One of the first questions we often get from a homeowner who has a struggling HVAC system is, “What’s wrong with my heater?” While this is an appropriate question to ask, and one we will seek to answer in a later blog post, it’s not the only question you can ask. Another question you could ask us is, “What’s wrong with my thermostat?”
Thermostats and heaters work hand in hand. Without a proper heater, your thermostat has nothing to direct. But without a proper thermostat, your heater is never going to reach the temperatures you need it to at an affordable cost. That’s why upgrading with the help of smart thermostat services in Pine Bluff, AR can be such a good idea.
By upgrading your thermostat to a smart or Wi-Fi capable system, you can get better heat without having to do any work on your heating system.
The Advantages of a Smart Thermostat
Right off the bat, there are a few things we need to get off our chest. Upgrading your thermostat doesn’t have to be a boring experience, even if most homeowners think it is. Increased efficiency and comfort aren’t the only things that can be an effect of upgrading your thermostat. You could also see some pretty great benefits that make your life easier.
- Convenient operation. When you upgrade your thermostat to a smart or Wi-Fi capable system, it’s more convenient to operate. For example, with Wi-Fi capabilities, your thermostat can be controlled by your smartphone from anywhere as long as you have access to the internet. This means you can start your air conditioner on your way home from work to be ready when you arrive!
- Programmable settings. Keep temperatures mild at night and comfortable during the day with programmed temperature settings in your thermostat. Run a tight schedule that keeps bills low and your family comfortable by programming your unique preferences right into the thermostat.
- More information. With a smart thermostat, you get more information to make the right decisions. You can find out the outside air pressure, weather trends, and even receive notifications when there’s something wrong with the HVAC system. Isn’t that nifty?
The Best Reason for Upgrading
From a professional HVAC perspective, there’s one reason to upgrade your thermostat that goes above all the convenient points we already listed. That’s the more effective and efficient operation of the HVAC system. Newer thermostats like smart and Wi-Fi capable systems are better at keeping your heater or air conditioner operating efficiently. The system knows how to keep them at mild temperatures, provide the correct signals to the system, and let you know when things aren’t operating efficiently.
Basically, upgrading is one giant leap toward improved home efficiency. With this kind of technology, you’re in excellent shape going forward. A smart thermostat will curb your bills, keep your HVAC system in good condition, and let you know when something should be addressed by a professional. It’s time to upgrade today.
