Why It’s Important to Upgrade Your Thermostat

You may not realize it, but your thermostat can be a tremendously useful tool in helping you control your cooling. Simply put, without a thermostat, your system wouldn’t know when to stop or start. Doesn’t it make sense, then, that you use a thermostat that can truly help you control the operation of your air conditioning system? The experts at Boehmer Heating & Cooling can help you do this with a thermostat upgrade. Why upgrade? Here are some reasons to consider it:

Improve Energy Efficiency

If you are still using a slide or dial type of thermostat, you can’t set an exact temperature, nor can you program your thermostat to accommodate for times when your home is unoccupied. Imprecise temperature setting can cause you to be off 2-3 degrees, which can cost you money, comfort, or both. When you can program your system to power down and up, you won’t have to worry about forgetting to re-set your temperature every time you depart and arrive home.

Matches Your AC System

Do you have an updated cooling system but an outdated thermostat? This can result in loss of comfort and energy loss. It’s important to match up your air conditioning system with your thermostat so that you can maximize the usage of your whole home AC system.

Better Comfort

The digital face of an upgraded thermostat allows you to set precise temperature settings, and the face is large enough that it can be read easily. Precision makes for better comfort and better energy efficiency.

Your thermostat is hard-wired into your home’s electrical system, and is the control center for your home’s comfort. As such, it’s important to hire trained experts for a thermostat upgrade. The specialists at Boehmer Heating & Cooling are here to help you with all of your thermostat needs. Just give us a call today and we’ll schedule you an appointment for your home in Pittsburgh, PA.
