We Provide Thermostat Upgrades
Most people are pretty good about upgrading their climate control systems when they can no longer serve to the best of their abilities. Far too few, however, upgrade their thermostats often enough to maintain their efficiency. As a thermostat wears down over years, it will become less and less able to properly measure the temperature in the home. The dead zone, which is the temperature range at which the thermostat should activate a climate control system but doesn’t, will grow as the system wears down. That, combined with the advances in thermostat technology over the years, will quickly make the thermostat obsolete. This is why it’s so important to make sure that your thermostat is upgraded by a regular basis.
Types of Thermostats Available
There are many different kinds of thermostats available on the market today, including:
- Adaptive Thermostat: Also called a smart thermostat, an adaptive thermostat learns your climate control habits over the first few weeks of use. After that time, the thermostat will be able to adjust itself for maximum efficiency and comfort without needing your input.
- Wireless Thermostat: One of the primary issues with traditional single thermostats is that they can only monitor one area of the house. Wireless thermostats involve one central thermostat and a number of wireless satellite thermostats. These satellite units monitor the temperature throughout the home, and send the data back to the central thermostat. This makes it much easier to maintain a comfortable climate across the entire house.
- Digital Thermostat: Pretty much all thermostats these days are digital, but we’re talking about a specific kind of thermostat. These thermostats can hold a great many different settings, so that you can set an ideal temperature for different days, months, and even entire seasons.
How Often to Upgrade Your Thermostat
The average thermostat is good for about a decade, at which point it will start to have more and more trouble keeping up the same level of efficiency. At that point, you should consult with a professional about whether or not it’s a good idea to install a new thermostat in your home. Don’t wait too long, though. The longer your thermostat operates at a sub–par level, the more money you’re going to lose.
