Controlling the heat and cool air that your HVAC system produces is incredibly important to the comfort of your family. Odds are pretty good that you use your air conditioning extensively during the hotter summer months while you depend on your heat in order to stay warm during the colder months of winter. In fact, you’ve probably found yourself or family members changing your thermostat in Jacksonville, FL on a regular basis in an attempt to establish your desired comfort level. While that is what a thermostat is for – turning on the heat or air conditioning in order to gain comfort – doing so also has an effect on your utility bills. You’ve probably noticed a correlation between the heavy use of your heating and cooling systems and a spike in your energy bills. Because of this, you should strongly consider installing a programmable thermostat. Installing a programmable thermostat in Jacksonville, FL will not only help you to lower your heating and cooling costs, it will also help to improve the comfort of your home. The following are just a few of the benefits that a programmable thermostat will provide to your home:

Saving Money on Your Energy Bills
So how exactly can a programmable thermostat save you money? It’s simple: it allows you to regulate changes in the home’s temperature by programming them to change automatically on your thermostat. Different programmable thermostats allow you different flexibility in terms of what you can program. Some programmable thermostats have settings that will run automatically for the entire week. Some allow you to program separate settings for the week and the weekend. There are even programmable thermostats available that let you program Saturday and Sunday separately.

This is helpful for a number of reasons. How often are you actually at home? If you’re like many families, then you may be out of the house during the day because you are at work, while the kids are off to school. If this is the case, then there’s no need to be cooling or heating your home – since no one is home. Households waste a huge amount of energy because of this. A programmable thermostat allows you to set your thermostat to automatically change to the most energy efficient setting at the time you leave your home. You can set the thermostat to return to your desired temperature level right before you or your kids return from work or school. The same can be done for when you go to bed, as you often don’t need the air conditioning to be cranked up all the way if you are under the covers. This ability to have your thermostat automatically change throughout the day will help you save a huge amount of energy, thereby helping you to drastically lower your energy bills.

Improve the Comfort of Your Home
Being able to set the thermostat to change to your desired settings throughout the day will have a huge effect on your comfort. If you have always been mindful of the energy you are using and tend to turn the air conditioning or heat off before you leave the home, then you know how uncomfortable it can be when you return. You’ll have to wait for your home to cool down or heat up, which is never instant. In fact, many homeowners will make the mistake of becoming impatient, resulting in them cranking the air conditioning or heating way up – thinking that doing so will make their home cool down or heat up faster. It won’t. Instead, you’ll waste energy making your home less comfortable in the other end of the spectrum, resulting in the need to adjust the temperature again, thereby wasting even more energy. By setting the programmable thermostat to automatically change to your desired temperature before you get home, you’ll be ensuring that your home is at your desired comfort level.

Improve your Eco-Friendliness
Investing in a programmable thermostat helps the environment in several ways. First of all, you’re helping to cut down on your use of energy, which means that right off the bat you are reducing your environmental footprint. Secondly, unlike many traditional thermostats, programmable thermostats do not use mercury. Mercury is a toxic substance that negatively affects the health of people as well as the environment and the wildlife contained within.

Anyone looking to live a greener lifestyle in addition to saving money on their energy bills and increasing the comfort of their homes should strongly consider investing in a programmable thermostat. The initial costs of a programmable thermostat in Jacksonville, FL are relatively affordable, and those costs tend to be covered with the amount of money you can save on your energy bills over the long term.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
