Having the furnace system inspected is important for the overall efficiency and performance of it. When you follow regular maintenance, you can help the system to last longer as well. The furnace should be inspected before the heating season begins. Through the winter months, make sure to contact us with anything that might be out of the norm. This can include any odd sounds you might here, or if the system is not working correctly. One part to inspect is the thermostat. If the set temperature is different than the actual temperature, there could be an issue with it. The thermostat will start to wear out over time and age. When you look to get a new one, consider purchasing a programmable thermostat.
Having a programmable thermostat will help you to set the temperature in your home, when you want it to be that. There are different models of thermostats that you can by. We can also help to advise you on which one would be right for your home and lifestyle. One thermostat allows you to set Monday through Friday the same, and have the weekends different. This works great if you have a consistent work schedule through the week. Another option is to set each day separately for the thermostat. If you have a schedule that is different each day, this may be the best option for you.
Setting the Thermostat
With a programmable one, you can program it for temperatures for certain hours of the days and for days of the week. This is nice for when you want to return from work to a nice warm house. When the temperature is lowered during the day when you are gone, heat and energy will not be wasted. You can program the thermostat to raise the temperature to the desired temperature when you return home. The same can be done at night when you sleep. This can allow you to wake up to a warm and ideal home.
