Programmable and Digital Thermostats in Minneapolis-St. Paul

It can be a challenge to get your HVAC to the right temperature and to maintain it. While it may work quite efficiently to heat and cool your home, it doesn’t know how much is necessary unless it is told by a thermostat. Thermostats are a critical component to any home heating and cooling system to ensure your comfort. They regulate the output of the system to achieve the desired temperature. Blue Ox Heating and Air Conditioning can install a digital or programmable thermostat to provide years of comfort for your home.


Digital thermostats do the work for you by measuring the current temperature and comparing it to the preset temperature you select. The thermostat gets the HVAC system to start up when the current temperature isn’t the same as the desired one. After you do the initial steps to program the thermostat, it does the rest of the work for you.

We use a variety of products from Honeywell and Goodman’s ComfortNet Communicating Control System as well as Wi-Fi thermostats.

Some of our most popular digital and programmable thermostats include:

What is a Wi-Fi Thermostat?

Upgrading Your Thermostat

Programmable thermostats provide several advantages for homeowners who want to control their temperature.

  • Program the temperature – With a digital thermostat, you can set the temperature for different times of the day or days of the week to meet your family’s needs. The settings automatically change as directed by you without further assistance.
  • Cost Savings – You can save money with a programmable thermostat which adjusts based on your usage. When you aren’t home, set the thermostat for a more efficient temperature.
  • Stylish Design – Programmable thermostats are often more stylish than the old boxes that were attached to the wall. The backlit display features touchscreen controls.
