The thermostat is an important part of your HVAC system in your home. This is a way you can control what temperature you will want your home to be. As important as filter maintenance is, so is thermostat maintenance. Make sure to contact us and we can inspect the thermostat in your home. This way we can ensure that it is operating efficiently in your home. It will also help to keep the home at the most ideal temperature that you would like. If you notice that the set temperature is different than the actual temperature, then there is an issue. We can inspect it to ensure the issue is only located to the thermostat part.
The placement of the thermostat is also is important. You will want to make sure that it is not in any direction of any direct sunlight. Also move the thermostat away from any registers, vents, or fans. The air movement around that can give it a false reading. If a false reading occurs, then the system will not be efficient and will have to work longer and harder to get your home to the desired temperature. When installing a thermostat, make sure you plan to have it placed in an area that is free from these things, all day long. Check the spot several times throughout the day to ensure it will not be affected by any windows or vents. We can also check the location for you, but checking it through the day is always the best.
Since there are several models to choose from for a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider when you are in and out of your home. This way you can schedule the thermostat to operate only when you are there. This also helps to reduce the chance of energy being wasted. Based on your schedule and lifestyle, we can also recommend an ideal thermostat for you.
