An important part of providing heating, air conditioning, and ventilation services to homes is working with thermostats. These devices are the control panels where homeowners can instruct and interact with the comfort system.

How a Thermostat Can Help (And Hurt) Home Comfort

A thermostat is a small device, and most are designed to keep attention away from them. Don’t let this deceive you into thinking that the thermostat serves only a minor role in a house. An advanced model of thermostat regulates temperature so that everyone remains comfortable and the HVAC system doesn’t drain energy. A thermostat that is outdated, or malfunctioning, can end up creating an unpleasant indoor environment, outrageously high energy bills, or even an AC/heater that’s damaging itself by short–cycling.

The bottom line is that thermostat upgrades and occasional thermostat repairs are an essential part of having an energy–efficient and effective HVAC system.

Options for Thermostat Installation and Thermostat Replacement

Thermostats today come in an immense range of types with various advanced features. Here are three of the broad categories to consider when you’re looking for a new thermostat.

  • Digital thermostat: You shouldn’t still be using a manual thermostat with sliders and dials. Upgrading to even a no–frills digital thermostat improves performance thanks to greater precision with temperature settings. Even better are the many programmable models that permit you to control the settings at times when no one is home.
  • Wireless thermostat: These thermostats offer ease of placement and greater convenience. With a Wi–Fi connection through a computer, smart phone, or tablet you can control the thermostat from almost anywhere, even across the country. This provides tremendous improvements in savings and comfort.
  • Smart thermostat: The current cutting edge of thermostat technology is the smart thermostat. What makes it "smart"? It learns from a history of programming, and then uses this data to create better programs that maximize energy efficiency. The thermostat does most of the hard work of saving money.
