Sometimes, it’s the little conveniences that have the biggest impact on our daily life. Programmable and smart thermostats are one of those perks and the licensed and certified electricians at HELP Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, and Drains can help upgrade your home with easy, professional installation.
Programmable thermostats allow you to preset certain temperature settings manually for different times of the day. These thermostats are similar in design and installation to your basic thermostat.
Smart thermostats also have scheduling capabilities but can be controlled wirelessly. You can monitor, set, and adjust your thermostat from anywhere! No more getting out of bed to adjust the thermostat. Smart thermostats come with several other advanced features such as trend reporting, humidity level monitoring, and more.

Benefits of Programmable & Smart Thermostat Installation
By upgrading your thermostat, you can experience:
Greater energy efficiency, which is good for your energy bills and the longevity of your HVAC system.
Cost savings from only using the amount of energy you need instead of running the same setting 24/7.
Convenience of not having to adjust the temperature manually when you leave the house or before you go to bed.
Analytics to help you track usage patterns.
To get the most of these benefits, you need proper installation and complete understanding of how to use all the features of your new thermostat.
Improper installation can mean the thermostat isn’t fully or correctly communicating with your HVAC system. Data and temperature readings could be inaccurate, which could put unnecessary stress on your HVAC unit. Likewise, incorrect wiring is a safety hazard.

Professional Programmable & Smart Thermostat Installation in Northern Kentucky
Because programmable and smart thermostats have extra features, they require more power. Furthermore, these functionalities will only work if the thermostat can correctly “communicate” with the HVAC system. Ensuring proper power and connectivity of your thermostat is a task best left to a professional.
Most smart thermostats require what is called a C-wire — an additional wire that allows the extra voltage required to power it. If your home is more than 5 to 10 years old, then you likely don’t have a C-wire behind your existing thermostat. Installing a C-wire is something only a professional should do.

FAQ About Programmable & Smart Thermostat Installation
Does a smart thermostat require Wi-Fi?
Smart thermostats do require Wi-Fi for full functionality of the smart features like remote access, home/away tracking, etc. However, the basic function of reading the temperature functions without Wi-Fi. Even if you lose connectivity, your thermostat — and thus, your HVAC systems — will still run.
Can I still manually adjust a smart thermostat?
It depends on the thermostat. Some smart models are designed with a faceplate that allows for manual use, some can only be controlled by their mobile app.If you wish to have the option of manually adjusting, be sure to select a model that offers that feature.
Can I replace my thermostat myself?
We recommend having a professional replace a thermostat. DIY thermostat installation may sound simple, and in some cases, it can be.
Replacing a standard thermostat is straightforward, but not so much with advanced units like programmable and smart thermostats. Depending on your HVAC system, it may involve fine details that, when done incorrectly, can result in the thermostat not functioning properly.
