From smart and WiFi thermostats to programmable and manual thermostats, you have many different options available to you. We’d love to talk you through your options to decide which system is the best for your home’s needs.
Signs That You Should Replace Your Home’s Thermostat
Thermostats and HVAC systems work together to provide your home with relief from the outdoor temperatures. They are designed to read the temperature in your home and then adapt accordingly in order to bring your home to the temperature that you’ve set. However, thermostats, like any other type of equipment, can experience issues that require them to be replaced.
Schedule thermostat replacement services if you notice any of the following issues:
- Incorrect temperature readings
- HVAC system short cycling
- Rising energy bills
- The unit is over 10 years old
- Your home’s temperature doesn’t change
- Constantly shifting temperatures
What Are the Different Types of Thermostats?
When the time comes to install a new thermostat, looking at all of the options available to you can seem overwhelming at first. The team at Robinson Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. wants to help simplify the differences among the systems to help you make an informed decision. We’re proud to offer the following types of thermostats:
These are the simplest and oldest type of thermostat available today. These units are typically the most inexpensive on the market. They’re very simple and easy to operate, and they’re still a very effective way to reach comfortable temperatures.
With programmable thermostats, you can change the temperature at different points throughout the day by programming a schedule. For example, if nobody will be home for 8 hours during the day, you can program the system to run a few degrees higher or lower, depending on the season, so you don’t waste as much energy. Then, the system can be programmed to return to normal temperatures when your family will return home.
WiFi thermostats, or smart thermostats are programmable units that are packed with additional features. These units learn the habits of your home and can automatically adjust the temperature so you don’t even have to think or worry about changing the temperature. Many smart thermostats can also be controlled remotely via a mobile application.
