Few people give much thought to their thermostat. Maybe you have always just thought of it as a feature attached to the wall of your home that controls the heating and cooling systems. But if you find yourself with the need to replace your air conditioning unit or have a new air handler installed, did you know that this is the perfect time to install an upgraded thermostat to fit your new system?
If you have decided to opt for a new thermostat, you must consider several available options, including digital, multiple climate zone, programmable, and Wi-Fi thermostats. There are also other features you may way to look into, such as adjustable cycles, filter-change reminders, auto changeover switches, and more. So how do you determine which thermostat is best for you?
Here at Acosta Heating & Cooling in Charlotte, NC, we like to make sure that you are comfortable in your own home. From helping to maintain your system to installing new parts and ducts, we strive to keep our customers satisfied–and this includes helping you choose a new thermostat for your home.
The most popular type of thermostat today is the programmable thermostat. This allows you to program a schedule into your thermostat to raise or lower the temperatures at specific times of day. If you are going to be away during the day, for example, you can set the thermostat to a higher or lower temperature and then have it return to normal just before you return home. You can also set the thermostat to go down to a lower temperature while you sleep.
The Wi-Fi thermostat is an option you can combine with a programmable thermostat. This allows you to program your thermostat remotely from a computer, cell phone, or other mobile device.
If you are unsure what you need in a thermostat, don’t hesitate to ask us for advice. We’d also be happy to install your thermostat for you and make sure you receive the best levels of comfort in your home.
