Boise Thermostat Installation & Repair
Giving You More Control of Your Indoor Climate In Nampa & Beyond
Programmable thermostats are one of the most important devices that a homeowner needs. They are a step up from older thermostats that require users to manually change the temperature. Instead of setting the temperature to one static temperature, people who own programmable thermostats can set the temperature to fluctuate widely over the course of the day and night. This gives them a lot more flexibility and helps them save money by lowering energy costs.
Benefits of Programmable Thermostats
The greatest benefit of programmable thermostats is that they greatly reduce the cost of keeping a building climate-controlled. Because they can automatically adjust the temperature at certain times of day, you do not have to waste energy keeping a building heated or cooled when no one is there. You can set a programmable thermostat to come on just in time to have the building at an ideal temperature when the first person arrives in the morning.
The same goes for homeowners when they are asleep on cold winter nights. They can use their programmable thermostats to lower the temperature in their homes while they are sleeping, and then have them come up to the ideal temperature by the time they get up in the morning. Using a programmable thermostat in this manner will save users a bundle on their energy costs.
Below are some other benefits of a programmable thermostat:
- Reduces carbon footprint
- Gives a more consistent temperature
- Increases property value
Signs You Need to Replace Your Thermostat
The most obvious sign that alerts users to problems with their programmable thermostats is when the temperature in their homes never seems to be quite right.
Faulty programmable thermostats may also:
- Struggle to keep the temperature constant
- Keep the heat on too long
- Fail to kick the air conditioner on fast enough on a hot day
- Fail to turn on the heating system or air conditioner at the preset times

Dangers of Neglecting to Repair or Replace Your Thermostat
The first and most common problem with using a faulty thermostat is that you and your family will not be comfortable inside your home.
Though that is annoying, there are far more serious problems that could occur such as:
- Frozen pipes – This could lead to burst pipes that will cause you to have to make time for an extensive plumbing repair job.
- Overheating – If you have pets and this happens while you’re at work, this could lead to your pets becoming dehydrated or seriously sick from heatstroke.
