Getting the Most from Your Programmable Home Thermostat

AAA Heating and Cooling offers intuitive residential thermostats with a variety of functions controlled by a small computer that monitors the temperature, day, and time. 

Our specialists will gladly program it for you based on your household’s schedule and needs. You’ll also learn how to make adjustments on your own.

Get the full benefit of your programmable thermostat by:

  • Keeping the temperature at energy-saving set points for periods of at least eight hours.
  • Using the override function to temporarily make your home warmer or cooler without erasing the pre-set program.
  • Using the “vacation” or “hold” feature to set an energy-saving temperature while you’re away from your home for an extended period.

Programmable Thermostat Options for Your Home

Choosing the right thermostat can improve your quality of life and reduce your power bills. 

Basic models include:

  • 7-day model: This model is great if you want to set a different temperature for every day of the week.
  • 5+2-day model: Use this model if you want to set one schedule for the weekend and another for weekdays.
  • 5+1+1 model: This model is ideal if you want to set one schedule for weekdays but separate schedules for each weekend day.
  • Smart thermostats: Smart thermostat models learn your daily habits and adjust the temperature in your home accordingly. Some work in conjunction with smart devices and take into consideration elements such as the weather and your location to ensure your home is comfortable when you arrive.

HVAC Control System Repair & Maintenance

If the following occurs, it’s time to call a AAA Heating and Cooling Specialist to maintain or repair your thermostat:

  • The HVAC system continuously runs without stopping
  • The HVAC system doesn’t turn on at the temperature the thermostat is set to

When your programmable thermostat doesn’t seem to work correctly, there are a few troubleshooting tasks you can do on your own:

  • Replace the batteries
  • Set the fan to “Auto” instead of “Continuous” or “Off”
  • Ensure the system is set to “Heat” during the winter and “Cool” during the summer
  • Ensure the set-point temperature is higher or lower (depending on the season) than the room’s ambient temperature

Programmable Thermostat FAQ


What Should I Do if the Screen on My Programmable Thermostat is Blank?

If the screen is completely blank, that’s a sign that there is no power to your unit. Ensure the unit’s batteries are in place and fully charged. If that’s not the issue, check your breaker box to make sure it hasn’t been tripped.

How Can I Tell if My Thermostat Needs to be Replaced?

Here are a few tell-tale signs your thermostat may need to be replaced:

  • Your heat or air conditioning will not turn on
  • Temperatures vary between rooms
  • Heating or cooling will not turn off
  • No power to the thermostat after troubleshooting

If you’re experiencing any of the above issues, call AAA Heating and Cooling and our highly-trained technicians can help.

What’s the Difference Between a Smart Thermostat and a Programmable Thermostat?

Programmable thermostats are simply thermostats that allow you to program a set temperature schedule. 

Smart Thermostats can do that and more! They have additional features such as being WiFi-enabled, allowing you to control it from your phone or personal device. They can also have learning capabilities and automatically adjust to your preferences and adjust for when people are no longer in a space.

Additionally, smart thermostats can help make it simple to view your system’s energy consumption or alert you to required maintenance.

Can I Lower My Energy Use with a Programmable Thermostat?

Yes! Programmable thermostats allow you to program your HVAC to only come on when it’s needed. Having an automatic setting to adjust the temperature for long periods when you’re away from home (work, school, etc.) can help you save as much as 10% per year.

Should I Schedule Regular Maintenance for My Programmable Thermostat?

While it’s not necessary to schedule regular maintenance specifically for your thermostat, AAA Heating and Cooling will ensure it’s clean and functioning properly as part of our regular HVAC maintenance appointments.

Between annual HVAC maintenance, we recommend keeping your thermostat clean and testing it each fall against a digital thermometer to ensure it’s displaying the correct temperature.
