When it comes to upgrading their climate control, many people tend to focus on things like their heaters or air conditioners. This makes sense, as those systems are obviously the ones that do the majority of the work. However, those climate control systems do not operate independently. Every climate control system you have relies on a thermostat to give it instructions. Without a thermostat, your climate control would be virtually non-existent. If you’re in the market for a new heater or air conditioner, have a look at these 3 reasons why you should upgrade your thermostat as well.
The older a thermostat gets, the more inefficient it becomes. Sure, it isn’t put under the same amount of strain that your actual air conditioner is during operation. Even so, however, wires and sensors wear out. Things degrade as time goes on, and eventually your thermostat will become so inefficient that it just can’t maintain your climate control anymore. When that happens, you need to replace it with a new one.
Older thermostats used to have two settings: on and off. Since that time, there have been some pretty incredible advances in thermostat technology. Newer thermostats are capable of maintaining different behavior settings for different days of the week, and can even learn from your heating and cooling habits. After a few weeks of using these adaptive thermostats, you won’t even have to adjust them yourself; they’ll take care of everything for you.
As thermostats improve, they become better at actually doing their jobs. Modern thermostats can maintain climate control much more easily than thermostats from ten years ago. If you upgrade your thermostat, you can actually save yourself some money that would otherwise be wasted on less effective models.
