If your furnace isn’t putting out as much heat as it used to, or your air conditioner is breaking down every other month, you probably get around to replacing them pretty quickly, right? No use in having a system that doesn’t actually work properly, after all. What about your thermostat, though? Do you know how well it’s actually working? Many homeowners don’t actually know how often they need to replace their thermostat, which is a shame because it often lessens the efficiency of their climate control systems.
Reasons to Upgrade
The thermostat is the core of every climate control system, yet it is often difficult to gauge its performance properly. Many homeowners use a thermostat that is old and worn out, though they don’t know it. As the thermostat ages, the wear and tear on the system causes it to gradually lose control over the climate control systems. The sensor in the system becomes less accurate, decreasing the efficiency of the heater and air conditioner, as well as the comfort level in the home. Since you may not be able to detect when this starts happening you should have a professional check the system every couple of years to determine when it needs replacement.
Fortunately, you have many options for upgrading your old thermostat. Smart thermostats learn from your climate control habits over time, eventually adjusting themselves without requiring manual input. Wireless thermostats use satellite units to extend the effective range of their control throughout the house. With the myriad of different thermostat models available, you should be able to find the perfect system to fit your needs.
