Three Reasons to Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat

Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning is advising homeowners to update their thermostats to smart systems for extra control, reliability and energy savings

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – May 11, 2018 – Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, a family-owned home service company and recipient of the Angie’s List Super Service Award for the eighth year in a row, is recommending that MetroWest homeowners upgrade to the next generation of thermostats to maximize their heating and cooling systems.

“With summer right around the corner, now is a perfect time to update your thermostat,” said Mike Nicholson, owner of Nicholson Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning. “Smart thermostats will help you save money on monthly energy bills, and the great news is that nowadays they make them so easy to use you don’t have to be particularly tech savvy to get your money’s worth.”

Nicholson provides the following reasons to invest in a new smart thermostat:

  1. Save money by easily programming temperatures for periods of vacancy – Just like regular programmable thermostats, smart thermostats can be programmed to adjust the temperature for added comfort when residents are present and for extra savings when residents are at work or away from their home. However, smart thermostats can also be programmed to learn routines and even pair with a smartphone for easy adjustment while away from the home.
  2. The hardware and software are continuously getting better – As the technology advances and new models are released, reliability and reviews are getting better. Like a smartphone or computer, these devices continue to improve in both performance and ease of use year over year.
  3. You may qualify for a rebate – Because smart thermostats are considered energy-saving equipment, rebates may be available for purchasing one. Remember to check local organizations, like Mass Save, and take advantage of any potential savings offered.

“We never seem to hesitate in updating our computers and phones, but when it comes to the biggest investment we have, we often allow our home to fall behind in technology and efficiency,” Nicholson said. “A smart thermostat is a simple, affordable update that can help you take better control of your comfort and save you money on your monthly energy bill, and we believe your home is well-worth such an upgrade.”

  • Francis from Nicholson Plumbing and Heating was excellent. He was here to evaluate HVAC in our home. He was very patient and answered all my questions. He is also polite and easy to communicate with him. He explained technical concepts to me in layperson terms!

  • Nicholson offered what is possibly the best customer service I have dealt with in a home repair situation.  I called them because I was looking to replace my very old furnace.  They came out to do an initial estimate, and then came back when I had some further questions about my options.  After installing the furnace, they ran into some problems with my air ducts.  This happened on a Friday, and the problem was fixed by Monday afternoon.  In addition to their excellent service, they did quality work at a fair price.  I would recommend them to anyone looking for an HVAC company in the Framingham area!

  • Recently used these guys because my HVAC unit AC wasn’t working (first hot day of summer).  Showed up on time, wore booties, fixed the unit.  During the visit we talked about how my unit was having problems in the winter – which was resulting in NSTAR service calls of maybe 3-4 times per season (I am on a service plan with them).   He was the first guy to tell me WHY the problem was happening, and HOW to fix it.  I find it strange that all of the NSTAR guys etc. no one took time to point out how to fix the source of the problem…Very professional, smart.  I would use them again, and plan to for the fix on my heating unit!
