What Are My Options When It Comes to Thermostat Upgrades?

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

If you have an older thermostat that was installed many years ago or well before you purchased your home, it may be time for a replacement. Older thermostats often contain manual controls: dials or sliders which are difficult to move exactly into place as needed. Often, you end up setting the thermostat too low in the summer to compensate for the lack of accuracy or too high in the winter, which means you spend way more to heat or cool your home. Furthermore, the parts of your HVAC system become overworked if you’re constantly adjusting the temperature on a system that’s difficult to control, which could wear down the parts far too quickly.

Consider saving some money by installing a new thermostat with the experts at Davison Heating & Cooling. We can make sure your thermostat is set in the right location for optimal efficiency and that the wiring is reliable and accurate for your family’s continued comfort. We can help you choose from any of the following.

  • Digital, Programmable Thermostats: A digital programmable thermostat is the next step up from an older manual thermostat. You can take advantage of energy saving features, such as programming the thermostat to an efficient temperature until 30 minutes before you arrive home from an event, rather than leaving it running at an ideal temperature throughout the day.
  • Zone Control: Are you looking for a way to control the various rooms in your home separately from one another? This will require more than a simple thermostat upgrade. A technician will need to access your ductwork and install dampers in different areas that open and close when you or a family member control the heating or AC in that particular room or zone.
  •  New WiFi-Enabled Smart Thermostats: A WiFi-enabled “smart” thermostat works in conjunction with your smart phone, tablet, or any computer with internet access. You can view the current temperature in the house from nearly any location, make adjustments now, or make changes to the programmed settings. Many smart thermostats even “learn” your preferences and adapt to your habits within a week.
