The finest heating and cooling equipment in the world is essentially useless without a thermostat to control it. A thermostat is responsible for turning your HVAC equipment on and off at the appropriate times in order to keep your home at your ideal temperature. However, today’s thermostats are so much more advanced and capable than the antique mechanisms of the past. Whereas old units essentially only had one function, today’s modern thermostats offer increased degrees of control, automatic programming, intuitive displays and user interfaces, and everything in between. Choosing a high-quality, modern thermostat to control your HVAC equipment could be one of the best decisions you make, particularly with how stress-free they make controlling your system and how much they could help you save on your energy costs.

Should I Replace My Thermostat?
If your thermostat has stopped working or is working erratically, you’ll need to have your unit serviced. However, should you repair your current thermostat or replace it with a new, more sophisticated unit? We generally recommend replacing your thermostat when something goes wrong with it, unless the problem that caused the error in your thermostat was actually an issue in your HVAC equipment itself. The reason for this is that modern thermostat technology is so much more energy-efficient that the savings are too good to ignore. And when you consider that a top-of-the-line replacement thermostat could be had for just a few hundred dollars, they even pay for themselves fairly quickly.
You should replace your thermostat if:
- You’re replacing your HVAC equipment
- Your thermostat is more than 10 years old
- Your energy bills are rising inexplicably
- Your current thermostat has failed completely
There are a few instances when we do recommend repairs for thermostats. For example, if you already own a modern thermostat model or one that is still competitive and compatible with today’s models, then an upgrade isn’t necessarily financially beneficial. Likewise, if your thermostat has a simple problem, such as a dead battery, then simply changing the battery solves your problem for an extremely low cost. However, if you’re not sure what’s wrong with your thermostat and you want to make sure you get the best solution for your situation, request an inspection and diagnostic service from one of our skilled technicians.
Upgrade Your Home to Smart Thermostat Technology
Smart thermostat technology has radically changed the way we heat and cool our homes. Smart thermostats are models that can connect to the internet through your home’s Wi-Fi network, giving them added flexibility and functionality. Smart thermostats have the ability to update their own firmware automatically, ensuring that they’re always using the best information and programming available to run your system as efficiently as possible. Some utilize real-time weather data to keep your home comfortable based on the weather conditions outside. And many others can also give you total control over your HVAC system from your smartphone or tablet. As a result, you can turn your system on or off, see real-time statistics, and make adjustments from anywhere in the world. All of this makes them extremely adept at saving you money, and they can do all of this for the low cost of just a few hundred dollars plus installation. This makes smart thermostats one of the single best dollar-for-dollar investments you can make in your home.
