As a resident of Orlando or the surrounding area, you most likely keep an eye on your air conditioning thermostat so that you know at exactly what temperature the unit is set. At ICE Cooling, we’ve helped many homeowners that were experiencing problems with their thermostat, or were having issues with setting the desired temperature. There are so many thermostat options out there, that picking the right one can be a challenge. Fortunately, our AC experts are here to help!
The standard or manual thermostat is still the most common, and these models make sense for those that are home for most the day and keep their homes at a fixed temperature. One step up from a standard model is a non-programmable thermostat, which is more aesthetically pleasing, and still make sense for those that keep their house at one temperature throughout the day.
Programmable and remote energy management (REM) thermostats are a bit more sophisticated. They are often found in homes where the owners are gone for most the day – usually at work – and they don’t want their AC to run while they’re gone, but they still want it to turn on if the interior of the house gets too warm. REM models can be controlled via smartphone or tablet, so you can see and manage the temperature inside your home before you leave the office. The final option that we offer are learning thermostats, which do just that – learn – and create a cooling schedule based on your habits and preferences.
