Most homeowners in North America rely on HVAC systems to ensure that their homes have adequate heating and cooling regardless of the season and local climate. Thermostats are essential in HVAC systems, as they’re the interface homeowners use to adjust the temperature to their preference. Regardless of how big and advanced your heater or AC unit may be, however, it won’t perform optimally without a properly-working thermostat, which has a varying service lifetime. All systems in the house will need to be replaced at some point in time, and thermostats are no exception. So when is the proper time to replace your thermostat, and why should you do it? Air conditioning repair experts from Home Air Services are here to help answer this question!
Replace Along With Climate Control Systems
Thermostats have varying service lifetimes, but heating and air conditioning systems, in general, need to be replaced after a decade or so. This is one of the best times to replace your thermostat, as it would be ill-advised to modernize your climate control system but not your thermostat. Considering how much you’ll be spending for the replacement of the entire climate control system, the thermostat will be the least expensive component, and is a solid investment in your well-being.
Thermostats are no stranger to the effects of wear and tear. As time goes by, their efficiency will inevitably go down as well. Like most pieces of system hardware in your household, they can experience problems at times that will cost you more to fix if you don’t attend to them right away. Your thermostat’s dead zone (the temperature range where it shouldn’t activate), for example, becomes more sensitive and grows wider and wider as time passes. Save on possible expenditures by contacting trusted HVAC companies to have a look at your thermostat and climate control system.
Having a modern, updated thermostat can significantly increase the comfort and convenience you experience at home. Older thermostats rely on manual dials to adjust the temperature, while modern systems can be programmed to suit your preferences, like adjusting the temperature before you wake up and arrive home. Not only that, but state-of-the-art thermostats can also adjust the temperature in a faster and more efficient manner, which will lower your energy bills.
