Homeowners have many options when it comes to thermostat replacement – how do you know which type to select? Learn the basics of each type to see what’s right for your needs:
About half of the average home’s total energy consumption comes from heating and cooling system use. As the thermostat controls its operation, thermostat replacement is a great place to start if you want to save money and reduce your household’s energy consumption.
The manual thermostats in many homes just aren’t a great tool for saving. Programmable, WiFi and smart thermostats make it easy for homeowners to initiate the temperature setbacks that achieve significant energy savings. WiFi and smart thermostats allow users to connect with their HVAC systems and actively monitor energy consumption through data collected by the thermostat. This information helps households make changes that increase energy conservation and save even more on utility bills.
While you can buy a new thermostat at your local home improvement store and it comes with instructions for installation, a DIY job is not always the best choice. Proper installation is absolutely necessary for your new thermostat to deliver the performance you expect – it’s a job best left to the pros.
First off, selecting a new thermostat is a challenge – there are so many products available! Your HVAC technician knows all about the different models and how they work – he or she is able to recommend the right fit for your needs. Plus, not all thermostats work with every type of heating and cooling equipment. You need to be sure your new thermostat is appropriate for your HVAC system, which your HVAC technician is able to ensure.
Skilled HVAC technicians perform thermostat installations quickly and with accuracy. For many homeowners, a DIY job becomes frustrating and time-consuming. Professional thermostat installation is pretty affordable, so why waste a day battling with tools and decoding technical instructions?
