Now Might Be a Good Time to Upgrade to a New Thermostat

ThermostatHopefully, you’re already getting your home ready for cooling season. If not, then now would be a good time to start doing things like scheduling preventive maintenance for your air conditioning system. Aside from that, though, now might also be a good time to upgrade your thermostat. Let’s have a look at some of the options for thermostats that you can install in your home, and the advantages that each can offer you.

Why Upgrade Now?

Thermostats wear down over time, just like other HVAC systems. The longer you keep using your thermostat, the less able it will be to efficiently control your heating and air conditioning systems. On average, you should be replacing your thermostat every ten or fifteen years. Nothing is stopping you from doing it more frequently, of course, but after 15 years you really should be installing a new system to prevent any substantial drop in HVAC efficiency.

Options for New Thermostats

There are many different options you can pick from when it comes to installing a new thermostat, including:

  • Wireless Thermostats: These are systems that make use of a number of wireless units, which can extend the effective range of the thermostat’s central unit throughout the house.
  • Smart Thermostats: Smart thermostats learn from your climate control habits over the first couple of weeks that you’re using them. After you’ve been using the thermostat for a while, it will be able to adjust itself without needing your input. This will both save your money, and make your home more comfortable both day and night.
