How's your heating and air conditioning treating you? Are you feeling the heat when it comes to your monthly utility bills? One solution to the high energy bills could be a new thermostat, one that is not only programmable, but also smart. Here are two things to look for when purchasing that new thermostat:

What Are Your Programming Needs?

Your needs and how you use your thermostat and heating and cooling system will help you determine the right type for you and your home.

If you don't necessarily feel like messing with technology, but are willing to manage some simple programming, a programmable thermostat with an easy user interface would be a great choice. You'll be able to control your heating and cooling so you only use it when you need it, with simple, easy to use operation and functionality.

On the other hand, if you are tech savvy and you want all the bells and whistles, a smart thermostat is the way to go. You have all the programming capabilities of a programmable thermostat, but with WiFi access so you can adjust it from anywhere, anytime.

What Are Your Energy Saving Goals?

If you're looking for some simple temperature management options so you can pre-program your heating and cooling for day and night, home and away, and when you’re on vacation, a programmable thermostat will do everything you need.

If you want to boost the energy savings even more, take a look at smart thermostats. They allow you to fine tune your temperature customization as well as get real-time energy use information and remote access to change and adjust your settings.

You don't have to suffer through high utility bills. Upgrading your thermostat can save you money, as well as allow you to use less energy.
