Tips for Choosing A New Thermostat
Are you looking to update the thermostat in your home? Thankfully, thermostats have come a long way with technology with plenty of great options on the market today. Whether you’re looking to upgrade to wireless or smart thermostats that are controlled by WiFi and your phone or a standard updated thermostat, our team at Troutman Heat & Air is here to help!
First, you’ll need to know what type of thermostat is compatible with your HVAC system. Is your unit agreeable with a smart thermostat? Is your smart thermostat able to connect with your system? These are both great questions that you’ll need to be answered before you purchase a thermostat.
Next, you’ll want to do some homework on finding what thermostat is best for your household needs. If your Wifi is weak like it is in some rural parts of Arkansas, you may consider avoiding a smart thermostat controlled by wireless devices.
Then, you’ll need to determine what type of programming options your thermostat will have. If you like to set your thermostat at a certain temperature throughout the day at a certain time, you’ll need to be sure that’s an option with a new system in place. The good news is, most thermostats these days do provide scheduling and programming options.
Lastly, you’ll want to have a professional come out to install your thermostat and correctly sync it with your HVAC system. By allowing our team to take care of this task for you, we can ensure it’s installed correctly and working at optimal efficiency for your system.
As a general rule of thumb, you’ll most likely need to consider upgrading your household thermostat whenever it comes times to replace your HVAC system. That way, both are up to date and working accordingly.
