Better Air Conditioner Automation


I have a minor pet peeve against air conditioners, especially home air conditioning units.

I live in an area where it often gets too warm during the day and too cold at night. Therefore, I have to change the mode on the air conditioner twice a day. In the mornings, I change it from heat to cool. And in the evenings, I change it back from cool to heat.


Why canít this be automated? My air conditioner is already automated so does not cool the house as much when no one is typically home. Why canít I program both a minimum temperature and a maximum temperature, and the air con unit automatically switches between heat and cool as needed?

Therefore, I do not need to manually regulate my air conditioner twice a day. If anyone can tell manufacturers of air conditioners this new idea, I would be greatly appreciated.
