When you can control the temperature in your Marrero, LA, home precisely, you can keep yourself and your family comfortable no matter how hot or cold it is outside. There are many HVAC control options available. Convenient ways to maintain your temperature include programmable thermostats, smart thermostats, and zoning.

Programmable Thermostats

You can set a programmable thermostat to turn down your HVAC system when you usually leave for work or go to sleep. That way, you can save energy without sacrificing comfort. Some models have one setting for weekdays and another for weekends, while other programmable thermostats have a separate option for each day of the week.

Smart Thermostats

A smart thermostat can communicate wirelessly with other devices in your home, like motion sensors, speakers, cameras, or microphones. Many models, like the Platinum XV Control, come with preset configurations. They can learn your routine over time without programming, and you can make last-minute changes through your computer or phone. You can get weather forecasts, maintenance reminders, humidity measurements, and other useful information through the convenient touch screen.


A zoning system uses more than one thermostat and dampers in your ductwork or separate indoor units to send conditioned air where it’s needed most. It allows you to avoid cooling or heating unoccupied rooms. Since everyone can choose the temperature for his or her bedroom, you also won’t have to deal with arguments over the best setting. You can eliminate drafts or uneven air conditioning in a large home or a house with more than one story. Since your system won’t have to work as hard, it will last longer with fewer breakdowns. When it’s time to choose a new unit, zoning could even let you install a smaller, less expensive model.
