It’s no secret that summers in the RGV are hot, and keeping cool usually means a hefty power bill. If you’ve been thinking about how to lower your bill, switching out your thermostat has probably come up as a solution.

A programmable thermostat makes it easy to save money on your bill, but it isn’t the thermostat itself that causes the savings. It’s what you do with the thermostat that helps with your power bill. In order to know which choice is best for you, you need to know how to save money using one.

Raising the temperature means lower power bills

You can save as much as 10% off your electric bill by raising the temperature on your A/C 7 to 10 degrees. Even if you don’t like the feel of the house when its warm rather than cool, you can still take advantage of savings by raising the temperature a few degrees when you know you won’t be home.

If you don’t mind adjusting the thermostat yourself each time, a non-programmable thermostat works just as well as a programmable one. The key difference is that a programmable one never forgets to make that adjustment, and will save you money even when you don’t remember to adjust it on your way out the door.

This means that while both can save you money, the programmable thermostat makes it easier to save. It also makes the savings you see on your bill each month more consistent because it never forgets or runs out of time, while you might.

Programmable thermostats have perks

The one drawback to adjusting the A/C so it isn’t cooling your home when no one is there to enjoy it, is that you come back to a warm house. While this may only be for a short time while the A/C brings the house back down to a comfortable temperature, it’s still not the most enjoyable experience.

With a programmable thermostat however, you can program the thermostat to automatically start the cool down process 30 minutes before you get home. This way, you can enjoy the perks of not cooling an empty house, as well as stepping in to a refreshingly cool home at the end of the day.

Smart thermostats can take it a step farther, and allow you to make changes remotely as well. If you get off work early and want the house to be cool when you get home, you can make these changes through a WiFi connection.

This type of thermostat is best if you have a busy family with an inconsistent schedule. If your child is coming home from school early, or someone else will be home for some reason, you can adjust the thermostat without ever having to leave the office.

Which thermostat you choose is ultimately up to you. If you have a great memory and are consistent about adjusting the settings, any type will work, but if you get lost in a busy schedule a programmable thermostat is likely to save you the most money.

Customer Reviews

Justin Siguenza of Frontier AC just left my house after providing bi-annual services. He is a very professional tech and I was also impressed with his friendliness. I hope to see him again in six months.


Very, very happy with Frontier services, our a/c unit went oit all of a sudden and we were needing to replace the entire unit, and not only did they give us a great price and customer service but they wen out of their way to send out technicians on a Saturday to provide immediate service. Technicians were great and very informative on the unit and any questions I asked. So thank you Frontier for your services.

Rigo did a great job for me. One of my own repairs blew a fuse within my air conditioner. Rigo figured out the problem, replaced the fuse, and explained everything to me so that I don’t make the same mistake again. I’m very impressed with his knowledge and friendly nature.
