You know what’s worse than coming home to a freezing cold house during a cold snap? Nothing. Except maybe having your furnace say, “Nope” in the middle of your fancy holiday meal or while your buddies are over for a major sporting event or any other time when it’s cold outside.
If you’re like most homeowners, you’ve cussed at your HVAC system a time or two because it just seems so inconsistent. Maybe your living room feels perfectly cozy in the winter—but your nose is numb when you wake up in the morning. Or your kids complain about their room being sooooo hoooooot in July—but you’re walking around the rest of the house in a hoodie. Super frustrating, right? Fortunately, there’s a relatively quick solution: Simply adjust your HVAC dampers.
These days, most people are all about gadgets. We went from smart phones to smart everything in pretty short order, and we just love when our electronics make our lives easier and our day-to-day tasks faster. As Austin HVAC professionals, we keep our eyes on all the technological advances designed to keep our customers’ homes more comfortable and their wallets fatter. Chief among those gadgets is the programmable thermostat.
