    Knowing the product upgrade benefits that come with choices like changing a thermostat can easily set you apart from the competition. If your customer is asking how to get the best thermostat for the money, we have a five-step process to help you guide them:

    Step 1: Know What You Need

    It is important to know the type of thermostat you need for your home heating and air-conditioning system. Today, the ideal type of thermostat to have is one that is programmable. It will save you money and ensure your home is the right temperature around the clock. However, there are options to consider. Some thermostats can be remotely controlled via a mobile device, while others are programmable using the keypad only.

    Step 2: Know What Works with Your System

    But before you make that purchase, it is critical to know what type of HVAC system you have so that you choose a compatible thermostat. Single stage or multi-level stage units, direct line voltage and zoned HVAC will require different types of thermostats. Your HVAC company can answer questions about what is compatible with your unit.

    Step 3: Know How Much to Invest in a Thermostat

    The cost of a thermostat, especially a programmable one, may be higher than you anticipated. However, it is important to analyze the value of a programmable thermostat. It has the potential to save you a significant amount in energy savings and is therefore worth the higher initial cost. Features like remote access also make a difference in the price of your new thermostat.
