The Benefits of Programmable Thermostats

Attention homeowners! Are you looking for a way to save on energy costs even in the hot Jacksonville, Florida summer? Programmable thermostats have become vastly popular due to the energy savings, improved comfort, convenience and cost. It does not seem like much – a thermostat to measure the temperate controls in your home. However, with the new advances in technology, a thermostat is so much more than a thermostat.

Why Choose a Programmable Thermostat?

Easy to use and moderately inexpensive, the return on investment for a programmable thermostat makes it an essential staple in any home. In fact, when used correctly, it will pay for itself within four years. Digital thermostats are designed to maximize the performance of your home comfort with accurate temperature settings that you can control. You can program your comfort around your lifestyle. For example, if you’re one of those people that enjoys waking up to a warm home but sleeping in colder temperatures, you can easily program your thermostat for both settings in just one motion! Ease of use, flexibility, energy savings, and a sleek design are all quality features you’ll receive when you purchase a digital thermometer.

Features of a Programmable Thermostat

Depending on the model you intend to purchase, a programmable thermostat can offer a myriad of features.

    • Touch-pad screen programming
    • Voice/phone programming
    • Vacation settings
    • Dirty air filter/equipment malfunction alerts
    • Consistent comfort settings
    • Early start functions

If you’re trying to decide which digital thermometer is right for you, contact the heating and air professionals at Snyder Heating & Air. Our Jacksonville, Florida, HVAC specialists will be happy to review your needs with you to determine which programmable thermostat is right for your home and your lifestyle.

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

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

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.
