During winter and summer when temperatures are extreme, you’re bound to notice an increase in your energy bill. If you’re looking to keep your bill as reasonable as possible, the best way to boost your HVAC efficiency is by upgrading your thermostat. This might not be your first thought, but your thermostat controls the entirety of your HVAC system, so ensuring that it’s in top shape is incredibly important. If you need reliable services for your air conditioning in Orem, UT, you can trust our crew at Skylake Heating & Air to do an excellent job maintaining your system.

Go “Smart”

If you’re considering upgrading your thermostat, most experts you contact will encourage you to get a wireless thermostat, but we want to encourage you to go the extra mile and upgrade to a smart thermostat. If you have a programmable thermostat at home, you probably enjoy the programmable features it offers. You can set a certain temperature for a certain time of day and your thermostat will internally make the switch. With a smart thermostat, your system learns from your behaviors and grows to anticipate your heating and cooling needs. It can even adjust the internal temperature of your home according to these learned behaviors. Smart thermostats work with you instead of having you to create a predetermined timetable or forcing you to work around the system.

Why Upgrade?

Even if you have a digital, programmable thermostat you’re not getting the most out of your system without a WiFi enabled smart thermostat. This type of thermostat is simply better than the other alternatives on the market.


That’s why you’re reading this article, right? A smart thermostat boosts your efficiency and helps you save money. When it comes to setting your thermostat, every degree counts, with a smart thermostat you won’t have to do as much guesswork. While a programmable thermostat helps you stick to a routine and avoid running your HVAC system when it isn’t needed, a smart thermostat will help you set your thermostat to the most efficient temperature possible.


With a smart thermostat, you’ll always have the temperature of your home at your fingertips. While programmable thermostats are great, they don’t allow any room for error in the future. If you forget to program your thermostat for that day or just change your mind about the desired temperature of your home for a certain time, you’re out of luck after you leave your home. With a smart thermostat, you can change the temperature of your home remotely at any time as long as you have access to your smartphone or to a computer.
