The thermostat is the brain of your home’s HVAC system. It tells your heating and cooling system when to turn on and off based on the temperature you’ve set. If your thermostat is malfunctioning or old, it may not function properly, causing additional stress on your HVAC system which can lead to costly repairs.
If you’re in the market for a new thermostat, contact Grove Heating & Cooling in Davidsonville, MD. Our friendly HVAC technicians are happy to help you find the right thermostat for your home.
If you haven’t shopped for thermostats in a while, you’ll probably be surprised at all of the new features that are available. Let’s learn more about:
Manual thermostats are not programmable. You simply set them for the temperature you want to be maintained in your home and leave them. It’s going to end up costing you money if you don’t remember to reset them each time you leave home. In most cases, there’s no reason to keep the same temperature in your home when you are not there relative to when you are there.
Programmable thermostats are a large step up from traditional, non-programmable units. You can set a custom program to change the temperatures during work hours, vacations, or other times that you won’t be at home. You can program them to bring your home to the temperature you desire before you arrive. This can lead to big energy savings.
Wi-Fi thermostats can be controlled from anywhere that you have access to the Internet. Even if you’re away on vacation and forgot to set the thermostat before you left home, you’ll be able to do so easily and quickly with this type of unit.
Just as their name suggests, smart thermostats are indeed “smart.” They can automatically adjust the temperature in your home based on the changing weather conditions outside. Smart thermostats can even learn your preferred temperature settings over time and make adjustments automatically. You’ll also receive regular energy reports about how you’re using your HVAC system, which can help you find ways to save money on your energy bills.
It’s important to maintain your home’s HVAC system with routine annual maintenance. Just like your car, boat, motorcycle, or even your bicycle, your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems require regular servicing to remain in peak operational condition.
