When to Replace Your Thermostat
As a general rule, thermostats should be replaced roughly as often as the climate control systems themselves. That means you should be installing a new thermostat every 10–15 years or so. You can, of course, always replace it before then if you run across a more modern option that really appeals to you.
Thermostats wear down a bit differently than other systems. Their ability to sense temperature changes declines over time. Their dead zone, in which they’re supposed to activate but don’t, gets a little larger. An older thermostat may even start sending conflicting signals to the heater or air conditioner. When that happens, you should definitely trust us to replace it for you.
We Install All Kinds of Thermostats!
Gone are the days where everyone had the same mechanical thermostat installed in their home. Modern thermostats cover a huge range, with each model providing its own unique benefits to homeowners. For example:
- Smart Thermostats: A smart thermostat will learn from your climate control habits over the first couple of weeks that you use it. Once the system has learned how you like your indoor climate at various times of the day and night, it will be able to adjust itself without needing any input from you. This will make things more convenient, and also save you money by eliminating wasted energy. Nest thermostats are a popular smart thermostat brand, but it’s important to have technicians install these so they function properly.
- Wireless Thermostats: A wireless thermostat, or Wi–Fi thermostat, is a central thermostat with a number of satellite units. These smaller units can be carried from room to room, and transmit their temperature readings back to the central thermostat. This greatly extends the system’s effective range, allowing you more control over your comfort in different rooms of the house.
