What is a programmable thermostat?
A programmable thermostat is linked to your home’s HVAC system in order to adjust the temperature in your home. You can program the unit to maintain a consistent temperature or to adjust temperature control at specified times throughout the day.
A programmable unit allows you to cut energy costs by not having your HVAC unit run while you are not home. You can also program the thermostat to go into energy-saving mode and turn on an hour before you arrive home or shut off an hour after you go to bed at night.
We install quality and energy efficient programmable thermostats that are completely compatible with your existing HVAC unit.

What are some signs that your thermostat needs repairs?
If your thermostat is reading a low or high temperature but your furnace or air conditioning unit is constantly running, this could be a sign of a malfunction within the thermostat.
Here are a few signs that your thermostat may be malfunctioning:
- Blinking error code
- Blank display screen
- Furnace or air conditioner will not turn on
- Room temperature is higher or lower than what the thermostat reads
A screen that is blinking with an error code could be an indication there is a problem internally with the thermostat. It could also be an indication of a furnace or air conditioning malfunction. Seeing a blank screen could indicate that you have a low battery within the unit. If the unit doesn't turn on at all, there could be a faulty electrical problem within the entire system.
