Indianapolis Programmable Thermostats and Smart Thermostats

Home thermostats range from simple manual units to sophisticated programmable thermostats and smart thermostat models. Which thermostat is best for your household depends on the type of heating and cooling system you have in your home, how you want to use your thermostat, and the features you want to use.

A thermostat is the “brain” of your home that keeps you comfortable, as it is in control of the HVAC systems. Based on your temperature setting, it regulates when your furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner turns on and shuts off, telling these systems if heating or cooling is needed to change the temperature inside the home. The way you adjust the temperature of the thermostat impacts utility costs of operating your HVAC system. Your thermostat also has a hand in how long your heating and cooling system will last – with control over system workload, a thermostat that is set with energy savings as a goal won’t operate as frequently, thus sparing the cooling unit and heating systems the wear and tear damage that ultimately leads to breakdowns and replacement. With a thermostat set to run back to back, system components wear out sooner.

Modern thermostats, even the most basic ones, are built with the latest technology for more accurate control over temperature, and therefore your comfort. New energy savings thermostats help homeowners save money and decrease heating and cooling bills by about 20%. Investing in a technologically advanced thermostat creates a more comfortable home now, and will save money over time.

When to Replace a Thermostat

Home thermostats do not last forever. Over time, they lose precision, become damaged, or simply become outdated due to today’s ever-changing technology. While frequent replacement isn’t typically necessary, here are a few reasons you’d want to upgrade your thermostat.

  1. Old, outdated thermostats have a greater margin of error when reading room temperature, so it may shut off heating and cooling before the proper temperature is reached. Incorrect temperature readings can cause energy waste as well as discomfort.
  2. Thermostats need to be installed in an appropriate location, or else they do not perform as expected and may be damaged. If the thermostat is in direct sunlight or near a drafty area, it at least needs to be relocated by a professional, if not entirely replaced.
  3. If the thermostat has been damaged in any way, it should be replaced. They are sensitive to high temperatures, smoke, excessive humidity, and other extreme conditions, so replace the thermostat if your home was damaged by fire or flooding. Pest problems can also damage thermostats, especially the wiring hidden behind the wall.
  4. When you buy and install a new heating and cooling system, it is definitely time to replace your thermostat. Replacing the thermostat along with the heating and cooling equipment ensures the controls are properly matched for the system type. New equipment models may require a thermostat with features your current model does not have. Ask your technician for assistance in selecting a new thermostat that’s fit for the job.
