The thermostat is a small, but important part of your HVAC system. Today’s electronic models are a far cry from the early mechanical ones and play an important part in making sure your system is running efficiently.

The evolution of the thermostat

Modern thermostats are almost exclusively digital. By setting the thermostat to your desired temperature, this sophisticated equipment monitors the air in your home and maintains the temperature within a couple degrees.

The setback feature is an important way the thermostat can help manage energy costs. Today’s programmable devices can be set to normal temperatures when you are home and an alternate temperature when you are away to cut down on energy usage. And, with all the new smart phones on the market, new thermostats can even be programmed and changed right from your phone!

Because of its complexity and importance to your heating and cooling system, thermostats should be installed by qualified technicians. If you’d like to explore some new technology options, give us a call today.
