How Can a New Thermostat Improve Cooling?

 

If you’re looking for ways to improve your air conditioning and heating system, it may seem as though a replacement system is your best bet. However, replacing one of the smallest parts can extend the lifespan of your HVAC unit, improve efficiency, and help everyone in the home to stay more comfortable throughout the day. The thermostat may be responsible for your heating or cooling trouble, and may need replacement at some point in time. But even when it doesn’t seem to be causing you trouble, new thermostat installation with any of the following setups can be quite beneficial.

  • Programmable Thermostats – Programmable, digital thermostats are much easier to read than manual thermostats, which contain dials and sliders that can be tough to align properly. Oftentimes, homeowners end up setting the temperature much lower or higher than they need to compensate for the lack of accuracy and continue to make frequent adjustments throughout the day. This wears down the system quickly and costs a lot of money to run. With programmable features, you can schedule your thermostat to adjust to an energy efficient temperature when you’re away and come on automatically before you arrive home.
  • Wireless Thermostats – A wireless thermostat is more accurate than a thermostat that’s wired into the system as it can be placed in any location in the home. A technician can find a location that is out of the way of windows and in a location most representative of the average temperature throughout the house. These units can still be programmable and may even have the ability to connect to a smart phone in some cases.
  • Zone Control Thermostats – Looking for a way to control the temperature throughout the home with multiple thermostats spread out in various areas of the house? A zone control system can do just that, but it will take more than simply wiring a few new thermostats into the existing system. Experts will need to access your ducts and install dampers throughout the ductwork that open and close as needed to adjust the temperature. Each damper is connected to its own thermostat, and all of the dampers can be controlled individually or at once from a master thermostat. This helps everyone in the home to feel more comfortable and allows you to monitor efficiency with greater accuracy. We recommend a wireless thermostat for zone control.
