The thermostat is really the only component of your heating and cooling system with which you interact on a regular basis, and, though it is small, it’s also one of the most important parts of your HVAC system. Without a working thermostat, your unit would not know when to turn on and off. While this is the most basic function of any thermostat, most modern models have additional features, such as programming options, wireless control, or the ability to operate the temperature in your home while you’re far away.

Thermostat replacement is sometimes necessary when the air conditioning and heating unit is not functioning properly. One example of this is short cycling. A system is short cycling when it continuously turns off before the heating or cooling cycle is complete. The unit will run frequently, only to shut off before your home is the desired temperature. This uses a lot of energy and puts a lot of unnecessary stress on the unit. While this could be due to a handful of other problems with the unit, the thermostat wiring is sometimes to blame.
Homeowners often choose to replace their thermostat even when there is nothing wrong with the existing one. This is because new thermostats have advanced features that allow for greater control, which can effectively lower your heating and cooling costs if used properly.
A wireless, digital thermostat may be the right choice in your home, especially if you want to replace an older manual thermostat. Manual thermostats have dials and sliders which don’t always line up, making it difficult to determine whether you’ve set it properly. This means you frequently readjust the temperature, reducing the efficiency of your system. Wireless thermostats may be placed in any location, making them highly efficient. And a digital thermostat has a clear display and settings which allow you to program the system to turn on and off when you are not home.
Alternatively, you might consider a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats learn your preferences within about a week and essentially program themselves to adjust to your daily heating and cooling preferences. Furthermore, you can operate the thermostat from an application on your smartphone or tablet, so you can control the heating and AC in your home even from very far away.
Our team can assist you with every step of thermostat replacement and installation, from selecting a new unit to installing it in the most efficient location possible. A thermostat should go in an area of your home that is representative of the average temperature in your home and with little exposure to direct sunlight.
