Programmable thermostats can be intimidating. Many of our customers are reluctant to let go of their old dial thermostats because they are simple to use, even though dial thermostats can waste money and energy. With a little knowledge, a digital thermostat can be just as easy to use as a dial thermostat!

Programmable thermostats are popular because they let you preset the temperatures you want in your home on specific days and times. You can set a different temperature for daytime and nighttime, for example. Or you can have the A/C shut off when you’re away at work.

Programmable thermostats remove the possibility of user error. You can never forget to turn down the A/C when it’s programmed to do so by itself!

How to Use the “Hold” and “Run” Settings

With digital thermostats designed to follow your set program, what do you do if you need to break the pattern? After all, everybody takes a sick day or enjoys a holiday from time to time. If your A/C is normally off during the day, do you have to reprogram your entire week to accommodate a temporary change of plans?

Nope! This is where the “Hold” button on your thermostat comes into play. By pressing “Hold”, your thermostat will lock in the temperature it’s currently at until you change it again.

When you are ready for your normal schedule to resume, simply press the “Run” button and return to your typical programming. Convenient, right?
