It’s small but powerful. It controls your entire air conditioning system with a simple click. And when it’s off, your whole system is off.
Yes, we are talking about your thermostat, and sometimes, it can be the one thing that is making your entire system malfunction. If you’ve had our Ierna’s Heating & Cooling technicians visit your home more than once to fix the thermostat, and are continuing to have problems with it, it may be time for a thermostat replacement for your Tampa air conditioning system.
Reasons to Replace Your Thermostat
As we mentioned above, frequent repairs to your thermostat can be an indication that it’s time to consider replacing it. Here are a few other reasons you may want to replace your current thermostat:
- Better energy efficiency – if your thermostat has some age to it, or isn’t programmable, you may be losing out on some significant energy savings. Older thermostats may not be as accurate as they once were, leading to temperature readings being incorrect. Programmable thermostats give you a level of control over your cooling that you simply can’t get with a non-programmable one, allowing for less cooling during the quiet times in your home and more when busy and occupied.
- Better comfort – new thermostats not only allow you to manage the timing and temperature of your cooling: you can also measure and program humidity levels and control whole-home air filters and purifiers. Being able to control your entire cooling system from your thermostat means you can tailor your indoor conditions to exactly what you want and need.
- You are using an old thermostat – it may still work, but if your home’s thermostat is more than 10 years old, you are missing out on the better efficiency, comfort and ease of use you can get with a new thermostat.
