How to Select the Best Thermostat Upgrade for Your Home

thermostat upgradeThe thermostat in your Palm Beach home is an important part of your HVAC system, even if it’s one of the smallest and inexpensive parts. Thermostat technology has come a long way in recent decades, which means that if you’re still using the same old analog unit, you’re missing out. Once you learn a bit about thermostat upgrade options, it’ll be easy to find a new unit that will save you money and improve your life.

Thermostat Options

There are two main types of upgrades from a simple analogy unit: digital and programmable. If you’re not looking for much of a change, a digital unit would be best. This type of thermostat¬†works almost the same as an analog unit, but has a nice screen display that helps you target temperatures more accurately. If you want to see huge benefits, opt for a programmable unit. It’ll take some time to get used to, but once you adjust the settings correctly, it will automatically change temperature settings at consistent times.

Compatibility With Your HVAC System

Not all programmable thermostats are designed for your specific HVAC system. Some are designed for one stage HVAC systems, while others can accommodate multi-stage heating and cooling systems. Find one that’s appropriate for the type of system you have or are upgrading to. Additionally, if you’re interested in advanced features like a zoning system, choose a model that’s compatible.

Using a Programmable Unit

After you’ve installed your new thermostat, follow the accompanying instructions to pick a schedule. You can typically choose from everyday, five days on and two off, as well as other options that match your work week. From here, input your preferred temperatures and times so the thermostat knows when to tell your system to heat or cool.
