Carrier’s new Côr thermostat is becoming a must when it comes to smart thermostats. The unit offers the ability to manage your home comfort from anywhere. Whether you’re at the office on Prince Street or venturing to Central Market you can manage your preferences on your phone. The smart thermostat is an incredible money saver for any Lancaster area resident

What Is a Smart Thermostat?

There are typically three types of thermostats you can find in homes today. Regular thermostats control the temperature through a few knobs and switches. Programmable thermostats are typically digital with the ability to automatically change temperatures at different times during the day. Finally, smart thermostats include these features and more with a fully digital display and the ability to connect to a smartphone via Bluetooth.

Local residents in the central PA area have the ability to control their home’s heating and cooling via an app or the digital display on their smart thermostat. This means you can turn down the air conditioning during the summer while enjoying your family fun day at Hershey’s Chocolate World. As a homeowner, you’ll also have the ability to see current projected energy use and be able to make adjustments based on new conditions in the air changes around your home. Using the smartphone app to schedule and adjust programs is one of the most popular features with our Lancaster customers. With this device you can ensure your home is comfortable right when you walk in the door. Just set-up your workweek schedule and if you’re running late, simply tell the thermostat through the app and it will delay the warming or cooling process.
