When you live in New Orleans, keeping your house cool is a must for most months out of the year. But when you’re busy and out of the house often, you may be wasting energy cooling empty space to ensure you’re comfortable when you finally do get home. A programmable thermostat is perfect for someone with a busy lifestyle because of the access it gives you to your HVAC system even when you’re not at home. Here are some reasons to upgrade your thermostat.
Create a Weekly Schedule
American Standard’s smart home automation and ComfortLink II technology gives you a touchscreen interface and an easy way to program your week. You can program for the weekdays and the weekends, ensuring the house is at the perfect temperature when you’re there and in energy-saving mode when you’re not. Or, create a seven-day program that matches your busy schedule.
Change the Temperature from your Phone
You can adjust the temperature in your home via mobile access. This is perfect for turning on the AC as you’re on your way home from work, or for altering the thermostat due to unexpected New Orleans weather while you’re on vacation. You can also control the temperature in different rooms of the house from different locations.
Get Maintenance Reminders

But when you’re busy and have so many things already on your calendar, it’s hard to remember something like HVAC maintenance that doesn’t happen often.
