Cincinnati Thermostat Replacement and Repair

Thermostats for your home can range from uncomplicated manual models to innovative programmable thermostats or advanced smart thermostat devices. The thermostat that is the most suitable option for your home is determined by the style of heating systems and cooling systems installed and any goals you have for energy conservation and lowering utility bills.

Your thermostat is the head control over the HVAC systems. Depending on the temperature set points, it directs your furnace, heat pump, or cooling system to cycle on and power off, alerting comfort systems to adjust the temperature when heating or cooling is necessary to improve conditions within the house. The strategy used to change the temperature affects the amount of energy savings generated when using the home’s HVAC system.

A thermostat also impacts how many years your heating and cooling system can run – with control over system performance, a thermostat adjusted to save energy does not run HVAC system equipment frequently, which helps prevent deterioration that eventually causes equipment failures and the need for a new unit. When the thermostat tells your heating and cooling units to work around the clock, parts sustain wear rather quickly.

Contemporary thermostats, including standard models, are designed with the latest technologies that deliver better accuracy and temperature control, and consequently, improved indoor comfort. New thermostats help generate energy savings so homeowners save money, lowering heating and cooling expenses by around 20%. Purchasing a state-of-the-art thermostat provides you with a more comfortable indoor atmosphere now and helps save cash as time goes by.

Do I Need to Replace My Thermostat?

Thermostats must be upgraded at certain times. As time passes, accuracy is lost, units sustain damage, or essentially they become obsolete as a result of innovation. Consider a couple of different reasons why you should replace your thermostat.

  1. Older obsolete thermostats end up having a larger margin of error in room temperature readings, so the thermostat may turn off heating and cooling before reaching the chosen temperature. This error results in wasted energy and poor indoor comfort.
  2. Thermostats should be placed in proper spots in the home, otherwise, they can’t function as anticipated and may even be ruined. If placed in direct sunlight or near a drafty spot, the thermostat should be moved by an HVAC technician, or replaced.
  3. If your thermostat is damaged, a replacement is necessary. The units are susceptible to very high temperatures, smoke, increased humidity, and various overwhelming conditions – upgrade the thermostat if there is fire or water damage in your home. Pest issues may also affect thermostats, particularly the electrical wiring enclosed by the drywall.
  4. Once you purchase and install an upgraded heating and cooling system, it is certainly time to change your thermostat. Changing the thermostat in conjunction with the new heating and cooling devices makes certain your new HVAC system has compatible controls. New heating systems and cooling systems sometimes need a thermostat with properties unavailable on your existing unit. Ask a technician for help as you choose a new thermostat appropriate for the new system’s specifications.
