“Why Do I Need a New Thermostat?”
Okay, so maybe you’re wondering why you’d even need a new thermostat for your home. We understand this. The thermostat is the unsung hero of the HVAC system. People often think that they can just use the thermostat that they’ve always had in their home indefinitely because it’s just the switch to power on the heating and cooling system—nothing more.
While we understand this conception of a thermostat, we want to assure you that this couldn’t be further from the case. Your thermostat is the brain of the HVAC system, the captain of the ship, the president of the club … however you want to conceptualize it… the thermostat is important. Understand that if you don’t have a great thermostat, you’re just not going to get the right control or the work that you need from your air conditioning or heating system.
How This Upgrade Helps Your Home
Take a moment to walk over to the thermostat that you’ve got in your home right now. What does it look like? If it’s a big, blocky white thermostat that’s either a dial or slide system, then your next step needs to be to pick up the phone and call us.
A dial or slide thermostat is good for the time being, but when you want to take your home to that next level where you’re getting a precise amount of control, you’re going to be disappointed with one of these units. The technology we have on the market now includes things like Wi-Fi thermostats and smart thermostats. Both of these systems can provide you with a higher level of control because you can turn on, turn off, or adjust your thermostat from anywhere in the world and get some helpful stats to understand how you’re burning your energy.
Smart thermostats in particular are great because these systems learn how to heat and cool your home after the first few weeks that they’re installed. This means that your home can start to work for you. Your thermostat can begin to auto-adjust to your personal needs and preferences to save you time and money while improving your comfort.
