Why Is Upgrading Your Thermostat Important?
For those still using slide or dial thermostats, it may seem unnecessary to upgrade the thermostat. After all, it’s working, right? It may be working, but it is doing the absolute minimum: telling your heating and cooling system when to turn on and off. If you want to have some real control over your heating and cooling, it’s time to upgrade. The first reason it’s important to upgrade is to have the ability to precisely set temperature. According to the EPA, every degree you can lower your heat or raise or air conditioning can save you 3% on your annual costs. A slide or dial thermostat does not allow you to set precise temperatures, so they can easily cost you money in excess energy.
Can My Thermostat Be Repaired?
For those who have already invested in upgrading a thermostat, you may be wondering what to do when the thermostat malfunctions. The answer is simple: call us for repair. While many homeowners may just replace a broken thermostat, they likely haven’t made the same investment you have, particularly if you have opted to use a smart thermostat. Additionally, replacing a broken thermostat with an inexpensive type of thermostat just means you’ve bought yourself some time before the next breakdown. Our pros can help get your thermostat back on track with expert repair services, and show you how you can maintain your thermostat to reduce the incidence of future problems.
What kinds of repair problems can you see with your home’s thermostat? For starters, the wires inside your thermostat can corrode or fray over time. When the wiring is maligned in some way, your thermostat can’t work properly. Another problem we see frequently is dusty instrumentation. The components inside your thermostat are very sensitive, and if they become covered in a layer of dust, this layer can interrupt the normal operation of the components.
