How Do You Install a Smart Thermostat?

Smart Thermostat

The investment in a smart thermostat could be one of the best decisions you make. These thermostats work in much the same way as the one you likely have in your home now, but they do so with a few additional components and methods. The result is that some of these thermostats can reduce your heating and cooling costs significantly.

Why Invest in a Smart Thermostat?

The EPA reports that programmable, or smart thermostats, can reduce your heating and cooling energy use by as much as 20 percent. That could be a significant amount of money left in your pocket. If you aren't sure if they are right for your home, let Jerry's Air Conditioning & Heating come out to provide a full inspection. We'll help you determine the benefits, which may also include improve the comfort level in your home.

4 Step Installation Guide

Here's another fact for you. Up to 90 percent of all programmable thermostats put into homes never actually get programmed! They do not have to be complex but they do take a few minutes to program and put in place. That's why we recommend working closely with our dedicated team. Let our highly-skilled technicians help you with the installation. Otherwise, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Choose a programmable thermostat designed to meet your unique needs. Choose a high-quality brand that will provide long-term benefits.
  • Turn off the power supply to your heating and cooling system, remove the old system, and then pull the wires for the new system.
  • Because this is electrical work, you should have some experience in removing and connecting wires or you should use a professional for the process.
  • Once the new programmable thermostat is in place, don't stop there. Program it! Smart thermostats can only work if you program them. The manufacturer will provide specific steps in this process.
