The thermostat in a home is not a “forever” device that remains in place no matter what other changes may occur with the rest of the house. Although a well-constructed thermostat can last for many years, it will eventually become out-of-date, much like computer models, and need to receive updates to keep consistent with air conditioning and heating technology.
Here are three reasons you should consider having a new thermostat put into your home. If you feel in doubt about whether a new installation is the best idea, you can receive a professional opinion from our technicians at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning. We have decades of experience with thermostat installation in Tucson, AZ that we can put to work for you. Contact us today to learn more.
1. You are installing a new air conditioner, heater, or heat pump
If you are replacing an older comfort system with a new one, you should probably include a thermostat replacement on the menu of changes. Your new AC, heater, or heat pump will have more features and greater efficiency than your current one, and if you keep an old thermostat you will miss out on many of these bonuses. An updated thermostat will make sure that you get the most from your investment in a new comfort system.
2. The current thermostat is a manual model
In this day of digital technology, you shouldn’t still have a manual thermostat with sliders and dials. These manual models were effective in their day, but that day is already more than two decades in the past. They lack the crucial precision of programmable digital models, and that means your comfort settings will often be in error by 5° up or down. A manual model means you are missing out on comfort and savings.
3. The current thermostat doesn’t offer multi-day programming
A digital programmable thermostat is a great advance over manual and simple digital models. Even better are the multi-day programmable models that go beyond the standard programmable thermostats that only offers a “day” and “night” setting. Multi-day programming gives you a level of control over your comfort that means you won’t have to think much about setting the thermostat at all: it can continue on its own, providing ideal comfort for every day of the week and saving you money at the same time. These programmable models also come in easy-to-use touch-screen variants.
We think you will be excited about the technological possibilities for making your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
