Home Air Conditioning Thermostats,
Do you think your Air Conditioner is not working properly? Does your unit cycle a lot throughout the day? Well the problem may not be with the system itself, but perhaps with the Thermostat controlling it. A Thermostat is the control station that communicates between your heating and cooling system to allow a steady temperature throughout your home. For example, if you set your thermostat at 78 degrees, then your home will maintain at 78 degrees until it is changed. The system will continue to run until the desired temperature is reached, then it will cycle off until the temperature in your home has changed. Then the system will turn back on to reach the desired temperature again.
Since the Thermostat is the most important role of your system, it is recommended that you purchase one that is suitable for your air conditioning system. Just like determining the size of your unit for your home, selecting the right thermostat for your system is practically the same concept. With today’s new technology, there are various types of thermostats to choose from. Here are a few options:
The best technology has made its way to a programmable thermostat. We all have hectic daily schedules that can often leave us forgetting things. With a programmable thermostat, you can now program any temperature setting for any time of day. If you work late and want the air conditioner to turn on around 8:00pm, then you can lower the temperature during the day and raise the temperature around the time you will be coming home. You are now in full control without physically touching the thermostat every time you are wanting to change the temperature.
As great as the programmable thermostat is, there are still several people who continue to use these digital thermostats. The simplicity of pushing the buttons to change or set the temperature is an old fashioned method that still continues to work. Many homes are comfortable with using this type of thermostat as opposed to the new technology with the programmable ones.
So here is the highest quality of technology these days. It is called the Smart Thermostat. Like any other product that has the word “smart” in it, these thermostats go above and beyond control. You are able to control your thermostat any where that has a signal. For example, is you were going on vacation and wanted to make sure you turned the Air Conditioner off, all you have to do is look at your smart phone and it will give you all the information. You can turn the temperature down on your way home or turn it up when leaving the house. These Smart Thermostats are the future products that will allow you to have more control over your home from any where possible.
You can save almost 15% a year on electricity bills by turning the temperature back by 7-10 degrees Fahrenheit for about 8 hours a day from your normal temperature settings. As we always mention here at LWR Air Conditioning, it is highly recommended to have a professional install the thermostats. Anything that has to do with your Air Conditioning system should always be handled with care. Don’t make your system work harder than it should to provide your family with the comfort you are looking for inside of your home.
