With energy costs constantly rising throughout Peachtree City and the surrounding Metro Atlanta area, many homeowners are looking for ways to save on their heating & cooling costs without sacrificing their home comfort. This is especially true during the winter with holiday vacations, frequent visitors, and extended time at home. Smart thermostats can help by providing effortless controls for your furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner

At Anchor, we install several smart and programmable thermostats that can keep your home cozy all winter long and help you save on your energy bills. 

How Programmable & Smart Thermostats Work

Smart and programmable thermostats allow you to adjust your temperature settings automatically, but there are a few differences between them. At Anchor Heating & Air, we can help you choose the right thermostat for your home’s specific needs.

Programmable Thermostats

Programmable thermostats allow you to set a schedule to automatically adjust your heating and cooling temperatures. They give you a convenient way to reduce your energy costs without having to remember to turn your settings down before you leave your home.  

Smart Thermostats 

Offering many of the same features as a programmable thermostat (plus a few more), smart thermostats give you ultimate winter heating control. By connecting to your home’s wifi and integrating with most HVAC systems, these innovative thermostats give you access to your heating and cooling system from anywhere with an easy-to-use app on your smart device.
