For the most part, you do not have much cause to interact directly with the components in your HVAC system(s). One major, obvious exception to this rule is your thermostat. Your thermostat is the device that allows you to regulate the operation of your heating and air conditioning systems to begin with, so to say that it is an important component in the system is to make a massive understatement. With its importance in mind, it only makes sense to schedule your thermostat services with a professional HVAC contractor in Fresno, CA.
If you think that all thermostats are created equal, then today’s post is definitely for you. A lot of people fail to realize that they do not have to upgrade their entire HVAC systems in order to get a better, more efficient performance from them. All that you need to do in many cases is, you guessed it, upgrade your thermostat! Read on to learn more about how you stand to benefit from doing so, as well as what types of thermostats you should consider.
Get Rid of That Old Manual Model!
First things first: if you are sliding or turning your thermostat’s controls in order to set temperatures throughout your home, then you are using seriously dated technology that is definitely not doing you any favors. Simply upgrading to a very basic digital thermostat with push-button controls and an easy to read, digital display is going to be a big step in the right direction. It allows you to set temperatures more accurately and you won’t be tempted to fiddle with the controls, wasting energy in the process.
Consider Using a Programmable Thermostat—and Program It!
A lot of homeowners have programmable thermostats in place already. These thermostats are digital, but also allow you to set heating and cooling programs that work around your schedule. No longer will you have to choose between maintaining ideal temperatures all day long in an empty home or coming home to an uncomfortable environment at the end of the day. Just remember that you actually have to use this function to reap its benefits, so take a few minutes to set it up and don’t ignore the energy saving benefits it can offer!
Smart Technology Works for You!
We install a number of great smart thermostats from Nest, Honeywell, and Sensi. Smart thermostats offer all of the programmability that you can want, but let’s face it, mistakes happen. When you are getting ready to go out of town for a stretch of time, you may forget to adjust your thermostat settings. You don’t want to have to go all the way back home to fix the oversight, right?
You won’t have to when you use a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can be controlled remotely. You can adjust temperatures from the internet-enabled system of your choosing, including your smartphone. Saving energy while living more comfortably has never been easier!
