Whole–House Thermostat Services in Buffalo, NY
Most of us have become quite accustomed to the presence of a thermostat in our Buffalo, NY homes. They act as the control panel for our heating and air conditioning systems. They’re designed to last for many years, and breakdowns are rare: when they do take place, it’s usually easier simply to replace them rather than repair them.
That said, thermostats have undergone a huge number of changes in recent years and if yours is more than a decade old, you may want to look at replacing it with a more high-tech model. Wireless thermostats and smart thermostats have replaced traditional digital thermostats with a wealth of new features. The friendly pros at Roy's Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can install them for you, as well as moving thermostats whose location has proven problematic. We take the worry away, so contact our team today!
What Do New Thermostat Models Offer?
As the control panel for your heating and air conditioning system, thermostats are vital for ensuring maximum energy efficiency in your Buffalo, NY. Digital thermostats allow you to set timers to start and stop the air or heat when you wish, and new smart thermostats offer even greater flexibility.
For example, wireless thermostats allow you to control the thermostat from anywhere in the world thanks to an app on your phone. Some smart thermostats do more than that: analyzing your heating and cooling habits and making little adjustments to improve efficiency, and/or making automatic adjustments to counter local trends such as spiking humidity levels.
How Do You Know When to Replace a Thermostat in Buffalo?
Our team is on hand for quality thermostat replacement and thermostat installation, but only you, the homeowner, can decide when that is appropriate. Generally speaking, if your thermostat is more than ten years old, you might want to look into the options that a new thermostat can provide. In addition, if your thermostat is an older model that uses mercury, it should be replaced immediately, as you don’t want this substance in your home.
Beyond that, thermostats rarely suffer from damage and can be used effectively for many decades. Upgrading a thermostat is usually necessary only to provide greater long–term savings and increased features for your home.
We Can Repair Thermostats Too
A problem we often diagnose has nothing to do with the thermostat in question, but its placement in the household can be problematic. For instance, it may be exposed to excess sunlight, or might be placed near a kitchen, neither of which allows for accurate gauging of the temperature in your home. This is often the case with older homes that had the thermostat put in after their construction.
In these cases, the solution isn’t so much replacing the old thermostat with a new one as it is moving the thermostat to a different spot in the home. A trained technician can find a location that ensures the maximum amount of accuracy, then move your thermostat quickly and effectively. Our team will discuss your options with you and make suggestions as to the best spot!
