Common questions

In summer and warmer months, try to set your thermostat no lower than 78° F. In colder winter weather, set it no higher than 68° F to prevent your furnace from working overtime. When you don't need to use your AC or furnace (when you are out of the house, for example), set your thermostat to a temperature that will prevent your heating/cooling equipment from operating.

With a smart thermostat and its companion app, you can change or view thermostat settings from anywhere you have an Internet connection (at home or on the go). For example: if you leave for vacation and realize you forgot to adjust your home thermostat, a smart thermostat would allow you to adjust it from the airport or even the beach!
