats connect to wifi and are fully controllable via mobile devices. Depending on the model you select, many of the smart thermostats we offer have unique features, like voice activation with Siri or Alexa, live weather alerts, and even smart scheduling so your home is always at the perfect temperature. Everyone could use this level of convenience in their day-to-day life.

Save on Energy Bills 

Inefficient thermostat use can lead to a dramatic increase in energy bills. By upgrading to a smart thermostat, you can expect to save up to 20% on energy bills. Because these thermostats optimize your HVAC system, your system will be able to run more efficiently throughout the entire year. At Carolina Comfort Air, we offer a wide variety of smart thermostats for you to choose from, including models from Honeywell, Trane, Aprilaire, and Ecobee.

Environmentally Friendly

By improving the efficiency of your HVAC unit, smart thermostats help protect the environment by reducing the amount of emissions and energy consumption. Not only does this help reduce your energy bill, but it helps reduce the demand for fossil fuels, which are a main contributor to environmental issues around the globe. Smart thermostats are a great way to become more aware of your home’s environmental footprint, while improving your HVAC system’s efficiency.
