5 Signs You need to Replace Your Thermostat

The thermostat is a critical piece of equipment that ensures you and your family feel comforting warmth and refreshing cool at all the right times, through the year. In order for you to continue experiencing the comfort that keeps you at your best, you’ll need to keep an eye on the performance of your thermostat from time to time. After all, nothing is meant to last forever and your thermostat is no exception. Check this blog for 5 signs that will tell you it’s time to part ways with your old thermostat and say hello to a new and advanced version.

Sign 1: Inconsistent Temperatures

Do you feel your home has uneven warm or cool spots? Uneven temperatures across your home is a sign that your home thermostat may have a problem or that it may require an upgrade. Of course, there may be other factors too at play, like a temperature sensor that’s inaccurate. A visit from your local HVAC maintenance expert will help identify the cause, in case it’s something other than your thermostat.

Sign 2: Rising Energy Bills

One of the signs that you need a new thermostat involves something a little more infuriating than uneven temperatures. Rising energy bills. A faulty or beyond-its-prime thermostat will lead your HVAC system to consume more energy than usual, to achieve the desired heating (or cooling in warmer seasons). Switching to a new and advanced programmable thermostat will bring a significant drop in your overall energy usage and expenditure.

Sign 3: Frequent Shutdowns

Do you find your home thermostat turning off before completing its normal cycle? Short cycling is a sign that your system is not functioning like it’s supposed to and can be caused by a range of factors, which includes a faulty thermostat. If a maintenance check by a qualified HVAC technician confirms this, consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat as quickly as possible.

Sign 4: No Remote Capability

Imagine reaching your workplace and realizing that you’ve left the heating system running at home, with no one around to switch it off. An old generation thermostat doesn’t provide you the technology to operate your heating system remotely, as will the newer generation, programmable thermostat. You’ll also experience other advantages like higher energy efficiency, consistent temperature zones, system alerts and so on. The older your technology, the earlier you need to consider an HVAC thermostat replacement.

Sign 5: Constant Manual Adjustment

With a new home thermostat, you will no longer need to walk over to manually adjust or readjust the heating temperature. Modern thermostats feature smart technology that enables them to understand your temperature preferences across spaces and seasons, and then use this data to automatically adjust the temperature zones within your home to ensure your optimal comfort.

 

If you experience one or more of the above listed signs, it’s time to catch up with the latest thermostats going around. It’s an investment that will pay for itself in terms of reduced energy bills and increased comfort and convenience for you and your family.
