It’s Time to Upgrade Your Thermostat
Often, when we show up to perform routine maintenance on an air conditioning system or repair a broken heater, we see one of those old manual thermostats on the wall. Thermostats can work for a long time. The problem is that thermostats that have dials and sliders instead of digital screens do not work as well as newer models.
In fact, you might be spending more than you think. If you frequently readjust the thermostat setting because you cannot seem to get it right, that’s costing you money. The more your air conditioner starts and stops, the more energy it needs to use.
It can also be really tough to read the temperature setting when you are using a slider to set it. You might think you are setting the thermostat to 77°, for example, when really it is at 75° or 76°. Just a couple of degrees off, and you could be spending way more than you need to on your energy bills and wearing down your AC system faster.

Thermostat installation requires the help of an HVAC expert. If your new thermostat is positioned improperly, it may give a false reading of the temperature in the home. It must be properly hooked up to the air conditioning system and heater controls, and any indoor air quality systems or zoning controls you may have.
