Combat Scorching Temperatures with a Smart Thermostat

Monday, April 13th, 2020

Before you spiral into a fantasy with your thermostat turning into a sentient terminator, let us remind you that this is not what we mean by “smart.” Smart thermostats are as smart as your smartphone is, with some select amount of programming that makes your life a lot easier.

It would be different if your air conditioner was surrounded by a few feet of ice and snow, but down here in Florida, it’s a different story. HVAC in Venice, FL can be easier to perform during the winter because we have such a mild wintertime climate. Your air conditioner has probably only experienced wind, rain, and some temperatures that never exceeded freezing.
